Rest in peace, sweet Della

We lost one of the Lluest ponies today Her name was Della...



You had 33 wonderful years Della and today life just caught up with you.

It's been a difficult winter for you, losing first condition, and then your best friend Metro. Since then, things just haven't been the same. No longer able to digest your food, you lost weight and were depressed.

Today we made a choice for you. A difficult choice. The right choice. In the end you went so quietly, quickly and peacefully.

Rest in peace, sweet Della. Run free at the bridge with Metro and say hi to Charley for me.

I am so very sorry for your loss. She was gorgeous and had a great life with you! 33 is a great life for a horse. but I know it doesn't make the pain any easier to bare.

Thanks for your kind words. Della was a pony at the rescue centre where I volunteer. It's so sad each time we lose one but they do have good lives to the end of their days...

I am so sorry for your loss. Your Della was so beautiful.

Run free over the bridge sweet girl, where there are endless fields of green grass for you to play in.

Bless you for being a rescuer, Alexa.

Della is beautiful, and thanks to the rescue you work for she had love and attention and care.

There's a version of the Rainbow Bridge story especially for horses:


By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
when their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
is a place where beloved creatures find rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
til The Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed.
Their bodies have healed with strength imbued.

They trot through the grass without even a care,
til one day they whinny and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes sharp and alert.
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the herd.

For just at that second, there's no room for remorse.
As they see each other...one person...one horse.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart
has turned to joy once more, in each heart.
They nuzzle with a love that will last forever.
And then, side-by-side, they cross over...together.

Della's enjoying perfect health and happiness now, running free through surroundings more beautiful than we can imagine. But she won't forget those who loved her here. She won't forget you, and I believe you'll see her again someday.
