Thank you Dickiebo for the picture!
It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. As many of you horsey people know our good friend and fellow blogger Barn Goddess passed away recently. It is a shock to all of us who knew her and I still can't really get my mind to accept such sad news.
Barn Goddess' blog Ramblings From the Reservation was one of the first blogs that I started to read back 3 or 4 years ago. She cracked me up with all the goings on around her place with her darling son Wee One and her older son Bubba. Throw in Marvin the cat and Scooter her old man of a horse and there were always stories to brighten your day.
BG as we called her could be a little rough around the edges at times, making this old gal blush, but told it like it was and had a heart of gold. She loved her family beyond measure and her four legged kids as much too. Her style of writing was so unique, she could say more in one short sentence then I could in a whole paragraph and you knew exactly what she meant. She could hand back the quips as fast as you could dish them out and all in good fun.
Her horse was one of the bright spots in her life and although she didn't ride as much as she would have liked to when she did she liked to go like the wind! Scooter was in his thirties and had myriad issues that she diligently cared for. I learned so much about different feeds and supplements from her. Scooter was one pampered horse.
I will miss her posts and e-mails so much. I had hoped to meet her in person one day. I feel blessed to have known her even though it was through cyberspace. Rest in peace Lori, we all miss you!!!!!
