You were the best thing that ever happened to me. From the first time I saw your big brown eyes, and spotted muzzle, I knew I was in love. You were my baby, my best friend, and now youre my angel. I love you so much, and I never wanted to say goodbye to you. It was so hard little man, when you looked up at me and your other mommy Janay, we knew that it was the end. But you were so brave, so strong. You looked up to us as if to say Mommy I love you, its time to let me know. How could I tell you that you were dieing, how could I tell you that I wouldnt be by in the morning, how could I say that I couldnt bring you home to your buddy Tinker. I couldnt. All I could do was kiss your soft velvet nose and tell you how much I loved you, and that I would never forget you my baby. You were so sick Smokey boy, you were so loyal to me and Janay, but your body failed you, and I knew that you were to loving to ever leave us on your own, so I helped you. I gave you the best gift I could, what you truly deserved. You fought through complete renal failure, through anemia, through founder, your red blood destroyed themselves, but still you held on. We knew things were grim but still we held out hope. But when you coliced I knew it was the end, and that I had to let you go. So on February 25th, 2007, at 9:30 am, thats what I did, I let you go.
My dear Smokey, when we set out to look for a companion for out quarter horse Tinker, thats all we thought we would find. Just a companion animal, but we got so much more. We came upon the cutest little miniature horse in the whole world, and that little horse was you. You and Tinker became best friends, and each day our love grew more and more. I will never forget how fast you ran, or how high you jumped, or even what a great escape artist you were. I will hold the memories of our days together so close to my heart and I know your Janay mommy will do the same. Those trail rides to the meadow, where we would sit and laugh, and you would beg and beg until Janay gave you a sip of her ice tea. I will never forget our happy moments, and all the fun we had together. How could I. After all you were one giant sweetheart. You might have been small on the outside, but I never met an animal with a bigger heart than you.
Its hard without you. I have a habit of always cutting apples into two piles, but now I only need one. Your Tinker boy still looks for you little Mo-mo. I think he misses you as much as we do. Things arent the same without you, even though if let a huge whole in my heart when I left you, the love I will always feel, is worth so much more. I would have loved and lost you, than to never of have known you at all. I know your watching over us each day, and one day I hope we can all be together again. Together forever, where its always a warm summer day, where we can ride to the meadow, lay on the grass, and drink as much ice tea as we want. All my love to you my beloved baby. Ill see you again one day.
Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be free,
To roam the gorge and mountain tops with no-one chasing me,
I’ve longed to travel to a place that nature holds to heart,
And live a life of freedom that no-one can tear apart.
To run along the beaches and leave hoof prints in the sand,
And feel the water splashing, oh now wouldn’t that be grand,
To munch the fresh new pasture as it breaks through natures soil,
Or even have my ears scratched by a friend forever loyal.
But time is running out and I feel darkness has awoke,
To cover all the hope and all the dreams of which I’ve spoke,
I feel him walk toward me with that needle in his hand,
I close my eyes forever, Leaving hoof prints in the sand.
