my hansom lad is no longer amongst us


Jasper 1993-2008 'Legend'
i write this with stream after stream of tears rolling down my face.

i went to the yard this morning nice and early only to discover my horse slumped again a stable door, he had died during the night, i do not know why, as he was fine last night he was just begining to kick the cellultius, all i could do was scream over and over and over and over again as there was no-one i could call i knew he was already dead, he lay there cold with his eyes open, i lay against him for 15 mins or so crying and weephing untill OH and YO's and liveries came rushing down. i could not bear to leave him.
i miss him already even though it doesnt really feel like he is gone, i have never ever known pain like this before. All i want is my boy

i am not sure what to do with myself at the moment as i feel i have been robbed, i loved my horse more than life its self as he was my world, my soul, my reason for being.

i love you boy, run free my angel,

I'm so very sorry to hear this. Devastated must be a real understatement. I hope you can find out what happened to him and why he died like that.It must have been a real shock to discover him dead in his stable.Huge hugs to you. I hope you have alot of people around you to help you deal with what has happened.
