It's been 1 year since we lost Sandy ~ Always remembered ♥

Sandy was a stock horse mare who came to me in very poor condition. Sadly she had a tumor in her nose that grew so very fast. She was with me for 5 days before being put to sleep. 5 days wasn't even enough time for her to settle in but in that 5 days I discovered a sweet mare, so loving and trusting. I will always remember Sandy, she will live in my heart until my last breath.

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
when their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
is a place where beloved creatures find rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
til The Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed.
Their bodies have healed with strength imbued.

They trot through the grass without even a care,
til one day they whinny and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes sharp and alert.
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the herd.

For just at that second, there's no room for remorse.
As they see each horse.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart
has turned to joy once more in each heart.
They nuzzle with a love that will last forever.
And then, side-by-side, they cross over together.
