Thank you, Willem. Your Earth Mom, Coreene, knows what I have been through with our pony's laminitis, and how I have worried about how much one dear pony should have to suffer before we let her go.
If and when the time comes, I hope it is you who meets her on the bridge. You will know her because she is the prettiest, sweetest, dearest most precious pony...all white with a flowing mane and kind brown eyes. Please take her under your wing when you see her. Thank you, Willem.
Mein selve I promise you, we all be seeing each other a-gain. Until then, wenn you don't nott to can see us, we be there mit you in your heart und in spirit. You don't nott to can see us, but mannie times we be standing right next to you, we be der wind wot be blowing across die pasture, we be der thump und you don't nott to know where der sound wot it be coming from.
This it be right.
I haff sayed this be fore, I be ein German horse und this it be straight from mein mouth.
Willem---I know many things at the Bridge are confidential, such as committee assignments, etc......but the questions begs to be asked.....what did you guys do with the rubber band ball and why was it returned?
Willem! What a timely reminder that our four-legged friends are still with us; I swear my sweet Lady paid me a visit on Monday, as I was spreading hay for the horses that live in "her" field. I got this feeling that she was there, and I looked around. For just one tiny microsecond I could see her face, clear as day, looking at me from just inside the run-in shed. She looked happy. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif So I smiled back, and went on with my work without shedding a tear. If she's happy, how can I not be?
There are many, many "horsjes" that go to the bridge without loving "peeps" mourning their passing. The broken down work horses, the foals that no one wants, the race horses that were just a bit slow... I hope that they find the peace and love that was not afforded them in this earthly realm.
Jocko-I believe Aero addressed these poor souls in his lecture about the tunnel to the Bridge-I do believe he said a very special invitation is sent to them and their arrival at The Bridge is much celebratedâ€¦.I too worried about them until he explained this, and he said their sorrow on earth is more than made up for at The Bridge
Dearest Willem, a very happy Thanksgiving to you and all the others there across the Bridge (including my recently crossed kitty, Grel).
There is a very good reason you and your Modder Coreene (you loff her, and she loffs you) have your picture together on on the cover of Merry's book, A Passion for Horses. It was because your loff is there on both your faces, like we all loff our horjes, and doges, and kitties, and goats, and other fur and feather people.
JockoHorse, this wot it be verrie true und verrie sad. Aber wenn they get here, then they can to see that this place it be verrie wunnerful and so full off loff that they can to get der loff here wot they don't nott to haff getted on Earth.
When peoples like you they get here, die celebration it be SO gigantico! Becose der loff we haff it don't nott just to be for our own peeps, it be fur die peeps wot they haff helped horsjes.
Some times you see sad horse wot mebbe he just need ein pat or ein kind word. All ways be gifting this to der horse, becose some times this it be all he needs to know that there be verrie nice people in der world also.
Mein selve I would haff winded up in slaughterhouse iffen Coreene she didn't nott to haff buyed me. This it be wrong, but wenn she buyed me this it be right. Die people wot they haff no regard for der horse, they be wrong.
Wenn you haff horse wot he be verrie old or lame or sick and you don't nott to haff no money no more to keep him, don't nott to just putt him in ein field or send off to some person wot you hop will take care off him. This it be wrong. Der gift wot you can to gift him with at this time is to let him haff gentle passing to der Bridge. You owe it to der horsje. Iffen you don't nott haff no monies for this, call der Herr Doktor or Miss Herr Doktor und splain this to him or her and say "I gift you payments."
Thank you Willem... You have brought tears to my eyes but you remind me that all of our lost loves are not gone forever, they are simply waiting for us. If you see a spotted beautiful dalmation (he's probably been hanging off your tail) tell him I miss him and I think of him every day. If you see two black and white Aussies tell them they are still in my heart and no worries.... there's no big bad cars where they are so they are safe. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/sadsmile.gif
