She robbed me in broad daylight =-)
The first time I met Bailey was 9 days after my double mastectomy.
Rob took the first test drive and I could see how sweet she was! Nothing would do, until I got to have a turn too. Even though I still had 2 surgical drains attached to my waistband, I was determined to ride her. Yes, you may be thinking I’m crazy and that’s ok, I’m really NOT reckless.
Honestly, I highly value my life
BUT I can’t keep fighting this hard for it, if I’m not going to fully live it.
My form of cancer is rare, 5% or less of diagnosed breast cancers are this kind:
Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
That means Oncologist have had fewer opportunities to study it and formulate treatment plans.
When Rob was ready to climb down, I deliberately scooted the mounting block into a position that would place the horse between us and Sarah & Derrick.
He dismounted and said she was a really nice ride. I looked him in the eye and quietly said
“I’m going to ride her”.
Before they knew what I was up to, Rob had nearly boosted me into the saddle. Too late to object, it was happening 🤗
It’s all Bailey’s fault.
She drew me in with kind eyes,
smooth trips around the arena
and a forelock that looked like a kindergarten kid had styled it. lol
She had my heart 🧡🐴🧡
