Three days ago we lost one of our beloved horses. With very heavy hearts we sadly had to let our lovely girl, Tris, go. Working with the equine hospital we had discovered that she had an inoperable intestinal condition that was not allowing her body to function properly.
This is always the hard part (and hard time) of fully opening our hearts, souls and lives to our pets, including our horses. But this is also the time when we stand bravely beside them and help them to make a peaceful transition to their new journey ahead. This is when we offer them our final act of respect, care and love. This is when we set their needs above our own and do the right thing for them.
In all of our sadness, this is also the time to reflect on the hopeful, happy parts of the lives we share with our animal companions including our Tris. Tris lived out her last many months in the peace and sanctuary of the rescue. She enjoyed devoted care, the companionship of other horses and had been deeply loved, cherished and supported by the volunteers and friends of the rescue.
We count ourselves as being so fortunate in having had the chance to share our lives with this lovely and radiant creature who blessed us with her presence. We will strive to share her radiance as we continue to work to offer horses like her peaceful and happy lives.
Run free, Tris...
