Chilcotin Holidays

A survivor - Castle story


My name is C. I know the place very well and make sure everyone follow the rules. I'm a leader but not a big bully one like W and B. I like to lead by example and sometimes I have to step back to let other very competent leaders in the front. Usually, people like me for the way I look but I don't like it when all the attention is focused on me. Of course no one around understands it because they like to be in the light and are jealous of me. But if they knew where I came from, what I have been through to be where I am now maybe they wouldn't like to be in my shoes. I'm a survivor. I wear my scars proudly, they are a part of me and remind me of my successes. Failing was not the problem getting back up on my feet was. I wouldn't trust anyone or be on my own, too afraid to get hurt again. But in the end I was well looked after, after some time I was able to trust myself and people again. I am grateful for all the humans around me at the time who made sure my leg would heel properly and got me the injection I needed (even though I hate needles!). Today my staking accident is behind, I still think about it sometimes but I know it makes me stronger and probably a better leader, because I look after my horses, even after Willy and Billy. Especially at night, up in the meadows when most of us are staked and that our lovely humans are not too close. My name is Castle. I am a Chilcotin mountain cayuse horse.
