Navajo

Well in case y'all were wondering.. my unicorns don't always shit rainbows around our ranch...
Yesterday another horse took his place across the rainbow bridge..
Navajo had been diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, and it was an aggressive cancer...
and the past two weeks, He has looked like he hasn't been feeling good...
Yesterday we had the vet come out to geld Stormy.... and check Navajo.. the vet said it was time, the cancer had spread to his spleen, liver and stomach... and he was retaining fluid..
Tuesday I went out to the horse pasture with a big bag of carrots and none of the other horses came over to me.. Just Navajo.. it was just like they knew I was saying good bye...
I told him I loved him, and I was sorry he was sick... and I explained why I didn't ride him anymore and made peace... When I was walking away.. Kismet came over and just looked at me intently... and I told her I was ok...
Horses know...
I thank God for the beautiful healthy horses I have.. but, I miss Navajo, but I know he is with Romeo and I'll see them again..

Navajo when I first got him

  1. Sorry about your lose. :( It was the right thing to do no matter how bad it hurts the heart. Just knowing that he's with all his buddies who went before him running in knee deep grass and wild flowers in his hair. :)
