Owning horses is a lifestyle choice. Feeding, cleaning and caring for them is often considered by those around us (who don’t own horses) to look a lot like a full-time job. Or at least a very full part time job.
I admit, it is.
We choose it and we love it.
Which is why leaving the horses at home to travel is always difficult. They are not ‘just’ horses. Unlike asking someone to water the house plants, these guys have names. Likes. Dislikes. Quirks.
Leaving them behind is the hardest part of traveling. I know I have a great team of people caring for them. That isn’t the point. The point is that I LIKE being with them.
It is the lifestyle I choose.
