I felt the need to post this separately from my crafty card blog posts. OMGoodness...Hope you all don't mind...this hits close to home as we share our lives with God's creations.
This is a photo of a dear old friend that Bruce and I have gotten to know very well over this past year including his brother and sister Santana and Shay.
Bruce did most of the daily cleaning and release to pasture for these three loving beasts. But we took Rusty in when Santana and Shay would go riding with owners, Chris and Jerry on camping trips throughout the summer.
Rusty was 33 years old and rode thousands of miles in his 18+ years with his family. However, as seniors, we have to stay home and take it easy, enjoy the retirement years.
We took him in with our herd (Dallas and Duncan) so he wouldn't be so lonely when family was out of town.
We lost a good friend this weekend but his memory will always live on.
RIP “Rusty Bucket”
We will miss YOU!
