You have so many wonderful memories Barry.....she gave you such joy and she was such a beautiful girl.
I can't help but tear a bit when I read your post as it's clear you loved her so.....and how your heart aches now with her gone.
I guess that's the price we all pay for the love and satisfaction we get from valued relationships.
She was a lucky horse to have had someone like you to love her so deeply and care for her so thoughtfully.
Everything must end. It's never easy. Peace be with you brother.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
