Rainbow Jasper

Post by linny » 02 Jun 2010, 18:08

:cry: :cry: Today we sadly lost the dearest and sweetest Rainbow pony.
Little Jasper was only 28 inches tall but had a heart as big as a Shires, he was loved so much and I can't believe he has gone :cry:
It all happened very suddenly this morning, and by lunchtime we took the decision to PTS.
He had twisted his gut , there was nothing that we could do.
Jasper had the sweetest nature and was always the calming influence for the wild moorland babies that we rescue from the meat man, he would show them the ropes and I always say the wild boys settled more easily because of Jasper.
He's going to leave a space here at Rainbow that we will never be able to fill :cry:
Run free my precious boy...wait for me at the bridge.

What sad news, Linny. Dear Jasper was very fortunate to be cared for so well at your Sanctuary and I am sure he enjoyed his role of settling in the little wild foals.

Thinking of you all.

How terribly sad, all the worse for being unexpected. He will have a place in your hearts and memories for ever, it sounds as though he earned it. (((Hugs)))

He'll always stay with you through your happy memories, he sounds like such a wonderful fella.

The saddest part of dealing with animals is having to help them pass on their way without pain and suffering :roll: .

Jasper had a great life at Rainbow and you should be proud of how happy he was, and the example he set the youngsters :P

Don't mourn for me
Dear owner, kind and true.
I know that you will miss me
As I will also think of you.

We shared so many secrets;
those you whispered in my ear.
I've kept those secrets for you
lest anyone would hear.

And in return you've kept me
from being turned out in the cold.
You've fed, watered, and cared for me
while we both grew old.

But God had called and needs me;
He says that it is time
I claim that sweet reward
in a kinder, green clime.

He promises sweeter clover,
clear water, rich and pure.
I'll never have to suffer
from wounds that humans cannot cure.

I'll romp and play all day
with others he has called hither.
I'll have so many new friends
that will scratch upon my wither.

I'll be watching out for you
when comes your judgment day
and together towards the pearly gates
we again will ride away!

Jasper sounds like a true gent of the horse world and he had a wonderful last few years with you at the sanctuary, Lisa's poem is so lovely.
He's running free now.
