  1. I am so deeply sorry. Major you were one of the best. You were outstanding. We knew that on the first day we saw you. You join the company of Jock and Dudley, ponies in a million, loved beyond measure, engraved upon the very core of our beings. Never, ever forgotten. Grief is raw and intense, a worthy testimony of the love that we hold for you. With much, much love to you J.

  2. Oh no Major now I'll never get to ride with you and our humans. You were one of the most handsome boys I've ever come across and I loved reading about your life. You made my human smile everytime she saw those photos of you lying down in the school. I'm so pleased you had a nice life with your human. Rest in peace handsome boy I'm going to miss you Zoe xx

  10. Thank you once again. I went back to the stables today the first time since Major died. It was very hard to collect all his tack and other bits and pieces and leave his stall empty. I didn't have the heart to take down his name. It would have seemed a denial of his existence. The one comfort is that he is buried nearby in a lovely setting. I took the last few roses from my garden and laid them on his grave.

    1. Thanks Ann. It's been three weeks today and I still feel that if I go to the stables he'll still be waiting with his low key whicker that he did everytime I arrived. It was hard this week when I saw his name had been taken down ready for another horse to take his place. Anyway, to help me concentrate on other things, yesterday I collected an ancient collie from the local rescue centre. She's very poorly - had been abandoned - God knows what she has had to endure, but is still so desperate to be loved. How animals have so much trust in the human race escapes me sometimes. I am a bit concerned about her leg, though,so will make an appointment with vet tomorrow. Thanks for thinking of me :)

  16. Oh bless you, it is so hard when a much loved pet dies. We had a lovely BC from a puppy until she died 4 years ago. I love BC's. I know the one you have now will be loved a lot, bless her. We miss Hana still to this day she went to doggie heaven the day my husband had his retiral dinner, that was very hard coming home to an empty house. Animals become so much part of the family, don't they? Like Major, no one will ever replace her/him. I wish you well with your pet, maybe you will post a photograph at some point of her. X

    1. I'm waiting for the results of the x-rays she's having done this morning. Felt so guilty as she was taken off me and led away. Her little face looked as if felt betrayed all over again.

  17. Oh bless her. Fingers and paws crossed that she is ok, x

  18. I wasn't sure if you came to your blog much. Just to say I am thinking about you and hope Christmas will be OK. I wish I hadn't said such a trite thing as 'I know how you feel' because nobody really knows how somebody else feels. I did lose a pony though, years ago, and remember how I felt then. I hope the collie is alright .

    1. Thank you, Foody. I didn't think the comment was trite at all. Whoever, or whatever we lose is always unique and special to us. By coincidence, I felt the need to write Maj a final tribute at this special time of year (though I've always thought Chrtistmas has a tinge of sadness to it). I've just posted it on a new thread.
      Thank you for thinking of me. I wish you peace for 2015.

  19. I'm a longtime reader from the States and could not believe my eyes when I read the news. My heart breaks for you. I am so very sorry for loss of such a horse as Major. I loved his naps in the arena and your hacks around the countryside. He seemed like such a ham; he was priceless. He is dearly missed from my part of the world.
