Our destined path of stars collided, my golden horse of a lifetime.
Your conker brown eyes: so tender and deep, Your twinkle toes; your twitching nose; your silken orange skin – each and every inch of your magnificent fabric was sublime: a work of art. A master piece.
Your happy face: ears pricked, walking to meet me at your field gate.
We’d share some sweets, perhaps a glass of wine, bask in the sun. You’d tickle my feet with your velvet pink muzzle: our summer mapped out by fate...
A show man; a best friend; a beautiful Irish gentleman: gentle, graceful and faithful.
You gave me my dreams, now the memories I cherish and to you I’m eternally grateful.
Your broken, snapped lucky head collar from every time you pulled back free – now run free spirit
The feed spread up your blaze, marking the sign of a devoured meal – which no doubt you tipped all over the floor! Mother. Child.
You grazing under the rainbow and me wishing for our future.
Now all I wish for is for you to return back here – with me...
You travelled home with Bow – his guardian – a new team member – and I can only hope he’ll follow in your perfect footsteps.
Look down on us chestnut angel. Keep us safe. Guide us on our way.
I know we will meet again one day – but until then, play with Dixie, (don’t let her boss you around) and stick close by Uncle George, Nanna and Granddad – on the clouds, I will see you peacefully rest and lay.
You will always be loved more than words can describe – our perfect orange, much missed team.
I promise to learn from the life lessons you taught me and hopefully I will make you as proud as you have made me.
I no longer want to shed tears for your death-
Instead I want to fill this empty hole in my heart with: your achievements, your story, our relationship – until my final breath...
RIP Stevey’s Lad...
... until our paths collide again...
