Day 08 – A moment, in great detail

Most people's lives are made up of moments ... separated by normality.

So which moment can I talk about ... are you expecting a James moment, a family moment, a Church moment ... there have been lots of each of those ... no, I thought I would tell you about the last hour before Jaykub became mine!

He and I loved each other... I never doubted that, even from day 1.  He looked after me and protected me ... even to injuring himself on a couple of occasions to help me.  However he had what could best be descrbed as a Nervous Breakdown, so Toni decided he would spend 4 months just being ridden by me, before he was sold.  She had offered him to me but I said the commitment was too much.

The last morning, she asked me to get him ready as he was having a try-out ... so could I give him a final groom and tack him up.  She then asked me to watch what happened, so that if I ever wanted to buy a horse I would know some of the things to do.

I sat on the sand school fence for about 1/2 hour watching Jaykub - he was perfect ... the woman loved him.

Toni told her that she had someone else who had already had a try out (which surprised me) and asked me to take him back to his box, and untack him, while re-assuring the woman that she would know that afternoon.

As I brought back his tack, Toni was sitting at her desk, looked up and said

"Well, are you going to let him go?"

I just said "No, I can't"

And, I then found out that she had already spoken to Mum about the money and her boss about his livery ... a I said yesterday, she knows me better than I know myself!

I put Jaykubs tack down, and walked back into his box for a cuddle ... which he returned ... the first time he did that, but then an everyday event.  (I would stand in front of him, with my arms round his neck and he would rub his chin up myback)

One special moment ... one very special boy.
