It was an honor to serve along side this sage and saint of a horse. At 40 years of age Junior has given many rides, calmed nerves, and been a sweet place of refuge for his two legged friends.
His welcome was often accompanied by his nose doing all the sniffs as he took in the essence of his company. His gentleness unsurpassed. His desire to be all that he could be showed up again yesterday as he jiggy jogged into the arena and then very happily joined his friends in the pasture.
The Lord gave us all a special gift through this beautiful creature. As we say our good byes today we know that he will run again in the green pastures and warmth of heaven's splendor.
To experience the pain of loss is also to have known the joy of connection and love.
Lord thank you for sharing Junior with us, for the many lives he has touched throughout his abundant years. We ask that you comfort those who grieve.
Run free sweet boy. Run free.
