Things We See in Dreams by SilverFlameWanderer Things We See in Dreams by SilverFlameWanderer
Lately, I've been really missing owning a horse and showing. Even though I'm able to ride a few horses a couple times a week, and enjoy the experience of riding different horses regularly, I still feel that emptiness where my horse used to be. And, lately, horses have been filling my dreams. Usually I dream about Azteca, but this wonder showed up a couple nights ago, and I haven't been able to get him out of my head. He needed to be drawn. It's just a little sketch, and the first thing I've drawn in a long time, but he makes me happy. I'd like to spend time on a nicer drawing of him at some point.

Well, happy to see some art from you :aww: This is a very pretty sketch and cannot wait to see it fully drawn. I imagine how must you feel now that you don't have Azteca. I miss Lisa that I have also dreamt of my days in Ocala. I think the feeling dont go away. At least you can ride, I do miss it so much!

Thank you! :D It's great to be drawing again. I'd gotten so out of the swing of it, and I think I forgot how much I love it and how good it is for me :)

I hope you're able to find yourself around horses again! It never does leave you :heart:

This guy sure is a beauty. Definitely understand the empty feeling of not having your own horse too, I miss my girl... I hope you're able to have one of your own again eventually :)

It's tough...they really become a part of you...

Thankfully there's a nice stable about 10 minutes from where I'll be living when I move for graduate school. One of the other students in the program just bought a horse. I'm hoping that within the next year, I'll have found a nice jumper I can at least lease.

Yeah they sure do. When you have to let one go it always feels like half of you went with him or her.

Well that's a good thing :) That's the next best thing. May not make up for not having your own completely but it does help. I hope you can, that will be nice. I'm looking around for a horse myself, or at least a place I can ride. Not many of those near Portland though, the city is too big I guess...

I've been really lucky the past year to have a trainer that lets me ride a few times a week at no cost. He's out of town for shows for weeks at a time, so he likes to have someone around to ride the horses that don't travel. But it's definitely not the same.

I hope you can find a place to ride! I'm sure there are some places a little out of the city?

Yeah, definitely not the same, but pretty nice that you don't have to pay him to ride his horses. And I'm sure his horses are happy to have you around as well :)

I'm looking. Mainly what I haven't found is a place that I can afford along with school, because I haven't been lucky enough to find someone who's desperate for exercise staff. I'm going for a degree in computer animation, haven't decided yet though if I'm just going to do a bachelor's or if I'm going to go all the way and go for a master's.
