It is done

So sorry for the lack of happenings here, I've be lurking and reading your blogs, but I just haven't been up to writing this post.  Last Monday was the day. My dear sweet Mojito went to join a long list of amazing horses in pony heaven.  It was just time, his condition continued to slowly worsen and the nasty ice/mud of winter didn't help. The look in his eye finally told me it was ok, he was ready.  Darn it though, it didn't make it any easier. So in a trip painfully similar to that fateful one in January Sprinklerbandit and I hauled my boy in and said goodbye.  I know in my heart it was the right thing to do, but if I think on it for more than a few seconds the tears flow freely. Daily I miss the sing song greeting of his nicker.  I know he is back to gallivanting across fields with his incredible floating gaits and the worried crease of his brow is gone.
Adding salt to the wound I also said goodbye to my grandma that same Monday.  She was slipping away and gave me a final 'I love you more' and smile before she passed on thanksgiving day. I like to imagine that she is riding on my Mojito as she dreamed of for the years she watched him out her window.

  7. My heart is breaking for you. I can't imagine two such large losses in one week. The image of your grandma riding Mojito made me smile though. I wish there was something I could say to help make you feel better, but really it just takes time. You made the kindest, yet hardest choice we have to make for our pets and I'm very glad you got to be with your grandmother before she passed. *hugs*
