Love is the Dance

Dance.  “Love is the question and the answer.  It is the music and the dancer”  -Anna Taylor.  This is such a beautiful quote and it reminds me of a mare I raised, Dancer.  At not quite two years old she was severally injured, so very much so, the vet suggested she should be put down.  At the same time I was going through many personal challenges.  I made the choice to work with her and the vet, hoping,  she would heal and be sound.   At a time when I was exhausted,  I was also being asked to give intense and continuous physical and emotional support to this mare for more than 6 months.  I did my job and supported her healing and she did hers by accepting it.  We were in each other’s lives and love was the bond.  Wise beyond her years, she came out the other side and brought me with her.   I look back on that time now and know we were a blessing in each other’s life.  I will never forget the love I shared with Dancer.  Valentine’s Day is approaching and love is in the air.   This photo is Dancer competing with Kim Leonard,  at about 5 years old.
