    Joe and Gracie

    "It was a freak accident."
    I'm hearing but not understanding.
    How could something like this happen to my Gracie?

    "It wasn't his fault, he tripped, all horses do it."
    Joe's beautiful black head snaps to my mind's eye.
    How could something like tripping happen to my Joe?

    These questions soar in my brain, how could?, how could?

    It was a winter day
    Gracie and Joe went on a trail ride in the snow
    They knew the way,
    They knew everything about the trail there was to know.

    Everything was fine
    Steady as could be their hearts thudded as one
    They didn't know it was the end of the line
    No one knew what was to come.

    It was s hill they had traveled many a time
    Nothing had ever gone askew
    Before it had been such a steady climb
    It was time God knew.

    Down they fell
    A crack and scream could be heard
    This was their farewell
    A tragedy had occurred.

    Sirens filled the once still air
    The once calm hill was now a flurry of hurried bodies
    A mother and father were crouched in prayer
    The atmosphere carried everyone's anxieties.

    At the hospital they arrive
    Their baby was dying
    They pray she will stay alive
    In their hearts they knew she was trying.

    At the vet's the word wasn't good
    Poor Joe was broken
    While at one time he stood
    His end had finally been spoken.

    8:30am Joe takes his last breath
    My Gracie isn't improving
    All around us is death
    My Gracie is losing.

    Evening is upon us and Gracie is pulled from Earth
    Now she and my Joe are not to be seen
    About us is no mirth
    My Gracie died just before she hit fourteen.

    Oh my gosh! Is that a true story that happened to your daughter?
    I am almost in tears, that was so sad. :( You just never know I guess.

    No not my daughter. Not quite there in my life yet.

    It was my second cousin. She and I trained Joe together. She bought him as a wreck and we brought him along as a team. He was an amazing horse, as was Gracie. She was my best friend. :( And yes... it is true. :(

    OMG! This sounds just like Jessica Forsyth, sorta. Her horse didn't die but it was a freak accident. She was also 14 and trained her horse, Boomer. RIP Gracie and Jess
