Well tomorrow will be one week since Boo has crossed the rainbow bridge. It is getting "easier" as I know that we did what was best for him. I thought we were going to lose him a few times last winter and I know it would not be fair to put him through another winter as our winters are really harsh.

So I hold onto the great memories of him. We are doing a really nice memorial for him where he has been buried. I still miss him dearly, and I always will. But I am forever grateful for everything he has taught me and all the fabulous memories he has given me.

Last Weds evening I spent the night just grooming him and feeding him almost 10lbs of carrots and holding onto every moment with him.

One of my kiddos took this pic of me with him Weds night

And this is while I was grooming him and he saw the bag of carrots. Needless to say he was a little excited

This is from last winter when him and Mare were sharing hay under the fence. Boo is the one in the blue blanket on the right. Mare is in the plaid blanket.

This summer

I have lots more pics but they have other people in them and I don't want to deal with editing them to take the people out.

Well yesterday was one week. I actually went to ride in the outdoor today for the first time since we buried Boo there. I couldn't bring myself to ride at that end of the ring but I did ride there. It was hard knowing he was buried right where I was riding. At the same time it was comforting knowing that I was up there riding where he was happiest because I knew he was with me enjoying the ride as well. Mare was an angel(for her that is lol). I had a great ride and I knew it was because Boo was watching over me from his resting place.

It has gotten a lot easier. I know he is at peace and no longer in pain. I don't have to stress and worry when we have a cold snap hoping it doesn't cause him to colic. I know that he is a happy boy galloping the big cross country course in the sky when he isn't watching over us in the jumping ring.

I miss my Boo but I am holding onto the happy fun times with him just like he would want me to.

I think riding up there today actually really helped me come to peace with it all.

That is great. You are doing better than I am. It will be 4 months on the 29th of November. I still break into tears on a daily basis. With that being said I do smile at some of the memories I have of him. He was a character, a willing and sensible partner and a dream to ride on the rail and on the trail. You are strong.

Sorry for your loss. Sounds like he was special boy.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
