Dreams


So, last night I had a really random, sad dream. I don't really understand how I have them but sometimes its when I am just really relaxed and others are when i've had to take a sleeping aid cause I have problems falling asleep. Anyways, I had a dream about these two sweet puppies. These are pictures from our Florida trip. Two from driving and the other two while in Pheonix watching Courtney's sister Bridgette's soccer game. The one above is "Spud" and the one below is "Barley" Basically..Spud is courtney's and Barley got attached to me, but is for my other friend Dallas, Courtney's other sister. But, besides the fact that I LOVE them both and wished and prayed that I could keep Barley, they LOVE florida and LOVE their new family!

So, Here's the dream in the bits that I do remember it. We were giving these two adorable puppies away, and we met a the church, which was the church I used to go to in california, and I remember the place and everything so well, I knew it was there. Anyways, these people came and got them in this huge explore or expedition, I don't really know, but anyways, the pups didn't want to leave, and well we didn't want them to go, but what happened next was, they had this door that was slanted and somehow I freaked, but everyone was don't worry they'll be fine...well I had this not good feeling in my stomach and wanted to drive down the road to make sure they didn't jump out, and well to my horror, spud was on the road first, we went the opposite direction as them, and he was well, gone, and so by then i'm bailing and freaking out, like everyone would know I would act, and well we couldn't see Barley until someone was like "there she is in the grass." I ran out to her and she was still alive but there was blood everywhere and it looked like one side of her was just mushed. All I remember after that is that they both lived, they both grew up and were both extermely beautiful dogs and everything was happy.........

K, I know really weird! I just don't understand dreams sometimes. All I know is that these puppies are safe! In florida, and will not be going to any new home anytime soon! Oh man, it was weird.


So, if any of you had any weird dreams like me, let me know, so I know I'm not the only strange one here! ;-) Although, with my luck I am! I miss these pups and going out to see them every morning or night out with the horses, but one thing that it did show me is that I AM NOT ready for another pup just yet! I hope everyone has had a wonderful day! I am going in a few hours to meet with Kim and her girls and meet the boys because tomorrow I start the first day of watching them! WOOHOO! Also tomorrow I find out about the ranch! We'll see, and I know no matter what I will be doing the best thing and the right thing for myself at this time! Oh, and i'll be posting Florida pic's soon! Love you All!

" If There Were No Horses"

"God forbid that I should go to any heaven where there are no horses."
- Robert Bontine Cunningham Graham

I LOVE the song "Wild Horse" by Natasha Bedingfield. It is in one of my FAVORITE moives Flicka! If you haven't heard it, its in my playlist at the bottom of this page if not search it on you tube! The words to it decribe how I feel a lot of the time, and for me, most people know me and horses mesh pretty well. In the song she say's "It happened so fast, How do I turn this thing around, Is this the bed I chose to make, It's greener pastures I'm thinking about, Hmm, wide open spaces far away, All I want is the wind in my hair, To face the fear but not feel scared." When I get on my horse, and ride, the wind in my hair, the rush that I feel, can't be described. It's like a drug! I can throw all my worries out in the wind, and just ride. It's exilarting!


" The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different."
- Hippocrates

The just of the song, is how she feels about someone, how she wants to just be free, and not be worried about telling them how she feels, and to just love them without fear, or being closed in (by fences). Its not how I feel, but there is times when I do feel like I just want to be free, say whatever I feel, do whatever I want! Wild Horses are AMAZING! I'm kinda jealous and I bet my own horses are jealous of them as well!


" We call them dumb animals, and so they are for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less, because they have no words."
