Tomorrow, I will conclude my posts about our visit to the Corolla Wild Horse Fund rescue facility last Saturday.
But, today….today, I have sad news.
You most likely recall my posts about Aggie, the white horse we see en route to and from the Outer Banks.
Aggie hasn’t been well the past few weeks, and sadly, she passed away yesterday morning. She has so many fans. As news of her passing spread, her Facebook page filled with notes of condolences for her owners and others who loved her, as well as photos and shared memories of her.
Nearly every time we went to the Outer Banks, we stopped by her pasture with a granola bar to share. Motor Man always, always took pictures of me with her. I had stopped sharing them for the most part, because I assumed you may have tired of seeing them.
Recently, because of her illness, she had been confined to a corral close to her stable and hadn’t been out to her fence at the side of the highway. The last time we were able to visit with her was on October 5 – one month ago today.
It will be so sad to drive by her pasture on the way to the Outer Banks on future trips.
I know that time will ease the sorrow, but we’ll always remember her.
How true the sign that one of her fans made for her fence.
Run free, sweet spirit. We hope you knew how much you were loved here on earth.
