Those who left hoof-prints on our hearts
I have seen many times a memorial page on several websites over the years, but I never expected that I would have one of my own, let alone so soon. But sadly the day has come. On this page you will find those who came into our lives, touched our hearts and then crossed over the
God looked around his pastures,
and he found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth,
and saw your tired face.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Be well on earth again.
He saw the trails were getting rough
And the hills hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered,
"Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
For a part of us went with you,
The day God let you home.
The one who started it all.. The one who captured our hearts and fueled our love for this breed.
Star colicked on us Wednesday night, vet started her on banamine.. Mom, dad and Courtney kept a close eye on her throughout the night and day. She didn't seem to get worse, but wasn't getting better. Vet showed up at 6 pm and Star had gone into shock and was unable to move her back legs. She said we had two options: surgery or put her down. She advised my parents to put her down as she felt with the onset of shock, Star's intestines had twisted too badly and did not think that Star would make it off the surgery table even if we tried. So they made the decision to end her pain.
I didn't get to say good-bye which is the hardest part...

I still can't believe she's gone. She was in our lives for only a short week, yet she captured our hearts the moment we met her. I'm still confused on what happened and how it could have happened to such a sweet mare. We truly believe she lived long enough to bring her filly Misty into the world, leaving us a little piece of her before crossing the
Thank you Fantom for your gorgeous filly and may you forever rest in peace.

We lost Lexi totally unexpectedly on August 2nd. We're still in shock as we do not know what happened. She was fine the morning of the first, we went into town for a couple hours and came home to her ill. Even with the help of the vets and students at OSU we were unable to figure out what was wrong and she died in route to OSU Columbus.
Though the time we had with her was short, I will never forget her sweet disposition and am thankful for the time she was in our lives. She left behind her 3 month old colt

I had such high hopes for this beautiful, talented young mare. Unfortunately I lost her unexpectedly to a freak stall accident. My heart is broken, I'm devastated and at a loss for words as I don't understand how or why.. Why was such a young, mare with so much promise, potential, hope and life was taken so soon?..
Goodbye my beautiful girl..
