I remember our first meeting at the Pretty Penny Ranch 6 years ago, The people who had sold you to my good friend Dee, had said you had major issues with other horses and people and oh by the way--NEVER ever put you in a trailer with any other horse. They had painted a picture of you as if you were a Diabolo. Dee saw straight through their misguided thoughts. She saw an incredible well talented, guardian angel, overfollowing with unconditional love. You weren't a diabolo,you were a "DIVA" with a personality plus.
From the first moment you came to stay with us, you stuck your head inside Greg's truck window-as if to say "HELLO" I'm here to spend the rest of my life with you!!! I will brighten every moment of everyday , I will turn all your frowns upside down,I will show you what life is about !!!! And show us you did. You were always happy and full of spirit and energy!
Saydee you loved your turnout time. I'd turn you out in the arena or back pasture and you looked like the wildest rodeo horse ever! People would see you and say"You ride that horse? You're crazy,she looks like a keg of dynamite!"
Saydee, you only had the best of everything while you were with us. We treated you like the Diva you were. The best stall, blankets,legs wrapped and protected,the best bedding etc. But the one thing I've never done before,with any other horse is share you only with my daughter Samantha. The only ones allowed to ride you were Samantha and I. Samantha knew you the best,she understood you and it made my Heart happy to see the both of you together. So we can say we never had a bad day or a bad ride when we were with you!!
I will not say GOODBYE, because you have not gone! You will forever be with me. I will use what you taught me-Unconditional Love-Free Spirit-Happiness in all situations-And yes girl,you showed me what life is about.
