Bubbles came to me after being rescued from an auction. She was 28 years old at the time and was skin and bones. She had been purchased by the "killer buyers" and after much convincing, they agreed to let her go for the $120 they paid for her. She came home with me and I made it my mission, to make her fat again. For the next 4 and 1/2 years after lots of food, treats and love I watched her blossom and grow into a truly kindred spirit. She loved to eat, and loved her horsey treats. At 32 years and 8 months old, her body was giving out and I knew it was time to let her cross over the Rainbow Bridge. |
My sweet baby, I will truly miss you. You were a very special gift to me and a very big part of my life. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to care for you through your golden years. I hope I eased your pain in those last years. I hope you are well now and know that I think of you every day. I thank God I was blessed to have you in my life. I know you're watching over me, Blue, Brandy and Jenny and I hope you're running and playing again with Cookie. I miss you and I love you.
10/26/06 Hey, Baby....I sent Cowgirl to be with you today. Did you greet her at the gates?? Please take good care of her. She's had a hard life and now she can rest and play with you for eternity.
11/11/06 One year ago today, I made one of the hardest decisions ever......and that was to let you cross the Rainbow Bridge. My dear sweet Bubbles, I hope you are running and playing with Cowgirl and Cookie now and watching over them. I know you will take care of them. There's not a day goes by that I don't think of you and hope you are finding the much needed rest and peace that you deserve. I love you and miss you. You are always in my heart.
12/25/06 Merry Christmas, Mama! I hope you are enjoying your life now at play and at peace over the Rainbow. I love you!
4/17/07 Hey Sweetie. Just checking in on you to see how you and Cowgirl are getting along. She had a hard life like you, Bubbles so I hope you are taking extra special care of her. I still miss you and think of you everyday when I'm feeding Blue, Brandy and Jenny. I know you're watching over them and keeping them safe. Run free, sweet girl and have the time of your life. I love you!
5/3/07 My sweet Mama. I got a special gift today for my birthday. It's a beautiful throw with your picture on it! I cried when I saw it! Remember your last birthday, when you had your party hat on? That's the picture on the throw. I will cherish it always and know I'm always thinking of you! I hope you're having fun now, running and playing like you were young again! I still miss you and I still love you always.
6/7/07 Hey sweet Mama. Just sitting thinking of you today. I hope you're doing okay and having the time of your life. Are you taking care of Cowgirl??

7/12/07 My Sweet Mama, a very dear friend lost her baby Sarah today. Will you please watch over her, protect her and care for her like I know you can. She was sick her last days but now I know she's running and playing in the beautiful pastures above. Take care of Sarah, Bubbles, she needs a friend. I love you sweet girl and I miss you every day.
10/13/07 Hey there, sweet girl!!! Sorry it's been a while since I visited. My lil Chiv-man is having some problems so I've been tending to him. I hope you're having fun. I know you're taking good care of Cookie for me and Sarah for her mama and sharing your sweetness with all the others. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you terribly. Please watch over us like the guardian angel I know you are! I love you.
11/1/07 Hey, Mama. Just thinking of you today and missing you. Love you always.
11/11/07 Two years ago today, you left us for greener pastures. May you always be at peace, Mama. I love you and miss you always.
Somewhere...somewhere in time's own space
For by the love that guides my pen
12/25/07 Merry Christmas sweet girl! I hope you have a wonderful day with your friends!! I love you!
2/7/08 Hey Sweet girl! Found this and thought of you!
God Bless Our Pets
They say memories are golden,
A million times I needed you,
In life I loved you dearly,
If tears could build a stairway
Our family chain is broken,
3/7/08 Hey Sweet Mama! It's snowing here! Blue, Brandy and Jenny will have NOTHING to do with it, either! They're so silly! I hope you're enjoying your rest and playing like you used to. Bubbles, please look out for Boo. She went over the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday and her mama misses her very much! I know you'll look out for her and take good care of her. She's so sweet. She's probably with her Daddy now and I'm sure you'll see them both running and playing in the pastures above. Give them both a ride every once in a while. I know you'll be gentle with them and they'll really enjoy it!! I love you sweet girl!
7/7/08 Hey Mama. How are you? Sorry it's been a while. Things have been crazy here the last few months. Blue decided to have an attitude and broke my wrist last month! He's so bad!! We WILL have a discussion about that when I get this cast off, though! :) I hope you're enjoying your time with friends. I still miss you and think of you every day!! I love you!
8/7/08 Hey Sweet girl. Just checking in on you! I hope you're enjoying yourself running and playing and eating yourself silly! It's been so hot here lately I've had to go out and hose down Blue and Brandy. Brandy loves the water, like you did, but no Blue! You know how hard headed he can be!! Anyways, just want to say Hi and I miss you and I love you! Take care of everyone and give them gentle rides every now and again!!
10/20/08 Hey sweet angel! I miss you so much.
11/11/08 My sweet baby girl, it's been 3 years since you've gone and I still miss you! You were such a sweet and gentle soul and I'm so glad you were a part of my life, even for a short time.

I know you'll take good care of that sweet baby for us. I love you, Mama girl. Enjoy your day and give Chiv a kiss from me!!

11/11/14 My sweet Mama. It's hard to believe it's been 9 years since you've been gone. There's not a day goes by that I don't think of you and smile. You were truly the sweetest horse I have ever known. I think you know I saved you and for that you were grateful. I am also grateful that I had you in my life even though it wasn't very long. You showed me your kind and sweet soul and I will never forget you. Run free, Sweet Baby, and I will see you again one day. I love you!
