Sarah was a gift to Sophie and me. She is the amazing horse that taught us everything we need to know about horses. She taught us how to ride. She taught us how to take care of a horse. She gently taught us that we could trust her. She knew how to behave when you entrusted her with your baby. She took our 6 year old to her first rodeo and went just fast enough to let Sophie think that she won. Sophie doesn't remember much about life before Sarah.
We are learning that life has it's stages. Sophie is now in school and commits to studying each and every night. Sophie is a gifted athlete and loves to practice.
Sarah waits at the fence daily and comes running when she sees our car pull in the drive. We want the best for Sarah and even though it is extremely hard, we realize that she will be a blessing to another family that already knows her well. That family has horses and they ride daily. They homeschool which means Sarah won't have to wait until the evening to see them. They also have other horses that she will enjoy more than anything. Sarah loves other horses and always picks a buddy.
We praise God for our time with this amazing horse. We've been told that we might never find another one like her.
