12 June 2009 - A Tribute


I am still really in pain about the decision I had to make with this filly but wanted to do this little tribute for her. She was instantly friendly the minute she saw me and even though she was only with us for half a day she has forever left an impact on me and will have a very special place in my heart.
When I told my friend that she had been born and that she had hints of black pigment which I hoped meant she was not a lethal white I was overjoyed and Michelle immediately named her, without even having seen her. So even though she will not be registered we have named her DBB Blue's Angel, little did we know that within a few hours that is exactly what she would be. She looked so much like her Daddy when he was born it was uncanny.
My friend Lisa came over when I first phoned her to tell her the baby had been born but by the time she had arrived things had deteriorated rapidly and I told her to get photos because there was a good chance this would be our only opportunity. I have very few pictures of me with my horses and I dont think I have any with even one of my 20 odd foals that I have bred and raised so these photos are going to be amongst my most treasured memories. I edited two of them, one with momma, me and baby in it and one with just me and Angel.
She must be an awesome sight running in those green pastures with her long legs and I hope that she and Larry meet up. I know that to most of you this sounds all dramatic and melancholy but this little horse and all of my animals deeply touch my heart and I love them all like my children so it feels to me like I have lost a child.

I have a feeling that the other baby might arrive tonight, don't know why because I cant see any obvious signs but it is just a feeling.
My leg is feeling a bit better. I am still not sleeping well and experiencing a lot of pain at night where the muscles have torn so battle to get any sleep but it is improving so there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Thanks everyone for your messages. ((((Hugs))))) and have a great weekend.

Treasured photos of that precious little DBB Blue's Angel. Brings tears to my eyes. I can only imagine your pain, you have lost a child.

She is indeed a beauty in those lovely green pastures she now enjoys.

Does not sound dramatic, just sounds like an extraordinary women who cares about those around her, even if they are four legged creatures that carry quite a soul themselves! Take care of yourself and thanks for sharing your precious moments with that beautiful creature that graced this world for only a short time! ((((((hugs)))))))) to you as well!

Lori,
I'm so sorry for your loss...what a beautiful little gal she was, and while with you for only a short while, she will be with you in spirit always. My heart goes out to you, and her mother. -Anna.

Don't deny yourself the right to mourn her, she was just as precious as any other creature. I hope you can continue to find some peace knowing she is with Larry. You continue to be in my thoughts.

Such beauty came and blessed you for a short time. I don't think I could cope with this and maybe that is one reason I didn't buy a farm a long time ago. I am sorry for your loss and hope the mother gets through this too. I am sure she feels it like mothers do.

Take care. Cherish the memories.
