I have been in a state of the blues today , couldn't really think why, but on the edge of tears and just ,well plain old sad. I thought , well the is stuff going on at work that is irritating and frankly stupid, but that ,while it doesn't help isn't usually enough to get me down. After all I work to live , not live to work so...
Then I thought maybe it is the fact hat hubby is away, and it sure is part of it I miss him and the longer this job goes the longer his 2 weeks out feels ,and the shorter the 1 week home.But again , that is life and I am pretty used to it .
Then I saw a post from a friend of mine , Janice at Own a Morgan and well frankly I panicked! I had a feeling what the post was about and for the whole day I avoided reading it Her beloved Gelding Texas has passed away at 34yrs old. I shouldn't be sad he lived a long and wonderful life in her care, but I so know the empty feeling they leave whether they have been with 3 yrs or 30 ,horse lovers know it doesn't take long for them to become part of you .
That coupled with the senseless loss Of Toffee ,my friend Sarah's horse (Heartsick) and hearing from my Sister in law about a foaling gone horribly wrong for them which resulted in them euthanizing both the mare and foal , I am just hurting for those I care about . The foaling , was one of those things, they were there they tried , and did their very best as did their vet , but sometimes the outcome is just not good in spite of everyone's best efforts.
Any of us who love animals , cats, dogs ,birds , horses,etc know going it that they will not be with us forever, but it still never prepares you for the wrenching pain their leaving brings . Call me a bleeding heart if you want I somehow feel at least some of the feeling of loss each of those folk are suffering.
Reminders of loves of my own who have left their mark in my heart.
So while you may have read this before , please bear with me as I share it again , in love and support to those who are hurting , and to remind them they were as much a blessing to their horses as the horses were to them. And may we all meet again someday , somewhere ,just over the Rainbow Bridge
Made of Horses
For my entire life it seems
Horse have been in my dreams
In my life and in my space
A feeling that you can’t replace
The Grace and beauty that they share
Cannot be found, just anywhere
They are a thing second to none
To let them go leaves me undone
And heartbroken tears I will cry
When all to soon they say goodbye
Each takes a piece of my own heart
When the sad time comes to part
But leaves behind no empty space
Just glowing memories in their place
I watch them grow and watch them dance
And know that it was worth the chance
No rage against natures forces
It has left my heart
Made of Horses
Stay safe my friends
