Springtime with Chloe the Wiiiiild Mustang

Most of our bloggie friends who have been reading our posts since back in the smrp blog days know that I regularly make videos of life with our critters (links to some of the videos are on the right side of this blog). It has been a while since I have made a new video and it was high time that I put something together about this time with my sweet mustang.

I was inspired to create a collection of wonderful moments from the past few weeks and have hopefully been successful at capturing Chloe's amazing spirit and attitude during this fight against renal failure. I have truly never known such a joyful and loving and spunky animal-she has such personality and such a wonderful sense of humor. Who knew that horses were so silly? I certainly didn't!


I admit that this video is a bit more melancholy than I expected but it comes from my heart. The truth is that I know that my days with my girl are numbered and I am having a difficult time with that reality.


I hope I was able to convey the beauty, joy, and silliness that this incredible horse embodies every day. I am continually humbled and inspired by my sweet wild girl and will continue to do my best to help her enjoy whatever time she has left to the fullest. She deserves it...all animals do.


Thanks to everyone for the love, good thoughts, prayers, and kindness that you have given to me, mr smrp, and our dear Chloe. It helps so much during those difficult times. xoxo

PS-The music is by Blind Pilot - the song is 3 Rounds and a Sound.

When I look at Chloe in the video, I can't believe she's the same broken horse you brought home in 2009.

She's definitely brightened my world, even from so far away!

The song was perfect!

Dear Chloe the Miracle Mustang....the world is better for having you in it. I'm so glad you have a super-hero uncle, mommy SMRP and daddy SMRP to appreciate and love you and care for you every day for the rest of your life.

Well Suebedooooo. You have outdone yourself with this video of Miss Chloe. Love the music and love the wild mustang. She sure does not act like there is a problem...such a beautiful girl. You and Mr. are tops in my book. Thanks for everything you have done to give her such a special and loving life.

Beautiful. Something you will cherish and treasure forever. This brought tears to my eyes. She is such a beautiful horse and has come so far since you brought her home!

What a loving tribute to an amazing girl. She suffered some rough patches, but she's living out the rest of her life surrounded by love and receiving good care. And she is secure in knowing that her baby is safe and will be loved and cared for all of her life. What more can any of us ask for?

Oh Sue, knowing everything Chloe has been through and how much you and her other caregivers have done to give her the best life a horse could hope got me so choked up over this video. Chloe has an amazing spirit, as do you.
