The Horse with White Eyelashes

 On this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember a sweet old horse who served his state with honor, and in retirement touched many hearts. Old bones and a weak heart took Apache Kid from us Sunday 5/25/14.  We were with him and he was crunching carrots till the end

 When he became a part of my life I had no idea what an incredible personality he had.  He would bat those big while eyelashes and you would naturally give him a carrot or apple treat or lime flavored Dorito. He was curious about everything, he would roam the yard and put is nose in very pot & box & doghouse he came across. He was afraid of nothing and accepting of everyone.
             I know he was just an old horse, but he was my very best friend and a really great listener and I'm so

 honored he let me be a part of his life, even for just a little while.

"I once spent my days under saddle and spur
A good tool and companion we old cowponies were.
Now the campfires gone silent,
The days are lonely and long,
What's an old cowpony to do
When all the cowboys are gone."

Good-by Old Friend.
