Chroi is pulling a cart! & I’m pulling all-nighters…

After more than a year of planning, And more than a handful of “roadblocks,” Chroi is officially “in cart!”   I wish I had documented and updated as much as I’d originally “intended” (something about paving stones for a specific road…?), because it’s been quite a process and a project! From introducing her to the… Continue reading Chroi is pulling a cart! & I’m pulling all-nighters…

There are no coincidences

Last year when Chroi was in training with Cori, Cori sent me a lead on a cart for sale. The price was good and it looked perfect for Chroi. Unfortunately, because of everything that had happened, we couldn’t have afforded a cart at even a fraction of the price. I called the seller anyway, but didn’t get a response.… Continue reading There are no coincidences

Public Meltdowns- a post-dated story of a stranger’s kindness

It may have taken a year to tell this story, but I feel like it’s still worth telling.  And so, without… Continue reading Public Meltdowns- a post-dated story of a stranger’s kindness

The Soul of the Family

“You need to write about what Chroi has meant to you during this time,” my husband texted me. During this time when I’ve felt darker and heavier, more sad and more depressed than I even realized until someone wedged her way through my door to offer me a hand up. However, when I sat down… Continue reading The Soul of the Family

Next chapter: Off to Driving Training

On June 22nd we undertook our next chapter: driving training. Chroi will be in training with Cori of CERT Horsemanship. Training began straight from day 1, with Chroi’s first “session” being loading her in the trailer. Watching Cori work with her was such a pleasure and a relief: a pleasure because she was completely calm,… Continue reading Next chapter: Off to Driving Training
