~Stonewall Jackson~
I still remember you, Stonewall, and the many, many things you taught me during our time
I pray that I will never forget those lessons, some learned in bitter anguish, some in girlhood dreams and hopes.
There will never again be a horse like you.
~*~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I have loved you so much it hurt, and hated you still more at times.
And you loved me in return.
You tried to kill me, time and time again.
I was awed by you power.
You waited at the gate in the morning, nickering softly just for me.  Your girl.
I was enthralled by your gentleness.
I gave everything I had for you.
And you, also, taught me many things.
You are a such a special little fellow.  
We miss you so much, but I know you are happy.  After all, you still have your favorite job - being loved by little children everywhere!
Brownie, you are so special to me.  When I thought I could never love again, you taught me that I could.  
You showed me things I never knew I had - you helped me to heal.
I am amazed at the way God has blessed me with His beautiful creatures, horses.  He has used them in my life in ways I never dreamed of.  Through them He has brought me closer to Himself, and I am so grateful for every heartache, every tear, and especially for every breathtaking gallop I have had the privilege to experience in His school.

Oh, Kellie...I still tear-up when I see pictures of Stonewall.  He was such a good boy.  It's so hard to understand why, sometimes...
I know what it's like to love a horse, and I know how hard it was for you to give up Riley.  You were so brave and patient with him.  Remember when we were playing fox-and-geese in the pasture, and he started following us around the paths?:)
Dear fat little Hershey!:)   
Brownie is a wonderful horse, and I'm so glad that you have him - he looks like a lot of fun to ride:)
I love you,
