Well today I had to say goodbye to a very, very special old friend.
My horse Gemini that I have had and loved for 40 years passed away during the night. We were blessed to have had her for that long, as horses do not live to be that age. She was such a special horse, so kind and gentle. She greeted me with a nicker every morning when I went in the barn, but this morning it broke my heart to find her gone. We almost lost her 4 years ago, but with extra care and love she pulled through. She loved eating her apples every day and her special friend Sylvester the cat used to like to sleep on her back in the winter to stay warm.
Rest in Peace my friend.
We will always love and remember you.
The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
