Default Rollie, the most amazing horse ever

So yesterday at work I found out my old horse died this summer!
I gave him away to a family with 6 kids because I couldn't give him the attention he needed. I've had him since I was 8.
Prayed 2 years straight for a horse and along came Rollie... I forgot to specify what size I wanted
He came from an originally abused farm. We think the original owners pulled him by his ears because even after 8 years he never let me touch them. After that, he was abused in his other home. a miniature horse farm. They would bite him and kick him, and he had to be separated. Finally I went to visit and fell in love with him. They gave him to me just before Christmas.
He couldn't be touched really, when I first saw him I was told I was the first person he ever licked-I know, I probably just had sweaty hands, but I don't care...
I had him for over 8 years, he helped me through everything, and was so adorable... 2 summers ago I knew I wasn't being fair to him. I had to work, and even in my free time I just wasn't doing what I should've. So I did the hardest thing I've had to do so far, I gave him away. We were friends with the family, and the kids were crazy about horses. After 2 days of having him, one of the girls was already riding him!! (I'd only sat on him once) I KNOW he was with the best family he could be. yesterday at work I mentioned him to my mom, and she told me she found out he died. She was only told a month ago, but it was over the summer. I started bawling, but had to finish work. Today I went for a bit but couldn't handle it. I had to go home... I still keep crying, wishing I visited him but didn't know if I could handle it before.
Anyway, RIP, to the most incredible horse ever! I miss you :'(

Gosh, I am in the process of trying to find a home for my gelding. I am so scared! I have had him for 10 years and he is my heart. I know if I found out he had passed I would be devastated! I am so sorry!

Default An Ode to Rollie

GOD LOOKED AT THE LITTLE ANGEL
STANDING BY HIS SIDE,
AND SMILED AS HE WHISPERED
YOU NEED A HORSE TO RIDE

SO HE LOOKED THE WHOLE WORLD OVER
FOR ONE HE TRUSTED DEAR
BUT TO OUR UTMOST SORROW
THE ONE HE CHOSE WAS HERE

WHERE GOD TOOK THIS PRECIOUS HORSE
THERE ARE PASTURES FREE TO ROAM
AND ON THE WINGS OF ANGELS
HE TOOK THIS GREAT HORSE HOME

NOW ON HIS BACK SITS PROUDLY
A LITTLE ANGEL STRONG AND TRUE
AS THEY RACE THE WINDS OF HEAVEN
JUST WATCHING OVER YOU.

OH MY! That made me cry! My gelding went to his new home today. I have such mixed emotions! So happy for him and his new owner on their new adventure together, relieved he is in safe hands, yet feel like I am in mourning.

Default Kindness to Rollie

I believe that the above poem about the little angel and horse, was originally written by Jenn McGowan 2001---in remembrance to UNIQUE CONCLUSION by Peterson Quarter Horses. (Many internet searches indicate "Author Unknown").

Sawyersmomma---I just wanted to give you a big hug for giving Rollie all those many years of love and kindness. HerdingStdPoodle
