She liked Parades.
She would Dance and Prance and show off.
She loved drinking Beer out of the can.
She loved rolling in the mud after a good rain.
She loved Bread and Butter Pickles.
She loved trail rides in the woods.
She never gave me an ounce of trouble.
She loved chewing tobacco, and Pimento cheese sandwiches.
She was a Good, reliable companion. She carried me thousands of miles.
She brought me pleasure for 15 years.
She loved to run in the pasture, bucking , kicking with her head up high and her tail straight up in the air, trailing her like a banner.
She never bucked while ridden, never kicked or bit anyone.
She loved her sweet feed.
She was a McCurdy.
She never faltered, no matter where I pointed her nose.
She loved dogs, cats and goats.
She loved a good scratch under her belly.
She loved a good cooling off with the water hose when it would get hot in the summer.
She loved kids and was very gentle.
And I loved her…
She will be in my heart until I die and she will be terribly missed.

born late 70's, early 80's - died 10.29.2010

Oh, Gaby, so sorry to hear about Star. Your memories will always shine brightly.

I'm so very, very sorry. She was well-loved, and she's running free alongside my beloved mare Wildflower, through endless pastures of alfalfa.

Memories are so hard for a long time. I lost my westie dog this midsummer and I can not think of her without crying. A part of the life is gone forewer. I am very sorry about Star and can not read your blog without tears.
