My cozy Mother-in-Law and I agreed, it was time to talk my husband into letting me out of bedrest and go on a mini-adventure.

So again, they packed me up in the back of our Highlander, blankets and my sweet baby content in the next row.

This time we went to a place that has been healing to me since I was little, the barn!

Still not being able to stand or walk more than a few minutes I knew I wouldn’t be able to do much but Joan exclaimed,

Of Course you should come today! We’ll bring Rocoso and Samantha out to you!

After I broke my arm 6 weeks after my second boy was born, a woman told me I was selfish for continuing to ride since I now had children

I’m glad I didn’t listen. This is my healing place.

As Winston Churchill once said,

"There is nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse"
Dear Rocoso

Bonus: I got to introduce Lorelai to her future best pony friend Samantha!
