How We Met

i met these horses when they were in their early 30s, but they never showed it. they both had a buck or two left in them, especially simon. their names were always mentioned together, becausee they hatedto be apart. they had been together for many years, and were very close. so in late summer of 2006, when courtney stopped eating for still unknown reasons and, despite our best efforts, became practically a skeleton, we didn't know what to do. it would be torture for simon to live without her, but too cruel to make courtney keep going. so eventually, my riding instructor made the difficult decision to euthanize them both, because simon was old enough that the loss of his best friend probably would have slowly killed him. so on september 14, 2006, simon and courtney were taken up to a field and put to sleep side by side. they were buried there, right next to each other, together forever, as we always knew was right. their memory lives forever at overlook though, as best friends beyond our understanding. we miss them, but it was the right thing to do. we love you, crazy guys..

What a beautiful horses. i'm very sorry for your loss. i'm sure that you loved them both a lot. Have a vote! Also, if you are new on here, watch out because there are alot of fake or cyber-stolen horses on here. People just take pictures off of the internet, make a profile, and call it their horse. It is both lying and stealing and more than that it is wrong. We all need to team together to stop it, and the only way that we can do that is to keep our eyes open and DON'T VOTE FOR FAKES! Thank You! :) Hal & His Gal

K, M, ON.
