Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts. We were so lucky to have been able to take Del into our lives, and of been able to keep her with us for so long. She was a wonderful animal, and whenever someone dares to tell me that horses cannot feel loyalty and love, I have always thought of her. Its funny though, how its always brought up how well we must of cared for her. We did love her, and we always did the best by her that we could by providing pain relief, food, and shelter, but it was all will that kept her going. Delriah knew how much she meant to all of the kids out at the farm, and she gave herself freely to them whether they were the community service workers that everyone had forgotten and written off as screw ups, or the kids that had no legs or couldn't see. Thats what was amazing about her, and thats what kept her going and going until now. She knew that they needed something to accept them for who they were, and she knew that the 'something' was her :)

I am so glad that we were able to have this photoshoot of her done before she passed away. They really show what kind of horse she was. We're trying to get permission to actually bury her in one of our pastures from the state, and plan on building a memorial for her at the front gate even if we cannot bury her here. Delriah will not be forgotten!
