It saddens me to say that as soon as the show is over I have discovered that my angel, my Arabella mare is dying. I'm running to say goodbye to her. His name means "surrender to prayer." She is and always has been a beautiful mare. Our souls and spirits were one. When she suffered, so did I. I will never forget the moments we share: our long walks, we ride together by the throats, or we feed him biscuits. "
"She will always be part of my life. I'm so sad. But I want your pain to end and the gates of heaven open to you. I love you Girl, where do you intend to go?
