Some days love is not enough. Love can heal hearts, but some days it cannot fix broken bodies. Love cannot stop when it is time to let go. Today we said goodbye to two of our beautiful mares. Bianca had been battling abscesses and laminitis and today she was ready, it was her time. It was something that we saw coming and we did all we could to keep her comfortable and we hoped that she would get better, but she was ready. She walked for the last time today, guided by our loving hands, and was surrounded by our hugs and tears as she was laid to rest. We found Rose down in her stall this morning and it was clear that she was ready to go, that she had laid down for the last time. We did all we could to get her up, to figure out what was wrong, but Rose was not scared, she was ready to go. With loving arms, we held her too as she was laid to rest. The two of these mares had not been friends for very long, but they had formed a bond. And with all the love that we could give them, it was not enough to fix them, but it was enough to guide them to sleep. Rest easy beautiful mares, it's just a blink of an eye till the next time we meet.
