A Year Ago, Everything Changed


A year ago today, I set Monty free from his pain to soar with the angels. I never realized when I wrote the poem for him to put on his memorial page, that the last two paragraphs would be so prophetic. Monty's Memorial

I had one of those. A grey gelding soul mate. I lost mine in Feb 2008. Has it been that long already? Wow. He looks a lot like Monty it is why I bring it up.

Here's to them.

My heart still breaks for you. While I know he is in a better place, I wish he was still here with you.

So sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful boy. The poem was very touching. Hang in there - I know this must be a rough day for you.

I have a one year anniversary of the loss of my "dream come true" I still cry all the time about it but I also think of all the wonderful things he has brought to me - even in his death.

I hope you think about all the wonderful things Monty has brought to you, even by your loss of him...

I still cry when I think about the horses I have lost. My Russell R. was my soulmate, and my PJ was my heart. My Si was going to be the perfect horse, but I lost him after just six short weeks. They are all locked in my heart, sharing my everlasting love with the Boys I have now.

My heart aches for you.

That is a beautiful poem you wrote for Monty - brought tears to my eyes.

I lost my girl last year to the careless mistake of a trainer. It was brutal. I've finally come to "forgive" her, sort of, or at least let go of the anger. But I cry everyday. It's torture. I did a sculpture on my blog page of my sad waif holding her bandaged horse. I hope one day you'll feel better. I wonder if I ever will or if I'll ever get over losing her.

He was such a beautiful horse. I haven't experienced such a loss--hope I can handle it as gracefully as you. Hug Rugby.
