I was given a horse the year I turned 15. She had been neglected by the boys that had PRomisED their parents they would feed her and take care of her.
Why it took their parents almost 6 months to realize that the horse in THEIR backyard was STARVING to death was never answered to MY satisfaction.

I had been begging for a horse since 1st grade, with zero success and was fairly certain after 9 years that my parents were not being coy in order to surprise me in the future.

Turns out, my father had a weakness for mistreated animals, so I now had a horse!

I got Boo the week of spring break which allowed me to sleep in the barn with her and feed her all her meals. It was all very Black Stallion.

The first night I had to sleep at home, she broke out of the pasture 2 miles away, and ended up outside my bedroom window.

Boo and I bonded and were very close, but, she never "spoke" to me telepathically.

Saber does.

But the way he looked directly into my eyes those last few months, pleading with me to understand him,this time more than all the other times. I thought he was trying to show me what was making him sick, and heaven help me, I could NOT understand.

This next song just kills me.

I have a lot of music on my ipod I haven't listened to yet, so when I heard it for the first time, after Saber was gone, I KNEW for certain he had sent me these "stories" and that he was not mad at me.

No one but Saber I know everything that was said and done the night we let go. The vet that came to the house didn't intrude on our private moments.

I wanted very much for Saber to be able to go outside one more time so he could feel the air, look at the stars, smell his smells, and check his territory for intruders, be sure his borders were secure before leaving.

But it was cold that night and I was thinking it was probably better not to even though I knew we should.

When I started to explain to Saber that we wouldn't be able to go outside, the vet, bless his heart, said it was our choice, and that it wasn't THAT cold.

It was that cold, but I appreciated the cold breeze on my face, and the chance to feel anything other than grief if only for a moment.



I held him close, and explained to him one more time what to expect, and then I asked him one more time: did he want .. Saber, Kitty Bye Bye?....
... Saber, Kitty Night Night?

He Did.

If you look at the song list, there is typo? an error on the # 20 song...

I had not wanted to "share" this playlist. I was in pain and not feeling generous.

Even after he explained to me that he wanted "all the people to not feel hurt so much"

I was still reasoning/bargaining with him as I typed the post with the playlist.

If you compare my first post, I didn't even know how to make a paragraph, with this one, it looks like it was done by a different person. It was, I let him drive 'cause I figured he couldn't do any worse!

O.k. back trying to weasel out of sharing MY gift that was clearly NOT (just) mine.......

"No one else will understand it" and other uncharitable remarks that did NOT help my case.

I finished typing, previewed it, that button was easy to figure out (yeah me)

Everything was correct and in order.... I was still protesting when he pushed a paw in my back and I submitted reply under protest.

SWEET BOY...............

The #20 song .... All the Young Dudes....... is MY song.....

There was no error when I previewed the post .....

When it actually posted, he had condensed the playlist and separated MY Song from the rest.

I told Him his favorite story:
"When you were a little baby kitten, you were so small you could fit in one hand, and even though I didn't know you then.
I knew that I loved you.... and that I'll always love you, and there's nothing you could do that would ever make me stop loving you.
