In Memory of Promise

Today is the day, nine years ago, that I lost my wonderful Promise mare.


I will never forget her.  If you'd like to read more about her, please visit this post I did last year, and appreciate your horses each and every day that you have them.

  1. Even after years of them not being with us any longer we never forget them. She looks like a wonderful mare.

  2. Every one steals a piece of our hearts. I think Promise took a huge chunk of yours. She was a beauty.

  6. I still choke up when I think of all the horses I have known, starting with my first (I bought him when I was 30 years old) named Uncle Nestor, an AQHA gelding with all the personality of the man for whom he was named, his breeder's uncle. All our fur family members live on in our hearts. We are richer today -- and better people -- because of all the memories we made with them when we were fortunate enough to have them in our lives.

  10. I'm very sorry for your loss. I feel the same way about my Eddie. Although he's been gone five months I still think about him every day, and shed a tear for him almost every day. I don't know that that will ever change, but I'm ok with that. That huge feeling of loss just means that I loved him that much.

    The special ones just do that to us. It's the price we pay for having such a blessing in our lives :)

  11. So sorry for your loss. I have yet to lose a horse but I have lost some dogs that were lifelong companions. I know how palpable the grief is... even 9 years later. I believe in heaven and I believe all of God's creation is there. So too is your sweet Promise.
