2005 - October 9,
This is for Lokki. He was only two years old, but touched our hearts as
well as our souls.
Lokki was born at Harmony Horse Rescue. The first time I saw him, he was
laying in the pasture with his head on a volunteer's lap. I think Lokki was
more like a pet dog then a horse. He would follow you all over the pasture
on your chores. He always knew when I had cookies and he always reminded
me that he wanted one. He also knew when you were feeling down, he would
nudge you as if to say it's okay, I am here now.
About four weeks ago, Lokki
ran into something in the pasture and got a puncture wound. It became infected,
then the infection got into the joint, which isn't good for a horse.
We had to put Lokki down on October 9, 2007. It was so hard to see
him go, but the thought of him suffering every day of his life is a thought
that I couldn't stand. So for now, Lokki, we will stay here and think of
you waiting by the Rainbow Bridge till we get there to be with you.
We love you and miss you.
