"What is the most admirable creature on God's green Earth? Why, it's the bee! Have you ever seen a bee on vacation? Have you ever seen a bee take a sick day? Well, my friends, the answer is no! So I say, be... the bee! Be the bee!" - Jeremiah Fink Bioshock Infinite
I didn't read the story until now...I was too scared to open it and see something that would be hard to take. But what I saw was the epitome of love and trust...and I know that feeling. Having the two horses myself, yes, I'd've stayed with them all the way to the end...of both of us, probably.
Very heartwarming, and very, very moving. thanks for posting, although I was too scared to open the story for a few days.
Thanks for sharing. I read a story similar to this in Guideposts a couple months ago. Glad this one had a happy ending as well.
