Have You Seen My Friend?

Hello nice Ladies, Trax here with a very important message.

My Friend is missing.

I was hoping maybe someone has seen him

Yesterday my lady came out late to give us our breakfast.  She seemed funny, and was making funny noises.
A little later the nice man hooked the truck up to the trailer and my friend, the old guy, got in.  I asked him where he was going, but he did not know.

I thought they were taking him to the pony doctor because he had told me that he had not been feeling well and that all his feet were hurting all the time.   Our lady is pretty good about getting us help for our owies when we need them.

I yelled to him as they drove away that it would be fine, that the lady would help him. And he yelled back that he would see me in a little bit and maybe we go go romp and play in the arena.

I finished my breakfast of icky grass hay, and waited for him to come home.

My lady and the nice man came home with the trailer. I called to my friend but he was not there.

I called again and again, but he was not there.

Then my lady put a saddle on me, so I thought he must have escaped and we were going to look for him, but we did not find him.  She made funny noises the whole time we were searching too.  I think she might be sick or something.

Here is a picture of me looking for him

Finally we headed home and I called again and again to see if he was back yet. After all it was dinner time, and Danny the old guy never misses a meal.   But he was not there.  I am very worried about his disappearance.

Here is a picture of my friend.  My lady took this before they left.  If you see him could you please call my lady on her little thingy that she always talks into.

 I miss my friend very much.


  1. This post made me bawl like a baby. I'm so, so sorry. It will be okay Trax. I promise. You will see him again one day. Just focus on making your lady happy. You don't have to worry about Danny. Hugs.

    1. I was seriously surprised at Trax's reaction to Danny being gone. He is better today, but was clearly distressed all day yesterday. I knew they were buds, but I didn't realize how much so. It made me bawl too.

    2. Aww poor baby!! I'm glad horses live in the moment and move on from heartbreak faster than we do. You're in my thoughts. :)

  2. So. Many Tears. This broke my heart. I'm so so so sorry, Cindy. *hugs*

  3. I'm so sorry, Cindy. He had a great life with you and he was loved. Hugs.

  4. I hate it when they expect their buddy to get out of the trailer and I just head into the house, carrying an empty halter. Hang in there. I'm sorry!

  5. Ohhh, so sorry. It is so hard to do but Danny is a very lucky horse that he had a mum who knew when enough was enough and he got to go in such a peaceful way, at the right time, after such a wonderful retirement. Sorry Trax, poor boy, but he'll come to visit you in your dreams, I'm sure.
