Heartbroken.....






 
Ranger - Do It For Dalkey
11th March 2002 - 09 March 2013


Horses have a way of capturing our hearts. They bring us moments of breathtaking happiness and sadly moments of heartbreaking saddness. Today the so beautiful Ranger (Do It For Dalkey) did both and was lost to those who loved him most. My heart hurts for Geoff and Joyce, Jodie, Angie, Erin and all the team at Arlary.

"Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again."

So sorry to hear of this loss, Elizabeth ... my heart and prayers go out to the family, and to you, their friend, as well. Lovely photos and art, and such a beautiful horse!

Thank you Karen such a sad loss. I painted his dam for Geoff and Joyce gosh must be nearly twenty years ago. Saturday was a huge blow to all who knew and loved him :(

I hope so, Elizabeth. I wouldn't change having the close relationships with our wonderful animal friends despite the heartbreak we suffer at their loss.
