    I will say a litle prayer for you and your special boy. He is galloping in heaven with my mare Beauty and Penny and Velvet and George.

    If you can't beat 'em, try harder. And God Bless America my home sweet home!

    I am so sorry for your loss. From what I saw, Seger was a beautiful boy. I know paying for all costs must have been tough on you and you are a good kid to have taken so much on.

    I am very sorry that at such a young age you had to go through something as sad as this. But I know my little mare Suzy who we had to put down a few weeks ago was waiting up on the Rainbow Bridge for a tall handsome horse to escort her across. I am sure she will love your handsome seger.

    only you would notice that....

    well, for my 700th post i will let y'all in about some info you may not know about Seger....

    He was sired by Supron wh i have heard was great but never got to see, out of a beauty of a bay mare named Cherry Wouldn't.

    His registerd name was Cherry Uppers, and while he did race he never won.

    just some tidbits of info.....

    InGate>> thank you.....

    I bet as you looked outside at the stars tonight you saw Pegasus rising. ( looks like a large box) Fall is such a glorious time for stars.

    Wish I had arms long enough to reach you.

    M-J,
    Times like this are so very hard and I suck at knowing what to say in these moments. Somehow "Sorry" doesn't seem to be enough.

    So, I have this poem that I got from a friend a long time ago during similar circumstances. It made me feel better and I every once and a while I find the need to share it with those who could use a little perspective...

    I hope it will make you feel better too.


    For A Little While

    I'll lend you for a little while
    my grandest foal, he said.
    For you to love while she's alive,
    and morn for when she's dead.

    It may be one or twenty years,
    or days or months, you see.
    But, will you, till I take her back
    take care of her for me?

    She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
    and should her stay be brief
    you'll have treasured memories
    as solace for your grief.

    I cannot promise she will stay,
    since all from earth return.
    But, there are lessons taught on earth
    I want this foal to learn.

    I've looked the wide world over
    in my search for teachers true.
    And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
    with trust I have selected you.

    Now will you give her your total love?
    Nor think the labor vain,
    nor hate me when I come
    to take her back again?

    I know you'll give her tenderness
    and love will bloom each day.
    And for the happiness you've known
    forever-grateful stay.

    But should I come and call for her
    much sooner than you'd planned
    you'll brave the bitter grief that comes
    and someday you'll understand.

    By unknown author

    I'm so sorry MJ. Hang in there. It will hurt for a while. But it will get better. And I'll bet you have lots of happy Seger memories.

    Hard to find the words to express my concern for you. Just know that we all care about you, and that, if you need to talk, I, and I am sure many others, will be willing to listen. My email is listed.

    I can say that I can relate very well, having had to lost three of my own in just two years, at least you know that Seger was loved until he had to leave you ... and you were there for him until the last and now he is playing and grazing in the fields among the stars with my Lacy, Addy and Cece. I will give all my horses a big hug for Seger tonight... don't think that tears will show weakness, have a good cry and give Thunder a big hug, Thunder will understand I find they always do! Take care M_J

    to hear about your loss.
    It's always devastating to lose a companion.
    At least you know thatyou did the right thing by your horse at the end
