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.
