I remember the day you passed away;
Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hooves at rest.
God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best.
Two days after Valentines Day, your birthday and mine, you left this world. I lost you on February 16, 2011, sometime around 2:37 pm.
I miss you so much and I thank you for being my best friend for the years I had you. With great sadness I learned that you had gotten cast in your stall and had torn your ligament in your left hind leg. I am so sorry that I couldn't have helped you even more and I feel so grateful to have known you; but I am so glad that you are pain free now.
Thank you for teaching me how to ride, jump, and handle the biggest rears that you threw at me! Forgive me for the weight you carried on your back - I am losing it in memory of you!
I hope you enjoyed the last peppermint you had on earth because I know you are being spoiled up there at the Rainbow Bridge! Rest easy big guy!
