Did you bring her here to die?

"Did you bring her here to die?"  A comment made by a RAB about Little Sister....The DOR plans on keeping all her horses until they cross the rainbow bridge, or she does. So this question was just totally stupid.
The DOR believes that seeing a horse out well is just as important, if not more so, than bringing them along.  It is easy to love any being when they are young, athletic, and healthy.  She also finds it easy to love them when they are winding down, a time when they need that love the most.
The DOR believes that it is important to thank her horses for all they have given her.  She thinks that making sure we are well taken care of our ENTIRE life is one small way to do that.  She brought Little Sister her to thank her for a life well lived, for the gift she gave the DOR in Friend, to repay Friend in some way for the blessing he was to her life.
So in answer to the RAB and his stupid question...yes she was brought her to die-we all were really including the RAB.  Little Sister is an appy, the DOR is hoping she is like Freedom and has 20 more years to enjoy being retired and spoiled.  The DOR is hoping we all out live her.
I hope the RAB learns to value life and to appreciate other beings just because the exist, otherwise he is going to continue to be a lonely and bitter person.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

I think it is lovely that Little Sister is able to retire in such a loving home. Waht is a RAB?

RAB stands for Rat Ass Bastard, the DORs name for really rotten people

People can really be stupid can't they? Glad Little Sister found a good loving home with you and the herd.

It breaks my heart to see older animals looking for a home. Of course there are always extenuating circumstances, but not always.

I met a delightful old gelding a few weeks back that a newbie friend adopted. He is such a sweet soul that I heard myself say that if anything happened and he needed a home again, that I'd take him in a heartbeat. Many of these oldsters worked hard, gave their all for one or more owners. They deserve a lovely retirement.

We're all gonna die :-)

Even though I didn't know what a RAB was, like Fern, I knew it was a stupid question. Any horse would be lucky to be able to spend out the rest of his/her day with someone that loves them and cares for them till the end.
