goodbye little sister
 
Three days before my 60th birthday (7/29/07) I lost a really good friend. Her name was Blue Spirit but I always called her little sister because that was how she felt to me. I had changed her name from tuffy bar.
She could be a hot pony to mount but once on her she would do any thing for you. Or at lest for me, before I bought her no one would go close to her and she stood alone 24/7 in her paddock.
I didn't work in her area often and because of her name I thought that she was a gilding, guess I could have looked closer. But to make a long story short, the first time her and me were in the arena at the same time she started following me like a puppy.
God I miss you Blue.

Thank you sweetypie16, it is sad and it is getting in the way of me bonding with Safari my new horse. When Blue died the former owner felt so bad that he gave me a beautiful palomino to replace her. I don't think I would have choose her for one reason only, she stands 16.3 hh and when I am on the trail I have to get in and out of the saddle a lot, and it is a little more of a stretch then I like.
I was out to work with her today and we seem to be growing on each other. So as they say "time heals all", not sure I completely agree, but it helps.

Blue was 9 years old and had at lest two foals maybe three. As far as how she died, I'm not sure, the vet made it simple for me and called it twisted gut.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I know how a person feels when they love their animals as though they are not really animals. It brought tears to my eyes to hear this story.

Aww I'm so so sorry Cowboy. :cry: ((Big hugs))

Thank you keithturner and meggymoo. No matter where I go I find horse people to be the most understanding and friendliest.

keithturner 09-15-2007 10:34 AM

You are most welcome cowboy. We have had Troy for a little over a week and we could not bear the loss of him already. He has really found a place in our hearts.
