Her broken horse heart

The brunette twin walked in from horseback riding lessons last night and collapsed in my arms. She sobbed as she told me that Penny was sold.

Penny was her favorite lesson horse. The brunette twin loved Penny like she was her own horse. I couldn’t do anything but hold her while she cried. It broke my heart to see her so sad.

One thing we know about the brunette twin is that she’s a very intense child. She feels things deeply, so her tears weren’t a complete surprise. It was her first broken heart related to horses she loved, but it won’t be her last. Sadly, I’m sure there are more tears in her future as horses are bought and sold all the time. With time it will become routine, but last night it just hurt.
