Shadow 1986-2008

My dear friend Richard, an equine photographer, lost his horse, Shadow today. I don't know the details, but Shadow was getting up there in age. I know Richard loved him dearly. I found the poem over on Midwest Horse comforting and forwarded it to him. I just wanted to say goodbye to the sweet old gelding that held Richards heart. Goodbye Shadow:-(

The four leggeds touch us very deep. We still light a candle in the rainbow bridge memorial every Monday for Mr Wiggles. It has helped. My heart goes to your friend and when we little the candle on monday I will light for Sadow too.

Some pretty special horses have died in the last few days. That is so sad. Tell you friend, Richard, my thoughts are with him.

I'm sorry for the loss of Richard's 4 legged friend. Sometimes the best of friends don't say anything at all, they're just there constantly giving you love.

Thanks for all the well wishes for Richard. He is a man with a heart of gold and his horses are his family. I know this will be a very difficult time for him and your kind words will mean so much to him.

Hopefully Richard will focus on the good times. It can't stop the hurt but it can make it just a little better...
