It’s never easy…

It’s NEVER easy to say goodbye to a dear friend.

Farm life – the good, the bad and the ugly!

My daughter lost her best friend today, her sweet horse ‘ACoolCat’. A most difficult lesson for a 17-year old. We’re no stranger to death and loss on a farm. It never gets easier. It’s painful. It hurts. There’s no rhyme nor reason. There’s no words to console. Our only comfort is  the sweet memory of the too short life we shared. I like to believe Cat’s running in open green pastures, along with all our barnyard ‘pets’ who have gone before him!

We’ll truly miss you big guy! Let ’em buck!!

P.S. Many have inquired re the cause of Cat’s death. He was well and thriving – a super-charged youngster, only five. We believe he may have suffered a tummy ache (colic) and ‘rolled’ to relieve the ache…suffered a ‘twisted gut’ and died within 24-hours… despite our best efforts.

  1. Jenny, I’m so sorry. Yes, it always hurts.

    I couldn’t agree more that Cat is running in green (warm and sunny) pastures. It can be hard to remember when they’re taken that He loves them even more than we do. But He does.

    One more reason to eagerly anticipate the “renewal of ALL things.” (Mt. 19:8)

    Sweet blessings and comfort to your daughter and you and your family today and always.

  2. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Cat was a beautiful site to behold
    running about in his pasture. God Bless you and yours at this sad time.

  3. …Hello, I just came over via Carole’s Country Store Blog and I read your comment over there about your tragic loss. I just had to come by and send you my sympathy. You’re right, it is never easy and I am so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that he was with you & happy. Even tho’ his time was short you had that time with him, revel in those memories.

    …So beautiful too.
