Wow Dukie, the first year has just flown by and it really has flown, seems like only yesterday that we had to say goodbye to you dear lad.
I hope you still know we did everything we could for you, it was a long hard road and in the end we were just out of options.
Pain free now lad, I know you are still at the yard. I know your there everytime we are bringing the horses in and they all spook for no reason, I know your laughing at us then!

May I go now?

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.
I want to go.
I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day,
to give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and so afraid,
because I see your tears.
I'll not be far,
I promise that, and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you,
wherever you may go.
Thank you so much for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That's why it's hard to say good-bye
and end this life with you.
So hold me now, just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.

The days when you could still work, you flew at jumps, so much for cobs cant jump!


In the final few days, you spent so much time laying down to take the pressure off yr feet xx


R.I.P. Duke xx
