I still miss him



I know it won't hurt forever.

It was April. I was sitting at the table in Mom's dining room, admiring the view, thinking how much I love looking at fields and fences and trees; that I want to look out and see that every day.

And then Champ sauntered into the picture.

And I thought, THAT I could look at every day.

Well, I won't be looking at him every day. But I will, soon I hope, be facing a view like that. It won't be Champ that I admire from my house. It will be another horse. And I'll love to look at him too.

I know it.

Isn't it interesting how their loss continues to be felt, an emptiness, for so long after they leave us? It's the mark of a good horse and a wonderful connection that it happens. I don't ache for every horse I've lost, just the really special ones.

I ran across some pictures of Chico the other day and that old, familiar ache was back - just like that.

Thank you for sharing that Cindy, honestly. It does help. It's different with horses. They're like part of our identity.

I think a lot about how those pictures were taken. When I took the view shot, I was thinking that it would be nice to blog it, and then of course when the King walked into the frame, that made it better! I never did get around to showing them, and then he was gone a few months after that, and I couldn't bring myself to post it.

So I didn't show you in the order I took them.

And I mean it. There WILL be another good horse in my very near future.

Oh, Heidi..I know how much you miss him. I'll never forget that phone call.
I know how you feel, and it does get better. I still miss my Poodle, but with Ruby, I ache a little less. Soon, you'll have another prince to share your life with, and you'll make new memories with him....

I can only imagine...

I think you did show the pictures in PERFECT order.

Heidi the Hick said...

Dilling, You do know how I feel and I thank you for understanding.

Biddie, you've had so many great critters in your life and Poodle was definitely special. You're absolutely right- the ache is a little less with somebody new to cuddle. I like that you thought of a Prince- because Champ really was the King. Yeah, I can look forward to new memories with my Prince. Thank you.

Marni- thanks. Things do change, eh? Everything's gonna be alright...
