And We Said Goodbye
Its been two weeks since we said goodbye to Bella, and well, I kinda miss her.
I'll be honest with y'all, I never really bonded with her, but by the time she left us I had really come to appreciate what a nice little horse she was.
She became probably one of the best trail horses I've ever come across. Nothing, and I mean nothing fazed her. You could always depend on her to cross the water, or the bridge, or the ravine, or the whatever when no other horse wanted to.
Saying goodbye to her was bittersweet, to say the least. I know without a doubt, without the slightest bit of doubt, that she has an even better home than Cowboy H and I were giving her.
But still, I can't say that there weren't a few choked up throats when we loaded her into the trailer.
I mean, its not like we were crying or anything. Geez, cum'on guys.
I swear! I didn't shed a single tear.
Okay, okay. I may have sniffled a little bit.
Especially when Cowboy H gave his final goodbye.
