Alaska and her girls
Today after I put up my post, life got real hard for us here on the farm. We have an older horse named Alaska that was given to us about 2 1/2 years ago. She was a black beautiful Tennessee Walker with a wonderful temperament. Tay would just hop on her bareback and ride around the corral. She died today.
New baby chicks were being born and then our horse died all in the same day. Both ends of the spectrum. It is life! It will be so nice for us all to be with Jesus one day! Life can be so mean. We told our horse we wouldn't leave her. We didn't, she died a horrible death. I am sorry that my youngest who is soon to be 16 watched, she wouldn't have it any other way. I tried to protect her. She couldn't leave her horse alone. I think Tay learned a lot about commitment today. In the easy and in the hard are we going to stick with it. So, if you wouldn't mind would you lift my girls up today to the Lord. They really need some extra prayers. We are so thankful we are not alone. We have the Lord to help us through this. We really love our animals. I know a lot of you out there know what I mean. Thank you ladies for being there when we need you! You are so precious to us!
It is late tonight when I am putting up this post it is Friday night. I didn't know what tomorrow would be like. Our little town starts celebrating with a famous turtle race in the morning. It is so funny! It will help to take our minds off of things.
