Today a very special horse was laid to rest. In making a very difficult decision my friend set her horse free from pain and gave him the wings he needed to go find a special little girl in heaven who had been dreaming of a horse of her own.
Rafiki was and is one of the sweetest Arabian horses I have ever had the pleasure to know. He used to take my friend through barrel patterns winning so many awards to being the first mount of many kids in the local 4H club.
He touched so many hearts and made so many people happy. It's going to be really hard going to my friend's house and not being able to visit my Fiki Man, but he is now free from pain and making a little girl in heaven very happy.
RIP Rafiki, you were the sweetest horse that ever walked the planet. We all love you and will miss you forever.
Here is a song for Rafiki
Below are a few pictures I took just one week ago. I'm so glad we took these pictures, so many memories to every one of them. The last one is my favorite....it's my friend kissing Rafiki in the sunset.
