Thunder Bill <3

I can't believe he's gone... I will walk out into that pasture and no horse will come running up to greet me...

Thunder Bill was a horse that I rode at the ranch I work at. He was that special horse that made my heart flutter everytime I got on him. He was by no means the "perfect" horse, but he was perfect for me. The owner of the ranch cut off the hair of his tail and gave me a section of it. I braided it today... but now I will dread going back because he won't be there... I have Montana, but she can never get close to that feeling I felt for Bill.

Rest in Peace my sweet, sweet baby.

RIP Thunder Bill... I will never love another as I have loved you. <3
I go where the sound of thunder is.

I'm sorry for your loss. He was a handsome boy. What happened to him if you don't mind me asking?

Being horseless is the pits!!

They think he twisted his gut. He was going on 25 years old. <3 I'll miss my old man.

Life is loss. IN many ways. How nice that this horse was so loved by you. How sad it's time to move on. Thank you for sharing the photos, especially of you and him.

My condolences on your loss.

I would like to share a poem I wrote with you.

They say heaven is lovely and peaceful
Where good little boys and girls go
But Iíll tell you a secret I found out
That everyone ought to know.

There are dogs and thereís cats and thereís others
Equines and bovines and more
Thereís a heaven just filled with companions
That you knew on earth, back there before.

Weíve all crossed that bridge made of rainbows
And the hurt and the aches are all gone
We can gallop across verdant pastures
And ecstatically roll on the lawn!

I know youíve been missing me badly
And youíre feeling alone and so blue
So, yes Mistress, there are horses in heaven
Because Iím up here just waiting for you.
