Tuesdays With Texas ( Irreplaceable)

May 1978 - June 25, 2012



Had to go with this one even though he was so dirty.

                                                                       
                                                                               
I hesitated to do this post but this was a story worth starting and it is worth finishing....maybe not just yet.

Oh Janice, I am so sorry. I saw that you had posted earlier, and chicken that I am I didn't come to see I was afraid to read this.Hugs to you and Godspeed to Texas , a truly wonderful horse I wish I had had the privilege to meet. One day I will, and if I can believe what I like he will have met a particular group of hot Appy chicks and guys ,and they will run free and with joy forever

Janice said...

Thanks for all the well wishes...it's nice to have a group of like minded people around...we all know they are not "just horses"
Sherry he couldn't be running with a better crowd.

I am so sorry! I still have that chunk of his tail but it's at home in Canada. I won't be back there for a couple months :C

Janice. Read the link to your blog on "Ride a Good Horse". I am so sorry to see that you have lost your "forever friend" at the tender age of 34. My old girl was 33 when she passed over the Bridge. I had owned her for 29 years. It is never easy but that many years make it extremely hard to deal with. Hugs to you and your family on the loss of this family member. Carrie in Alberta.

I'm so sorry.

Venom said...

Sorry for your loss - Texas had a great friend in you and it is obvious you cherished him always. He was a lucky horse, but I think you were maybe a luckier girl to have had him so long.
Again, my condolences.

I know there's nothing really to say ... I'm so sorry.

I too feel really sorry, I'm sure he had a really wonderful life with you, but saying good bye is really sad. Janneke from the Netherlands

Ah, I can relate to this. It's strange, but I had already posted horse pictures this morning before seeing your blog. I had a wonderful half QH/Half thoroughbred mare I named Gypsy when I was younger. She's gone now too. She had a huge heart, would do anything I asked of her, and could run like the wind.

Janice, "So Sorry"

aurora said...

So very sorry for your loss, may the memories of your beloved Texas help ease the pain of saying goodbye to your handsome guy.

Cut-N-Jump said...

It is never easy to lose one. You were quite blessed to have all of the good times you shared with him. Look on that when you think of him. One door closes and another one opens. He may have just been making room for the next horse needing love to come into you life.

As I said on Sherry's blog, A fine horsemen in Heaven was needing a mount. You sent them the best one you had to offer. He will be well cared for until the day comes that you are to join him. Chin up.

My heart breaks for you. I just wrote about my neighbors aging horses today and found this by accident. The loss of a pet is so sad and leaves such a hole in our lives.

Hi Janice, just stopping by to say hello.

Far Side of Fifty said...

Hi Janice, I am so sorry..I enjoyed all the posts about Texas. Hold on to your good memories:)

Terry and Linda said...

That is one of the hardest things there is to do ever! Texas is and was a wonderful friend and you were a great Mom.
