    I'm sorry for your loss, that truly sucks. Just take comfort in the fact that you did the right thing for your horse. The right decisions in life are, unfortunately, often the hardest ones.

    For you, from the words of Soloman.

    Ecclesiastes 3

    3
    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven

    2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

    3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

    7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

    9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?

    10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

    11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

    12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

    13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

    14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

    15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

    I felt awful seeing the colic thread-then this morning seeing this thread. I was going "Oh, No, Oh, No". I so loved reading the Lacey adventures-you are a very good writer. So many of us were caught up in your adventures. My shirt is splashed w/tears & I send you prayers & hugs. So glad she is still in the pasture & you have a "Lacey" spot to visit. You gave her such a good life & all the love a horse could ever want. RIP Noble Lacey.

    I am so sorry to hear about this, my thoughts are with you.
    I will say to you what was written by our lovely vets to us when we were going through a similar thing not too long ago with one of our treasured animals

    Thank you, you guys.

    I just can't hardly believe it. I mean, I knew that this was probably going to happen one day [being older, and a gray horse....I always knew that I was going to be her last owner and I figured she would probably go due to a colic] but this was such a shock.
    She was giving a lesson Wednesday afternoon, and colicking less that 24 hours later.

    Such a shock.
    I'm just glad that she went quickly.

    And you guys were right - I had always worried about how I would "know" when it was time, and yesterday I knew.
    You guys had always reassured me that she would "tell" me and I would "know". I had hoped that would be true but I kinda figured y'all were telling me half-true things to make me worry less.
    But yesterday she DID tell me and I did know.

    The property owners offered to have a grave-plaque made for Lacey's grave and brought me a card. SO SWEET.

    The goats and I looked at her grave together this morning. Atticus thoroughly sniffed the whole thing, while calling for her. Watching him grieve is so sweet and so sad. He misses his "mom."

    Her pasture feels so empty without her. So so empty. Like its purpose is gone.
    I'm sure a new purpose will be found but right now....

    Also, I just have to show you guys this.
    Yesterday it was raining so hard. Big, get-everything-soaked, raindrops. Then, right before sunset, there was a break in the rain and a double rainbow appeared.
    I was so touched by what my friends had to say: [click it for a bigger picture]

    Emily, I know nothing can compare to your baby girl, but you are welcome to ride my boy any time you need a fix or want to play with a horse with some sass :)

    I am so so sorry for your loss Wallaby, I am in front of my computer miles away from you crying :( I always read your journal, but have never commented and have thoroughly enjoyed your writing and your adventures. I am actually pretty sure that your journal was one of the first threads I came across that made me want to join HF. Tons of prayers and hugs sent your way, and know Lacy will always, always be with you. She is your Guardian Unicorn <3
