    I just miss her so much already. By this time of morning I would have already gone out and gave her hay and checked the water and spent some time with her. Feels so off beat. Feels so lacking. She was my soulmate in a horse. Everything just hurts. And when I said goodbye, she was selfless as always and pulled me in for one last long hug. I know it's what was best for her and that she isn't hurting or suffering anymore. I know its selfish of me to wish it wasn't so. But I miss her so much. I loved her and she loved me.

    splinter. You. It's hard. I feel so numb and there is a fog over me. I have zero motivation. We put a deposit on a buckskin gelding and I've considered backing out. That's me being selfish and giving up. I'm not programmed for that so of course he will join our much smaller herd. It's going to take time. NB was a big comfort to me a little bit ago. He sensed my inner turmoil and nuzzled me and loved on me and I loved on him. He misses Sully and I miss them both.

    I cant thank yall enough for being here for me.

    Words cannot express how sorry I am for you and Rose. I know what she meant to you. There is a flip side to that coin, you meant a lot to her. She was your heart horse, but you were her hero, you were her love, you were there for her when she needed you most. I grieve with you.
