As most of you know I only started learning to ride in my mid 30s ... and about the time I was mastering a basic rising-trot, and learning basic equine skills, Toni bought a new horse for the stables - it was love at first sight.  He was too much for me to handle, yet he was one special boy.

Toni named him, Jaykub, as a lot of Cobs are called Jacob and she knew he had more character than others of his breed.

He was mad ... and had a main skill of teaching everyone that a horse could always win, yet if you asked for help, he was a gentle and careful with you as possible.  He was very intellegent, and sadly had a nervous breakdown, which is when I took on his care, and for 3 months was his only rider, to let him settle - and when the time came, I couldn't say Goodbye.

This picture was taken on that day - the day he became mine.  One thing I must say is that his nerves gave him sweetitch and I am lying on very sore skin, yet we stood/lay like that for quite a time.

I know he loved me - I have never doubted that - yes, we did "come adrift" ... the last twice where the classics of him caring for me.  He dumped me during a lesson, as he had to move out of the way of another spooked horse - in dong so he injured his side on a fence - he dumped me to save my leg (and spun to side-track the other horse).  The last time I fell was rider error - t gallop!  And I fell under him, he missed a stride to avoid stepping on me.  One very special boy.

Sadly, at age 10, I got the phone call I never thought I would have - he had broken his leg, in his own field and had to be put to sleep. 

I miss him - he broke his leg and my heart - one very special person.


Yes, I do miss DJ, but I know he has gone to live in a place where he is having fun and being loved and cared for - a positive end of our story.
