This thread brought a lump to my throat and I can especially relate to you Louise. I had my own horse for years, he was my escape from the stresses of the world and my non judge mental friend. Now he is gone after a dreadful accident and I decided not to get another due to rising costs and the commitment etc (although I now exercise a friends horse at weekends). My garden has become more important to me than ever, and has never had so much time lavished on it, it was a bit neglected ! My hubby always says I look happier when I have been digging around in the dirt or potting up plants, and its also given so much pleasure to our elderly parents.
