Until We Meet Again

Ten days ago I lost a huge piece of my heart.

I still don’t have words for how much I will miss this sweet mare. I am so grateful that I had her in my life the last 3 years and will carry her in my heart forever. Hug your horses extra tight. We don’t get nearly enough time with them.

In honor of Annie I am going to share some photos of my favorite memories and adventures with her.

PSA: save your pictures… back them up… back them up again.

“’Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here.” – Train

    I am so terribly sorry. It’s hard to lose them, but especially so when they are young and healthy on the outside. Big hugs for you and yours.

    So so sorry, realize this, you gave her a wonderful life and were the best owner she could have had!! Remember the good times!! I am hopeful another fire breathing dragon is waiting for you around the corner. It won’t be the same I realize but I am looking forward to following your adventures no matter what. Hugs to all who knew Annie. Those photos are breathtaking!!
