The Rainbow Bridge for Horses
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill, is a lush, green meadow where
time stands still. Where the friends of man and woman do run, when their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next, is a place where beloved creatures
find rest.On this golden land, they wait and they play, til The Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day. No more do they suffer,
in pain or in sadness, for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness. Their limbs are restored, their health renewed.
Their bodies have healed with strength imbued. They trot through the grass without even a care, til one day they whinny and
sniff the air. All ears prick forward, eyes sharp and alert. Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the herd. For just at that
second, there's no room for remorse. As they see each other...one person...one horse. So they run to each other, these friends
from long past, the time of their parting is over at last. The sadness they felt while they were apart has turned to joy once
more, in each heart. They nuzzle with a love that will last forever. And then, side-by-side, they cross over...together.
Someday we'll be together again, I Love You 'Bee'.

"No heaven can heaven be, if my horse isn't there to welcome me."
"When I bestride her, I soar, I am a hawk; she trots the air; the earth sings when
she touches it; the basest horn of her hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes...she is pure air and fire...the princess
of palfreys; her neigh is like the bidding of a Queen and her countenance enforces homage."
