Last summer, my friends Brynn and Brian were what we refer to as “big, brave dogs,” and moved to a brand new town. It was a long and challenging transition, and in the fall they were rewarded by finding their dream house. It sits on multiple acres in a lovely town in the Fingers Lakes, and perhaps best of all, it came with two horses.
For as long as I’ve known Brynn, she’s loved horses. Many ladies love their pony calendars and horse photographs but not all of them cross over into the territory of volunteering at stables, taking riding lessons, and spending weeks in Ireland riding on the back of one from town to town. When Brynn found an amazing house that just happened to comewith horses, I knew she was realizing a lifelong dream. I never doubted that she would take on the challenge of owning and caring for these animals but what’s been so neat to see is how much Brian has come to love them and know them. Brian plays with them, cleans them, drives his new tractor around them, and even watches DVDs in order to better his knowledge of them.
Levi and Tess, as their two are called, are in great hands.
