I wrote a Hub several weeks ago about my horse Ben and how he gave his life for me (no I'm not self promoting). That accident happened one year ago today. Pray (or take a moment of silence) that I can find the exact spot where he passed to so I place the cross we built from our barn wood. No one who would know seems to be responding.
I salute you for your story about Ben and I grieve with you for your loss. My moment of silence starts now...
Unable to find his passing spot. Joe and I decided it best to take Monte out to Ben's burial spot and place the cross there. There was a silence in the cold air and I know Monte knew what was going on and so did Jack and Ty. And, of course when I put Monte back in the pasture, Ty, the friesian was there to give me a kiss as Jack looked on. Monte stood still in the pasture for awhile and looked out over the field but then moved with the herd. I think we made the right choice.
Monte and Ben were inseparable. Telling him of the accident was one of the hardest conversations I think I've ever had. Monte is comforted by Ty, the new friesian in our herd.
Sorry to hear about your loss, even if it was a year ago. I'll give my moment of silence for Ben as well.
Thanks all for your moments of silence. I appreciate all of you for it.
Thanks to Ben...Haven't read the story...but I can appreciate the impact that this magnificient animal had on you. I don't think I can read your story...already from what you just said in your opening post.
Here's my couple of moments of silence to manificent "Ben"...Rest in Peace...Wonderful animal!
I'll have to read that story myself. I am truly sorry for your loss, Stimp. *HUGS*
Don't tell me you traded in your three cats for a lion now, Crazdwriter!
lmao Anti no I didn't trade my kitties for the lion. the lion came home with me from the zoo and my kitties love him
Remind me not to ever get you angry at me.
Stimp, sending kindest thoughts to you on this somber anniversary. So sorry for your loss. I hope there are many happy memories that accompany this anniversary, as well.
We chose to put the cross on his burial spot so we can see it and maintain it. AND to top off the week, found my goat deceased on that very spot yesterday.....the YARD GOAT. We're bummed.
For whatever reason, Goaty is gone to make room for us to teach our lessons to another baby somewhere else who needs us. Remember the Grandest Foal poem? I have to live by that now....is time was short but we taught him what he needed to learn here. I'm good with that. time to teach another.....
Thanks for your concern. I do truly appreciate it!!!!!

Yup. I was just over there on the old stomping grounds and there was a blue box. I've taken a screen shot and saved it for a momento. Sorry to see the old wagering about when the next blue box will drop come to an end.
