February 6, 2009 Jeannie crossed over the Rainbow Bridge to her home in heaven where carrots grow on trees, sugar cubes are mountains, apples float in the sea, grain falls from the sky and the grass is soo green it makes you smile, it is always sunny and Jeannie has returned to her youth and is running around like a little filly and there are many people to groom her for endless hours . I have been told it was a good passing, the vet did his best to get her down slowly and then put her down, they were able to do it at the stables and Jeans owner paid for a truck to pick her body up. For those of you who don't know Jeannie was about 32-35 years old, she was a TB and the love of my life. I have been taking care of Jeannie for about 5 years and well she was my girl. Jeannie had the best personality I swear by it, she was sooo sweet and caring. All she wanted was to be with her "people" to have attention and loves. She had this awsome little nicker that she did when you walked up to her, her whole muzzle would vibrate when she did it lol it was quite adorable! She also would neigh sooo loud when fed time came or her owner came and man you could hear it clear across the barn!! When I would walk her she always would walk behind me and put her nose to my back and when I would brush her she would turn her head around and nicker at me or nudge me as if to say "wanna do my face next pweease!" She wouldnt hurt a fly, honestly she is the type of horse who will go through pain and being scared to make you happy all she lived for was to please you even if it meant she had to walk through that scary puddle for you, she would! God I could go on, I just loved this horse soo much, she was always there for me when I had those bad days, I could talk to her about it and she would listen, she always put a smile on my face. I LOVE you Jean a Bean!!!! Thank You for saving my life! I will See You some day!
I have probably cried an ocean the last few days. Here is a video I made in memory of Jeannie, let me know what you think!
Im sorry! I watched the Vid. OMG She is georgous! So are you!
I have to say. I can't stop crying. Brings memories of Sarah back.
I know she will be with you all throughout your life! I truely belive, over the years, all the bad things that has happend to me, Sarah has kept from getting worse.
All I've been through. And I truely belive she has prevented the worst!
I love you both. *HUGS*
-"Sadly, she is no more. But her grave will bring new life"
Oh, honey. ((((HUGS)))) I feel your pain. I know it hurts but just remember that she is up in heaven now with other colts to play with and kids to spoil. She will be waiting for you in all her youthful glory when you get up there too.
She so pretty. I know she has to be happier. It hurts I know. A horse from my barn who I have known sence I have been there (14 years) died a few weeks ago. When I was little and my sister didnt want me to ride with her she would throw me up on her. She was so sweet to me. I was there the day the BO got her and I was there the day she died in my arms. She put her head in my lap a few hours before and I sat there whispering to her.
Aww, sweetie ... I am so sorry. Jeannie lived a long, full life... longer than a lot of horses. I'm so glad she got to spend 5 wonderful years with you. She was very much loved and will always be in your heart.
Thanks everyone. I truely miss her. I still can't believe she is gone, I can't go and pet her, touch her face, kiss her, brush her, its just really really hard. I don't think I will ever get over it but I know in time it will get a little better...i hope. I got to see some pictures of Jean as a youngin and God she was absolutely gorgeous!!! She was a great jumper too. When I get copies of her I will post them. The fact that they put another horse in her stall not 24 hours after she was gone kinda made it worse for me, that horse does not deserve her stall!
Thanks, I am trying, its hard. I havent been thinking much of Jeannie, trying to move on but everywhere I look there is something that reminds me of her. Im a sensitive person and tend to take everything to heart (its a flaw I have!) but I saw putting a new horse in her stall offensive especially since the girl whos horse is there was like "guess what? Lily got a new stall, its Jeannies old one!" but she said it soo cheerful, it kind of hurt me, I can't explain it really, I know I sound stupid but its my feelings what am I going to do? Lol I have just stopped paying attention to that horse/stall. Hopefully I will have pics of Jeannie as a young bean tomorrow!!!
