In 2004 I left Sweden for Luxembourg and I brought Merlin with me; a little white pony. We’d been together for some years so he came along. He was 8 years old and very energetic but basically a hillbilly, I also knew that he liked traveling and happenings. When we arrived in Luxembourg, I had him in my garden for the summer because I didn’t know where he could live. He has had so much action here in Luxembourg for 5 years; working, playing, doing shows, traveling…and growing old. This year he turned 24, the age I had when I gave birth to my first child.
He is tired and he wants peace. I think his bones might ache a bit and his teeth are not so good.
Now I am moving to France, to a small peaceful place where I can do my work and be creative. Of course Merlin is coming, it’s his time to slow down, have some peace and fun. The warmer climate will help his bone and he is safe to enjoy his old age. I still have to find his new home, but I know it’s out there somewhere. After all, we’ve been together for 21 years and it always worked out for us.
