Like all our animal connections, each one teaches us lessons in life. We form bonds and learn more about ourselves through the patience, and unconditional love found in these relationships.
But as most of us have experienced, whether it was a childhood bird, hamster or even a family dog, that we have to say goodbye and remember the love God’s creature brought into our lives.
"Somewhere… somewhere in time’s own space.
There must be some sweet pastured place.
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow.
Some paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen.
I know great horses live again.”
