In Loving Memory of Our Beautiful Thoroughbred “Ace” (1985 – 2009)

“Nothing is more sacred as the bond between horse and rider… No other creature can ever become so emotionally close to a human as a horse. When a horse dies, the memory lives on because an enormous part of his owner’s heart, soul, very existence dies also… but that can never be laid to rest, it is not meant to be…”

When you look beyond the fenceline and see that I’m not there,
Please remember that I’ll never forget how much you really cared.
I appreciate all the love you put into my soul,
Often making me feel as though I was, once again, a newborn foal.
When you look beyond the fenceline and see an empty space
I’m hoping for thoughts of joy to replaces those tears on your face.
Although our time together was taken away too soon,
I’ll always be watching over you through the sun, stars, and moon.
When you look beyond the fenceline you should not feel all alone.
For a part of you came with me the day I went to God’s home.
And although I didn’t want to, so soon, to be put to rest
I assure you, dear friend, that my spirit and soul still feel the very best.
When you look beyond the fenceline and think of me for awhile.
Remember all the fun we shared and those times I made you smile.
Remember how we’d run the fields, but never run away
I’ll never forget your gentle touch on my coat of bay.
So, when you look beyond the fenceline don’t think we’re far apart
For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
