    A stable I go to has a horse that has won trophys, ribbons, and what not.
    The owner now uses him for lessons and training camps. You can put a 4 year old on him- his name is Thunder- and he'll just follow commands and do what-ever is asked of him.
    He has cancer, and the owners have had him operated on and treated a number of times, but it still keeps coming back.
    Tomorrow, they are going to put him down.
    Yeah, I know- this has nothing to do with Siege.
    How-ever, I have no where else to vent, so I am venting here. To bad for you. This horse is just the greatest. He is so full of personality, life, history, and all the little kids love him. My mouth is full of profanity, which I cannot include here. I hate cancer, and all diseases that bring animals and people to their ends before their time. People I don't like so much- that's my problem- not yours- but animals I have never had a problem with. I will miss this horse. He greets me every day that I go there.

    I really wish that someone or something somewhere was responsible for this cancer, so that I could direct my rage. But there isn't. My heart goes out to anyone or any group that has lost family/friends/aquaintances or anything else to something like this. Just a damn helpless feeling. And he isn't even my horse. But he is a great horse, and he will be missed by many people.
    That is all- end of vent. Thank you.

    Death is certain... for all.

    Quality of life, not quantity are words to live by.

    TY. The Shuar of the Amazon say it isn't mportant how many days you live- rather, how you live each day. There is an awful important truth in this, whatever your religion or orientation might be. This horse lived up to his or anyone elses expectations.

    Ty. Mine, and all of the little kids that rode him. You wouldn't believe the signs they left on his stall. Like family.

    For all that live
    god makes a soul
    Your life and theirs
    make a whole
    When one departs
    from ill or time
    Your heart is torn
    your soul does mourn
    From that moment on
    they will never be gone
    Safe in your memory
    to love unconditionally

    MWS..
