The end of Reinin’ D Ranch
…..It was just another one of those dull day’s at reinin’ d ranch.
Arwen was going through the unpaid bills, but she couldn’t concentrate for a minute…..
…...Ever since she can remember, having her own successful ranch, breeding and training top quality quarter and paint horses, being well known for her ranch and horses has been everything she had dreamed of. And she had achieved all of that with reinin’ d ranch...but after losing her best friend in a big competition she didn’t enjoy her work anymore.
Slider has been the best horse at the ranch, she has raised him since the day he was born and they’ve grown together….they’ve been the perfect team….till that sunny day in june when he broke his leg…..tears started to stream down her face and she quickly wiped them away when she saw her sister Alice enter the office.
“Are you okay dear?” Alice asked her worried, Arwen managed to put a smile on her face and assured her that she was fine, “why are you here Alice, shouldn’t you be working the horses with the boys?” , “Oh I did until this package arrived, and since it’s addressed to both of us, I thought we should open it together”.
Arwen took a quick glance at the weird looking package, “Wait is that the logo of Lone Kinero Ranch on it?” Arwen asked astonished, “You’re right! It’s the logo of grandpa’s ranch, I wonder who has send the package I haven’t even thought that his ranch still existed, it’s been a year since he passed away”.
Arwen ripped open the package and found a bunch of key’s and a letter, “This seems to be from grandpa’s laywer” she said “Grandpa is leaving the ranch to us…..the laywer say’s there has been some trouble with grandpa’s wife who fought to get the ranch but now things are settled and the ranch, the 15 horses and the 100 sheeps and 50 cow’s belong to us.”
“Arwen that’s crazy what are we going to do with 2 ranches” , Arwen was completely lost in thought and didn’t answer “Arwen damnit! answer me!” Alice demanded.
“Well truth to be told I thought about selling reinin’ d ranch for a while now” Arwen said hesitantly, “i’m not happy anymore, since Sliders accident I ….” Arwen couldn’t answer her sentence, she hugged herself and stared out the window trying to keep the tears from flowing once again.
Alice came up to her and hugged her tidly “I know the whole accident been horrible and that it’s been haunting you but I didn’t know that it’s been this bad” Alice explained worried , “Arwen it wasn’t your fault, there wouldn’t have been anything you could’ve done to save Slider”....
After a few moments of silence Alice took a step back and looked into Arwen’s tear stained eyes “You know what!” , “We’re going to sell reinin’ d ranch and most of the horses. We’ll move to Lone Kinero Ranch and keep on grandpa’s legacy. I always loved his Kinero.” Alice said with a wide grin.
Arwen remembered this day like it been yesterday, while she stood on the pasture, looking at the 4 aqh & aph she couldn’t part with when they’ve sold the ranch 6 years ago.
Alice and her grew up on Lone Kinero Ranch with her grandpa and grandma.
But after her grandma died her grandpa remarried and things went south….. she never got along with her grandfathers new wife and so they lost touch until that day the letter of his laywer arrived….
It feels good to be home and to be able to carry on her grandfathers legacy, after all she loved him dearly.
And she was more than exited to try to get back into dressage, her grandfather teached them western & english disciplines but with her own ranch her knowledge about most english disciplines faded more and more.
