I had hoped that this would not be the final time, but so it was.
According to what you have written, you really got "your money's worth" from that horse! I mean, that you got way more of the good than the bad, and that horse lived the best life possible, and completed it well. The pain must be fierce, but so was the love.
Hugs, sister.

So sorry for your loss. It sounds as if you gave him a wonderful life and he returned the favour

What a beautiful way to celebrate his life and pass on his legacy to the next generation! I am sorry for your loss, it sounds like Hondo had an incredible life. You won't ever forget all of the things he did for you, and I am sure he never forgot all of the things you did for him.

The only view I want to see is the landscape between my horse's ears <3

What a wonderful horse he must have been - every girl's dream horse to be sure. I so love the story of your 18th birthday, and you're sure to remember that with happiness the rest of your days. What a good, full, long life he led and gave with all his heart - your heart horse. Tears falling for you, as I can only imagine your pain, but smiles for your many years of joy. God Bless :)
