A non-rational purchase....
Rarely do my purchases make any sense, and I am used to that. In fact, I feel it's one of my most endearing qualities! So, when I came home a month ago completely in love with this horse I met, it made ALL the sense in the world to me as to why I should own him. Kay, being the more logical one of us, immediately said "No." Perhaps Kay was right. (Did I just say that on a public forum?!) However, my heart just couldn't quit thinking about this guy.
Several days ago, Kay an I were in the car talking about what she could get me for Christmas and I quickly replied: "That horse."
I was dismissed.
Then the conversation turned to what I wanted for our up coming anniversary and I quickly replied: "That horse."
We discussed how the timing wasn't right currently, etc... and the next thing I know we were at the horse barn "looking" at him. Before we left the barn, we felt pretty secure about adding this guy to our family.
Now, if I'm thinking with my logical brain, this horse makes NO sense. He is 5 years old, has only been gelded very recently, and has had absolutely no training. My non-logical brain says, he's great minded, exactly what I would want if he was trained, and is giddy with excitement.
Meet Henry, my favorite non-rational purchase.....
