Quote for the week

There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.
Robert Smith Surtees
Chapter XXX: Bolting the Badger, Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour, 1853.

This picture is a couple of years old, but the DOR and I like it. We can often be seen standing like this, sharing a secret, a quiet moment, just sharing the peace of being together. Well not exactly like this, I am not wearing antlers, but we do get our heads close and just share our thoughts. The DOR tells me things that she would never say to a person, and I keep all of her secrets. I know when she is sad, worried, afraid, mad, happy, or is puzzling something out. She says I am her therapist, I think it is just what a good friend does.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

Ponies are great at keeping secrets, aren't they?
