My last entry was February 8, 2012 and mom's horse Misty had died on the same day I did. I had no idea what would happen on February 16, 2012 and decided not to write about it until now.
Mom finished cleaning the stalls and Cookie, who was Misty's son, was hanging around like he always did hoping she'd give him a treat. Mom finished and went in the house, but looked out the window and didn't see Cookie out eating grass with Flame. Mom went back out and Cookie was still standing in the same place he had been when she went inside. She checked his gums to make sure they were the right color and he wasn't starting to colic. His gums were ok, but when mom turned to walk away she saw Cookie start to follow her, but he was walking like he was drunk. She went in a called the vet, who came out and asked mom if she noticed his tongue was blue. Mom said no and asked what would cause his tongue to turn blue. The vet said it meant he wasn't getting oxygen to his blood and something could have burst inside of him. Mom had to have him put to sleep and he was buried next to Misty. Mom doesn't believe in coincidence's, Misty died on January 17th and Cookie on February 16th. Mom thinks someone who lives at the rental trailer park someone built next to the pasture poisoned them. She's had problems with a few people who live there, usually not the same ones because most end up getting evicted.
Mom doesn't think whoever did it still lives there, and the reason Flame hasn't had anything happen to her is because she won't let anyone but mom get near her, even if they have feed.
I know mom's going to have a bad time when the 17th comes around, she always did when I died and now Misty died on the same date, then Cookie on February 16th.
I'll be with her even though she still cries when she starts thinking about me, she knows I'm watching out for her and Flame.

January was a really bad month for mom.
She had so many things happen and then on January 17th, the day I left her world, her horse, Misty, who was 32 years old died.
Mom had Misty since she was a year old and she always said Misty would out live her, but it wasn't to be.
Mom and the vet said Misty died of a heart attack and there wouldn't have been anything Mom could have done for her. Mom still felt bad because she was home and if she had known she would have been with Misty so she wouldn't have to die alone.
Mom held me when I was leaving and it was really nice.
Mom has been strong when she's around people, but I see her when she's alone and wish I could stop her tears.

Well another Christmas has passed without you. This will make five.
I still miss you so very much, you are the light of my life.
I know January 16th will be here soon, the day your problem started, and then January 17th around midnight when I found you on the floor and held you until you passed on.
I'll always love you best and will never forget you being in my life.
