I prefer to believe in 'God things' over coincidences myself, and the week after Memorial Day a God thing certainly happened! Over the course of time, especially since we've had the kids, I would occasionally google my old horse's registered name to see if anything came up. She was an awesome 1996 mare, rock solid, that I sold somewhere around 2003. She was a horse I compared other horses to, and let me tell ya, it's hard for them to measure up. I thought when we bought Mel that maybe we had found one, only to be disappointed again, as Mel is a bit hotter than I like for the kiddos.
On Wednesday I googled her name and a Dreamhorse ad popped up. I couldn't believe it! Posted in April, no picture, but definitely her registered name and even the seller's name looked familiar. I yelled to T that I thought I found Sonic, and he responded that he would call. He does not appreciate my negotiating skills...which basically would have consisted of "I think you have my old horse and I want her back! Any price will be fine!". So, I'm sure groaning inwardly, he said he would call. And on Sunday that weekend we drove to pick her up.
We are so ecstatic to have her back. The same owner had her that I had sold her to, and she had done well for them. I like to think Sonic remembers me, she turns her head and comes when I send out my trademark whistle.
