Murphy

5 years ago I said my final goodbye to Murphy. Today I sat in my parents’ dining room looking at the pictures they have of him. I love this photo as he looks huge! He was in full on stallion mode.

It was the hardest and easiest decision I’ve had to make. I gave him his wings so he could soar to thank him for the times he helped me fly. I took away his pain even though it broke my heart. I thank him every day for the lessons he taught me and for the bruises, scars and tears along the way. He helped shape me as the rider I am today. My life was richer for him. I met so many people as a result of being his partner. He saved me from myself. He prepared me for Buddy. He will always be etched in my heart.

He was then and will always be my Smurfles. 🐴😍
