Lady O Lena

Here are a few pics I have of Lady, that I took of her last Spring. I thought I would put this up for Jess and I added a poem I found. I know she, Lady, was very loved by Jess.....

"Don't Cry for the Horses
Look up into heaven,You'll see them above. The horses we lost, The horses we loved. Manes and tails flowing, As they gallop through time, They were never yours. They were never mine. Don't cry for the horses, They'll be back some day. When our time is gone, They will show us the way.
Do you hear that soft nicker? Close to your ear? Don't cry for the horses, Love the ones that are here.
Don’t cry for the horses, That life has set free. A million white horses, Forever to be.
Don’t cry for the horses, Now in God’s hands. As they dance and they prance, To a Heavenly band.
They were ours as a gift, But never to keep, As they close their eyes Forever to sleep.
Their spirits unbound, On silver wings they fly. A million white horses, Against the blue sky

Thanks Callie. I should of waited until I got home to read this. It made me cry. I really did love that old mare.

It's so special how you two look out for each other. I"m sure it's especially helpful during such a sad time.

It is, we have been friends for over 30 years. I printed out the picture of Lady grazing. I think most of my pictures of her include Cash. She seems so content in that picture.

I love that poem! My friend's horse recenlty died, and we have all cried and cried. I think this will help her.

Hi Callie,
Sorry to add this to the day, but stop by when you get a chance and pick up something I have for you.
