These are the last of the pictures that I will get to take of her. Yesterday she was to leave for a new home. The farm had no use for her as they decided she would not be a good fit for the therapian program. I’d like to say that I’m surprised, but I’m not. It is fine. She will get to cart. The new owners do not ride, they drive carts and so that Gordy Girl’s new job.
I want to be upset, but the truth is…I know it is for the best. I will miss her, but it is for the best. She was actually supposed to have gone to these new owners originally, but due to unforeseen circumstances at the time, they had to decide against her. Circumstances changed and they contacted the necessary resources to find out if Gordy was still available. Things workout the way that they are supposed to. I don’t know that I’ll ever be good with the letting go part. I’ll make a horrible business owner in the art of being able to get rid of the horses that are financially beneficial. I will want to keep them all. Maybe some day I’ll have that option. I’ve been wanting to get some black background pictures of her and this put a fire under my feet to do it. I’m glad that I did. I think that they are spectacular. I wish that I had gotten some more of her counterpart Jay before she had left. I don’t know what happened to her. I can only hope that they found a good home for her. I can only hope that Gordy’s is a good home for her. Anyway, I think that these pictures turned out amazing. I’m very proud of this batch. Like with Buddy, a few are a little softer than I would prefer but I do not feel that it takes away from the pictures. I think that they have captured the grace, elegance and beauty that is Gordy Girl (I never could think of a good nickname for her, but I also never wanted to change her name from Gordy….it just doesn’t leave much for coming up with a good nickname).
I hope that you like these pictures as much as I do. I included both colored and black and white. I couldn’t decide which ones that I liked more. I think at least one of them should go into my art show pieces, but for the life of me…I can’t decide.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
