Ag In the Bible – Horses in Heaven

February 12, 2012

It’s been a rough day here – after a very cool cowboy church, we found Princess (our 6th place national doe, due next week with her first litter) near dead in her cage.

There was a song Lawrence Shaul played and this video was referenced to share.

Last week I saw news that the horse that carried Stacy Westfall to the national spotlight, was put down after an injury in her stall.

There’s an awesome stable in heaven – I know some of the ones I’ve had. Joe. Stars. Sierra.

Many moons ago I was riding Sierra through a forested area in western Washington. An Appaloosa mare who was skin and bones when I got her, she’d become a trusted mount. We’d approached a log and as I asked her to step over it she hesitated. I pressed her on saying “where’s your faith?” and a voice said “where’s yours?” There was no one around, but as Sierra stepped over her fear I knew we could get through ours too.

Those green fields are a blessing…and look forward to those rides in Heaven.

    Sigh. Death is part of life. But you certainly have had your share lately, haven’t you?

      It’s always tough when the weather changes drastically…but with several losses, and this morning another one being wheezy (and no treatment for pneumonia if it’s that)…am re-evaluating a lot. Most were related…all the Star City/Mark line. But it’s discouraging for sure. We haven’t lost any for a long time.
