    I am proud to have had a part in this effort, we are such a wonderful community.

    Robby, I have been crying off and on all weekend for you and Gail.

    That is a lovely sentiment you wrote, I am sure that Kate is looking after all our lost loved ones.

    to have been a tiny piece of this. The ad is lovely, thanks so much to those who put it together. Can't wait to see my own printed copy!

    It really is wonderful. I'm so touched to see how people have come together. I'm crying, but I'm happy.

    My favorite line was the one about her waiting for us at the end of the trail.

    Made me cry.

    I got chills reading it - what a perfect tribute to her.

    As to the poster who mentioned Bud. Do you know if she had left in her will that he was to go to someone specifically? I'm just wondering how he got to CA and what he'll be doing there.

    Makes me proud to "know" everyone here. Thanks to the ones who made this happen and helped to put it together.

    I don't believe that Kathy had specified anyone in particular... I think her trainer just took care of finding Bud an appropriate "home for life." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    ROCK!

    It is at times like this, in situations like CactusKate's, that humanity comes to the fore.

    I'm very proud of all of you.

    Kathy had an absolutely wonderful friend and dressage trainer (she was mine when I lived in AZ too [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] who she entrusted with the task of finding Bud the most special of homes. She was blessed to find a lovely couple who understood just what this horse meant to Kathy, and just how special he should always be thought of. From what I understand, they spend more time grooming and feeding him carrots than they do riding him....and they love him to pieces. I am sure Kathy would be very happy he has found such a wonderful home.....
