We said good-bye to our beloved Buster Brown today, June 13, 2014.
Have fun playing with Kelsey until we see you again.  You have left a huge hole in our hearts dear boy!

I remember the day you stole a piece of my heart,with a wag of your tail, and a kiss, and a sweet little bark.I didnt know then how precious our Journey would be,
and that I needed you just as much as you needed me. I wouldnt trade one minute of memories we've made.
If only God gave us the gift of unlimited days. But life times are short and we made the best of the best.And as we part tomorrow can I make one last request,
wont you meet me at the gate, when I reach the other side, Oh I would love to see your face,
the very moment I arrive, and you can walk me into Heaven to where my Lord awaits, when your sitting around his throne,
and you see me coming home, wont you meet me at the gate.The future without you I knew would eventually come,
guess I wasnt prepared for my world to be so quite undone. Goodbyes are not easy, but this is what I am going to do, when
I leave this world Buster I'll be watching for you.
So wont you meet me at the gate, when I reach the other side I would love to see your face the moment I can walk me into Heaven to where my lord awaits.

We had to say good-bye to our beautiful Kelsey - June 28, 2012
Cannot wait to see her again at the Rainbow Bridge.

It was with great sadness that we had to say good-bye to our
dear little Dorie on March 6, 2009.  She was only three years old.
Dorie taught us many lessons in her short life, but the main one was to
always try your hardest and no matter how bad things may seem, there
is always a bright side.  We are so happy to know that God has given her
a brand new, beautiful horse body that works perfectly, and we know she has wings.
We will see you, again, Dorie.  And most of all.......we love you.....take good care of her Granny and Pop!

A dear old friend, Rio, came back to live with us.
We were so lucky to have him back and he spent his
last days with us.  Thank you to Denise Capps, our wonderful
farrier and friend, for bringing him back into our lives!
What a precious gift you gave to us.

Rio passed away on February 9, 2007 at the age of 21.
He died during his morning feeding happily munching on his grain.
Rio is buried on our ranch in a special place and wildflowers were planted on his grave in the Spring.
Rest easy, old friend.  We will see you again.  I can't wait to go for a ride in heaven!
You can show me all the great places you have found in heaven while we have been apart.
Our hearts still ache so much as we are missing you and love you so much.
You were one of those once in a lifetime horses!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the one's who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
(Thank you to Denise Capps, my dear friend, for sending this to me)

In Memoriam - On August 2, 2005, we lost our beautiful little girl, Gabby.
We will miss you more than you will know........We will meet with you
again, at the Rainbow Bridge.

Wendy crossed the rainbow bridge on July 25, 2008.
Even though we only had her two short years, she was and will always
be our family.  We will see you, again, girl.

Dear Bonnie and Larry Shearin....
We are so sorry for your loss of Q.  We know how much you loved him.
You will meet again at the Rainbow bridge.
Love, Rick and Cindy Coffman

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or, "that's a lot of money for "just a horse".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a horse."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a horse," but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse,' and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise,"
or "just a promise."
Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "
Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away.
 I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman/man."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a horse" just smile, because they "just" don't understand.
