My Latest Love…

This blog could have had so many titles:  Perfection…Another Reason to be Thankful…Aw, Shugha, Shugah…and many more.

Sugar couldn’t have been sweeter than she was today!  By 8:00 this morning, she had my 10-year-old niece, Lindsay, scrambling up on her back for an hour-long trail ride, and she actually kept up for the first third of the trail!  I have never seen anyone mount up the way Lindsay does and while most horses probably wouldn’t have tolerated it…Sugar did!

Then, only six hours later, she was pulled back into service to be led around for my 7-year-old nephew, William, and Les’s 5-year-old granddaughter, Karoline.  Again, she was golden! 

Today, she was yanked on, scrambled over, and had so many mixed signals that if they’d have been on any other horse all of them would have been on the ground – not with Sugar!

For today, she’s my Golden Girl and can do NO WRONG:)

Tomorrow might be another story!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
