Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone but not forgotten…Sunday

The Weekly Photo Challenge theme of “Gone but not forgotten” is the perfect opportunity for me to share the horse love of my life, Sunday.  By next summer, she will in all probability have been put down, having reached the venerable horse age of 30+.  I’ll miss her enthusiasm, speed, and willingness to go anywhere while always giving her best.  If you know horses, you know the joy of having a horse you never have to urge to go faster and is beautiful besides.  Sunday, there’s not another one like you.  Thanks for all the wonderful times and memories.


A friend of mine is having difficulty getting a pingback from WordPress, so I’m going to share her link with you here.  We went similar places this year, although with different animals.  To see Sandra’s entry, click on her name and thanks!

Here’s another friend with the same problem, but great photos:  Chris in Holland.

  1. Janet- this is a happy/sad thought. Enjoy your dear friend. She is beautiful in many ways.

  2. Swav says:

    Love the name of your horse 🙂 Sunday is my fav day of the week, for the reflection of the week ahead…

  3. Such joy emanating from the two of you. A beautiful and uplifting interpretation of this week’s challenge. Thank you for the Light. Blessings, Michele

  4. Oh, how very beautiful, but sad. I don’t know too much about horses. Why will she have to be put down? I’m assuming that she’s very old and she will succumb to an illness?

  5. billgncs says:

    she is ( was ) a good horse. Which is about as good an eulogy as I can imagine.

  6. a beautiful moment to cherish until the last minute. Then, it’ll be beautiful memories to cherish forever. She is beautiful. You both are together.

  7. Sandra says:

    I know how you must feel.

  8. pike says:

    Beautiful, you two!

  9. Mother Hen says:

    I have goosebumps as I read these sweet and heartfelt thoughts to your very special horse..

  10. Beautiful and sad, a lovely response to the challenge.

    I love horses. Never had one of my own, but wanted an Appaloosa badly as a child. Sunday, what a great name.

    I can’t imagine…after 30 years…

  15. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful memory, and magnificent friendship. It must be difficult to let such a close companion go after all of those years.

  16. She is a beauty, it is so sad to have to say goodbye and let go.

  17. seeker says:

    Never ever forget… That is a beautiful memory, Janet. 😢 Perpetua

  18. So sweet – and what a gift to have had that mutual love and trust for so many years.

  19. Hanni says:

    That’s sad.
    My sister used to have 2 horses. She loved them and I remember her crying for weeks when our circumstances changed and we had to give them away.

    • I completely understand, Hanni. I know that the people that have Sunday now won’t allow her to suffer and are taking great care of her, even feeding her special food that she can eat with bad teeth. They love her, too.


  20. Dear Janet,

    I’ve never been a horse person. But seeing them through my daughter in law’s eyes has given me a new appreciation. Sunday sounds very special. Sorry I never got to meet her but feel that I have through you.

    Blessings and shalom,


  21. Jill says:

    I’m so sorry to hear that Janet. I’ve been a horse person all my life and the day my guy had to be put down was one of the toughest. Love your picture together!

  22. She is truly a beauty. I hope the end is farther away than we think.

  23. Always cherished, never forgotten. ❤

  24. Jaap Kroon says:

    A beautiful photo and memorie!

  25. Barb says:

    She is one special horse, that fact shines through when you write about her. It will be heartbreaking for you when her time does come, but over time, you will be able to look back on the wonderful memories you made together, and they will sustain you.

    What a beautiful, graceful looking creature Janet. 30 years is amazing – lucky you, and lucky her!

  28. God gives us such rich experiences through our interactions with domesticated animals – big and small. Pray that you will have a peace when the times comes to say goodbye, Janet.

    • Thanks, Chuck. I’m at peace with her passing, whenever it comes, and will always have many good memories and stories of our times together. Just thankful God saw fit to put her in my world.


  29. Imelda says:

    What a wonderful and Sad entry. Gorgeous photo of you both.

    what could you do more for the horse than writing ” I’ll miss her enthusiasm, speed, and willingness to go anywhere while always giving her best.”

    Sorry you won’t have Sunday with you forever (which is what most animal lovers would wish for) but enjoy the time you have left. And of course you should take photos and more photos because she is quite beautiful 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
