This is Sid.
Sidney is a 5 year old, off-the-track thoroughbred,
that Becky brought home to the farm this past Spring.
(Becky or "Dr. Becky" is Hubbs sister, and shares our farmland.)
When Sid arrived he was underweight, injured...
a very sad horse who had never enjoyed the pleasure of being
out in a pasture.
He had been housed in a stall,
then put back in a stall.
He had never learned how wonderful life truly is.
Sid has spent the past several months under Becky's loving care,
learning how to be a horse again....
learning the meaning of joy.
His days are filled with wonder and adventure
Becky bought him with the hopes that he could become her
cross country eventing horse.
He has spent the last few months learning how to slow down,
to be calm,
to forget the race.
He has embraced what Becky has taught him and risen to the challenge.
He is kind and willing and eager to please.
He does whatever Becky asks him to do....
all wariness replaced by trust.
Best of all, he has a sense of humor!
The two of them are a team.
And this is just be beginning of a beautiful story.
A love story.
PS.....I did a photo shoot of the two of them
which you can view as a slide show....
