R.I.P Major

I just thought I'd write something in honor of Major. I was flipping through my phone today and I found this picture of him. The only picture I have of him.

Whoever told Brooks & Dunn that cowgirls don't cry is a liar ;)

Rest in peace big boy. You'll never be forgotten, I promise.

He was a very handsome horse. I have an older horse and i know that one day her time will come and that will hurt he was loved and enjoyed by you. You were his biggest fan.

Chingaz, are you talking about MY Major?!?!?

SWEET? HAHAHAAHA He got you fooled! No, Major was special. Deep, deep down, I really truly believe that he wanted to love and show affection, he just didn't know how.

Sometimes when I cleaned his corral, he would rest his muzzle on my hip and doze off. I think that was his way of saying "I feel comfortable with you, but this is as far as I get. Take it or leave it, girl..."

And I'm just fine with that. I'm glad I could be there for him while he was being put down.

However, one thing that I can't seem to get over are the dreams I have of him. I keep having dream after dream about him, almost every night. But they're weird dreams. Like he's in his corral and I know he's there but I just can't see him. Or I'm walking him down the street and I turn around and he just wont be there...

Saturday night I had the weirdest dream. I was swimming in this really deep lake, and the water was really clear and I could see all the way to the bottom. I could breath under the water, which was weird. But I was swimming and Cricket was under the water swimming and playing with me and she could breath under the water too. I was panicking because I couldn't find Major. I swam deeper and there was this cave, and he was standing in it. And I could see that he was holding his breath. I was trying to pull him out, but the current was really strong and every time I moved I kept getting swept out of the cave. I was grabbing his legs and trying to move him, but HE was what was keeping me from falling out into the current because he was stronger than it. And I knew he was struggling to keep his breath. And I was saying, "Swim! Major, SWIM!!!" but he wouldn't move. And he just sort of looked at me, shook his head and took a deep breath of water. His entire body went limp and I remember him being swept out by the current.

Then I woke up. I haven't had a dream about him since. Thats the last dream I remember having the last few nights.

It was really weird...

Just thought I'd add that.

Has anyone else had dreams about their horses who have passed?

Ya, I had a few dreams after we had to put down my dad's old gelding. Don't remember any of them, but I had a couple of days where after dreaming, I'd go to the ranch and expect him to be there, and of course he wasn't. As weird as it is though, I didn't have any dreams about my 3 year old I had to put down, and he was my baby, my dad's horse was just my dad's horse that I rode sometimes.

Sorry to hear about Major. :(

I still have dreams about my colt that I lost years ago. We had a very intimate connection and I still miss him terribly. :(
