Ok, I will tell our story...
13 years ago Madrileno came into my life. It really was love at first site. We had a great time together and we were really close. Then I moved to ireland as my husband is Irish. The horse was to come with me of course. But to my absolute horror I found out he was sold behind my back to a dealer. Even worse, it was my mother who had done this, eventhough she had nothting to do with him, bought him or was otherwise involved with him. She had simply done this to hurt me, as she had not wanted me to leave Holland. It took me three years to find him. The owner of course didn't want to sell him back to me. The pain was onbelievable. I missed him so much. He even 'told' me how he was doing and I always new if something had happend or if he wasn't feeling the best.
Two months ago I was planning to go to holland for my brother's wedding and I wanted to visit my horse. So I rang the woman who owned him to see if she would let me. So up I went and I was so nervous. Would he recognize me after all these years? I needn't have worried though. I whistled our usual whistle and he lifted his head immediately!! And then a big neigh!! Needless to say I was over the moon. What I didn't know was that his owner was thinking of selling him because she could no longer care for him due to her own health. When she saw his reaction to me, she made up her mind and decided I could have him back. Finally! After 7 long long years, I was getting my best friend back!
I still couldn't believe that this was really about to happen! But, as we speak, he is on his way and he will be arriving on friday morning.
After all these years the coming 3 days will be the longest!
I am the happiest woman on the face of the earth, I'm sure of it! And his arrival will be well documented!!
This is us after just being reunited...
