finally . . . after weeks of torture, i found a great place. i didn’t want to tell anyone until the lease was signed so up until now, mighty man was the only one i told. i’m pretty sure he was devastated. i gave him extra organic carrots and promised to visit as often as possible but he still seemed pretty agitated & stomped around in the mud and then slobbered mud all over my jacket i had just washed due to yesterday’s slobber.
but the management company called yesterday and said i was approved. 🙂 Here it is:
the other exciting news is that mighty man’s mom commented on my blog post and now i know he’s 4 years old and his real name is zegen. zegen means ‘blessing’ in dutch – the perfect name for him, although i can’t help but continue to call him mighty man which was shortened to mighty several months ago and now i’m pretty much down to ‘mite’. i think he likes having a nick name anyway.
it turns out mighty has his own web page! not only is he the most gorgeous horse in the universe, he’s kind of like royalty. he has an amazing lineage which you can see here. such a humble horse, he never even mentioned it to me. anyway, he has a wonderful family who loves him and his birth mom lives right across the street. one of these horses is mite’s mom:
i will find out when i have tea with mite’s human mom. yup, we’re having tea and hanging with the horses! leave it to the kind of luck i’ve had in my 9 months in nj to almost meet someone just as i’m packing to leave . . .
