I lost a friend yesterday. I didn't even know, but I started to suspect. I knew she was sick, cancer, and I thought she was doing better. At least for a bit. Yesterday I saw lots of posts saying fuck cancer. Yup. I didn't know she was gone. This morning I saw many more posts. These were more specific. Pat Coulter is gone. And that makes me really sad. Really sad in a tears falling while I type kind of way.
I only met Pat once in my life. She came up to Region X for a show. She was seated all the way across the show hall so we didn't get to visit as much as I would have liked. Performance shows are like that. It was also before I really took photos of people. I stole this one from Jennifer Buxton. I have permanent permission to use her photos, so I guess it's not stealing.

Or through social media, which is also mostly how I knew Pat, I can find some pictures. Here is Halestorm winning reserve champion in AR/CM dressage at TRXC in 2016 in her pony tack that Pat made.
And also winning champion in English Pleasure. I showed this pony in the tack that Pat made for several years. Then I sold the doll and the tack and Halestorm. I had another tack set that Pat made, I can't seem to pull up any photos at the moment. I sold that too. Now I don't have any of Pat's tack. Which also makes me sad.
