In a Blink of The Eye

I got some pretty bad news today about a friend of mine.  This past week her mare was going sick, but nothing too serious.  We were planning to go back to Machesis today.  I had texted the BO to see when we were heading out and she told me this morning that the trip was cancelled because our friend had lost her mare. 

It's a huge reminder of how fast things can change, not only with our equine partners, but in life in general.  I lost my first horse 10 months ago and it was completely out of the blue.  These moments change how we think and feel about so many different aspects of life.  I know with my own situation, I was a wreck for weeks, and the smallest thing can still bring me to tears.

As one of the biggest TB blogs out there always closes with, be sure to hug your horses.  But, I'm going to add to that today.  Be sure to hug your horses since you don't know how long you'll have them for. 

You were an incredible mare and will be missed terribly.  We know you're in that great field of green pastures and I'm sure your partner cannot wait to see you again.
