Holly is gone :'(

Today I found out that one of my favorite lesson horses from my old barn was put down tonight. Her name was Holly she was one of the happiest horses I knew. She was also the laziest, but that was what made me love her. She was suffering from congestive heart failure due to some sort of defect. I donít know the details as I just moved away. She was only a mere 12 years old, too young to die.
When I worked at the barn she always was the first one to greet us at 6:00am in the freezing cold with a warm welcome. I could swear this horse could smile!
I learned many a great thing on the back of this horse. I learned everything on this horse she was the first horse I fell off of and it was my fault. She was the first horse I rode bareback and jumped bareback. She was our barns vaulting horse. She was able to help me regain confidence after two bad falls, she was a great and patient teacher and partner. Though I never owned her I always dreamed of.
I cry to think that I will not see her again on this side of life.
I canít write any more now but I hope this is going to lead to something good in the end.
Here are some pictures to honor her.
