Born in Ohio in 1998, Gem is a registered breeding stock pinto with mostly Arabian blood. She stands at 15h but believes she is twice that big.
Gem is my partner in an attempt to find freedom, explore new places and learn new things. She has already taught me more than I could have ever dreamed of:
How to have a sense of humor when everything is falling apart
How to fall and get back on time and time again
The futility of approaching a problem the same way more than once
How to let go of past mistakes and move on
She isn’t an easy partner. She holds you to your best at every moment and will not let you easily forget your transgressions. She makes you work for everything you gain the honest way. There is no easy way out with Gem.
In the end, she was just what I needed even if it took a long time to realize that.
