there must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,

I know great horses live again.


  1. How very sad - sending best wishes to you and your friend.

  2. Sorry for your loss. Such a beautiful & kind soul. Hope your haffies help you heal.

  3. So sorry for your friends loss. It is so very hard to lose one.

  4. I am very sorry. What a nice tribute in your post and beautiful sentiment under the photo.

  5. SO sorry for your friend.
