The two of us have always
been a team - his loud nickers of hello in the morning,
his deep voice as he talked to his herdlet of mares, his inquisitive look
with those huge, lipid eyes, those tiny hooked ears that only a beautiful
stallion can have, his proud carriage and powerful trot with his mane and
tail flowing in the wind, his inquisitive nature and bold attitude, his soft
muzzle touching my hand as he gently took his peppermint, his guarded stance
as he gazed proudly at his foals. These are only a few of the things I will
miss every day for the rest of my life.
Above Command went to
visit his favorite mares who have gone before him. He had a serious injury
from a fall and though he tried valiantly to recover, it was not meant to
be. His very special friend, Blueberry Tart, was waiting for him as he crossed
the bridge - of that I have no doubt. My heart is breaking, but I know he would encourage me to move on, just
as he has done for the almost 20 years he has shared our lives.
Be at peace
my big boy - the star on your forehead the shape of my logo will light up
the sky with it's brilliance tonight.
