So I know that I haven’t posted anything for a while. (Sorry…) So this is probably a depressing post to be coming back to the blog with, but I need to pay tribute to GQ, the best friend anyone could ever ask for.
A couple of weeks ago, he colicked and it was too severe for him to recover from. I can’t imagine any horse in the world ever living up to the perfectness of GQ. He was the first (and only, actually) horse that I have ever owned and I could never have asked for a better companion. He was always willing to snuggle when I was sad, stand for hours while I groomed and clipped and messed with him, and gallop like his tail was on fire when we were feeling crazy! He carried me, my mom, my dog, my friends and some of my students. He was used in a friend’s wedding proposal as the “noble steed.” He jumped like a youngster even up to a ripe old age and was generally perfect in every way. I loved him more than anything in the world and he will be impossible to replace. Rest peacefully, Sir — you deserve it.
