Horses are another animal with whom Naomi has always been in love. For a while (before we met) she loaned her sister's horse and we've been riding a few times over the years. Recently, though, the time seemed right to scratch that particular itch and we bought Murphy, a wonderful 17 hand Irish sports horse.
Murphy was a tad on the big side for Naomi (but perfect for me!!) and so the sexy Romeo came into our lives a [very] short time later. Romeo is a Chestnut Belgian Warmblood gelding , 16 hands tall and a Grade C showjumper. He was definitely king of the hill [well he thought so, anyway] at the stables in Urmston where we kept both of the boys.
In due course we sold the boys and acquired Midnight, a black Dales X, for Naomi. Midnight surprised us by turning out to be in foal and she eventually produced Jazz, who brightened our lives for a few months before we passed him on to someone who would do a much better job of bringing him on.
Midnight came to Scotland when we moved there, but eventually Naomi's health deteriorated to the extent that she had to give riding up, for the most part. We sold Midnight to an American woman who wanted to do the Lands End to John o' Groats trip on horseback. That trip never happened, unfortunately, but we have no knowledge of where Midnight ended up after that.
