There’s not much I’ve left unsaid about my heart horse, Visa. He passed away unexpectedly on April 17, 2012 and I’ve missed his blaze face and little curved ears every day since. Even in death, he taught me so much about love and life — it’s a debt I will never, ever be able to repay.
In some ways, it feels like just yesterday that he was here; yet in others, it seems like a lifetime away. A lot has happened in my life in the last 5 years, some of it thanks to Visa. I know one thing for sure: I would not be the woman I am today without him. Maybe it’s cheesy to say that about a horse, but he was with me during the most tumultuous times of my life, as I grew up from a wild teen to a (sometimes) responsible adult.
All that’s left to say is that I try to do better with every successive horse that comes into my life. I try to leave them better than I found them, and I try to be the best horsewoman I can. Without a doubt that is the best way I know to honor the horse that gave me his all. Love you, V. Forever and always <3
