Farewell BR

I was 31 years old when BR was foaled on February 12, 1986. Truly a lifetime ago. He died this Thursday, September 23, 2021. I am now 64 years old. He was 33 years old when he died. A good long life for a miniature horse. A good long life for the both of us.

What does one say about a good old horse? Who would ever understand except those that have had one in their lives? Or any dear animal for that matter for any length of time? Animal owners are a different breed of folks. The type of folks that can not imagine their lives without an animal in it. Forget the dirt, hair, and all the mess involved with animal ownership. We love our animals way too much it seems. And yet “for people like us”, as my dearest friend says, “animals are a beautiful place…God is good.”

So just what do those of us who love our animals say when one dies? I am a photographer, so for me, photos say it all. So here, please enjoy the good life of a grand horse I was blessed to have in my life for many, many years.

  1. So sorry for your loss. From the photos he was a loved horse and returned it to everyone that he came in contact with. ❤💔

    • Thank you, Diane. He lived a good long life and brought joy to many folks. It was a grand ride. I would be selfish to ask for anymore…

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. My husband and I were recently talking about how losing a pet can be as hard as losing a close family member. It just plain hurts! Sending you a big hug.

    • Thank you kindly, Ruth. It is hard to be sure. We have lost our mini horse, BR, and our two great farm dogs all in the past 15 months. 😢 But we have been blessed with our new puppy, HoneyPie! She has been a gift.❤️
