Rainbow Bridge for Calidad

Our friend Nicole lost her beautiful Peruvian horse Calidad today. After a couragous 10 day battle to live... the little filly is gone. Nicole loved her so much and was planning on showing her this coming year.  It saddens my heart to see her hurting from this loss.
Calidad was a gorgeous little three year old horse who's life was far too short.
May God give Nicole strength she needs to cope with this loss. 

Nicole and Calidad - October 9,2010

Rainbow Bridge 

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill, is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run, when their time on the earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next, is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play, till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness, for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed, their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care, until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back, then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met; together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past, the time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart, has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever, and then, side by side, they cross over… together.

In Loving Memory of Nicole's Calidad

May her spirit run free and wild.
