RIP my old friend

Postby Bigfoot » Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:07 pm

He crossed the river at 11:00 yesterday. Some people live their whole life and never have one, but I had a good one. The Bible doesn't say there will be animals in heaven, but it also doesn't say that there won't. Perhaps some day will meet again, and ride a much greener pasture in search of the newborns. When I had retired him, he went on to teach my children to rope. With a patience I have never seen in an animal. He was a wedding present from me to my wife. They just never got along. Her loss was my gain. A faith friend for 20 odd years. He never quit. In the end it was me that could no longer watch the fight. You will be remembered well. Another may match your speed, but never your heart.

Get in a quite place at dusk and you might be able to hear thundering hooves of a young horse.
