For Sally White, her big day of life was planned to be different. Sally, aged 28, wanted to make a grand entrance for her wedding and she did arrive in style, with a mane laden love of her life, Miller.
Sally walked down the aisle with her “love at first sight”, her horse Miller. Sally found Miller a while back near a field in Swansea where the horse was abandoned in a miserable condition and was deprived of food and water.
The condition of Miller was so appalling that the animal had its ribs poking out. After the animal was rescued from the hillside, it was taken for rehab to RSPCA’s Gonsal Farm Equine Welfare and Rehabilitation Centre, near Shrewsbury, Shropshire which happens to be Sally’s workplace.
The vets had given up hope and feared that the poor animal would give up on life in a short span of mere hardly any days. However, the animal care assistance at RSPCA put their efforts in to prove this wrong. With love and care, Miller got back to a stronger physical state to become a prince from pauper, from miserable skeletal horse to a majestic stud.
From there on, Sally and her mane love have been an inseparable pair. As she says, she fell for Miller for the first time she saw her. Her care and love for the animal brought back a starved horse to life and transformed it into an spectacular stallion. She further puts it in plain words that they are now a cohesive unit. And that is one of the main reasons why she wanted the hoof beats to walk down the aisle with her on her wedding day.
For Sally's wedding with Surveyor Mark White, aged 30, Miller was her ride to the church. Even she had made his mini replica on the cake. Despite the fact that her delight was cut short by pouring rain on her wedding day, the bride’s love for Miller and excitement for the day did not mellow a bit.
A week later, she again donned her wedding gown, and had a specialized photographer to create a compilation of stunning photographs to be carried down the memory lane.
Miller, once a frightened animal along the wilderness of Swansea has now become an undivided part of Sally’s life. After espousing the horse, Sally has also skilled him for competitions for dressage.
Monica Dickens once said, “You and your horse. His strength and beauty. Your knowledge and patience and determination and understanding and love. That's what fuses the two of you onto this marvelous partnership that makes you wonder, "What can heaven offer any better then what I have here on earth?"
Indeed, Sally does have found a little heaven of her own her with Miller. Along with her husband, the bride has also found a “Mane” love for her life.
