"Vega" you truly were The Real Deal



An Empty Bridle
An empty bridle hangs upon a wooden peg in the office
An empty halter with the faded memories of what was
Covered in the orange tint of sand from your last days you walked with us
Faded colors from the good times you had
The bridle is wrapped delicately together
Holding in the good rides
Still black and white
Hardly broken in yet by the rides that were not
The bit a shiny silver like your mane
The bridle so new - so unused
Not as used as it should have been
It hangs as memory of what was and what never will be
It will never be wiped down of the dust that is to build upon it
as that will wipe away pieces of you
It will never be worn by another as that might replace pieces of you
It is just an empty bridle but it means so much
It holds love and sadness
The emptiness of this bridle was once filled of a beautiful face
I can still see it
Ears facing happiness and curiousity
Forelock soft laying gently over a sloping forehead
and then the browband
beautifully cautious eyes always kind
an elegant face beholding the epitome of beauty
and then the noseband
tapered down to a perfect pink muzzle of musical whinnies
between the reins once was a beautiful neck
building muscle replacing times of weakness
someone hurt you but why?
I can't comprehend as I -
still grieve for you
the first time I saw you
so thin and so hurt
but you closed your eyes as I pet your face and you knew
everything was going to be okay
the last time I saw you - healed
your head in my lap
I kissed you and told you that you were beautiful
and then you slipped away
leaving behind an empty bridle
that now hangs on a wooden peg in the office
wrapped delicately around memories of you
- Jacinda Panzenhagen - Fico



Thank you for reading up on our beloved equines, they hope to see you soon!
