you're welcome, it's not nearly what he deserved but I felt I should write something and that's what came to me, if I'd messed around with it have been worse. Chinga was one in a million we were all blessed to share your progress.

Maddie, I'm so very sorry to hear about Chinga! My thoughts are with you!

I cannot even comprehend how you must be feeling, Chinga was my favorite HF horse, and to read upon his endeavors with you was frustrating and rewarding as we mirrored your emotions. I found this poem that I thought was fitting.

"Ill lend you for a little while
My grandest horse, He said,
For you to love while he's alive
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be one or twenty years,
Or days or months, you see.
But will you, till I take him back
Take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief
You'll have treasured memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught on earth
I want this horse to learn.
I've looked the wide world over
In my search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
With trust, I have selected you.
Now will you give him your total love?
Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come
To take him back again?
I know you'll give him tenderness
And love will bloom each day.
And for the happiness you've known
Forever grateful stay.
But should I come and call for him
Much sooner then you'd planned
You'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And someday you'll understand"

I saw the name of this and froze, you've always been so nice and supportive towards me. You've always been so kind and given advice. I've seen the posts you posted for him and this whole thread made me cry. I'm so sorry this happened to you, You and him never deserved to have to part so soon :'( If you need a friend to talk to I'm always willing to listen.

hey, hun, just thought I'd check in and see how you're doing, I know everybody is still a bit concerned. So are okay? do you want a hug? tea? chocolate? those things generally make me feel better.
