From Spring Farm CARES in New York:
Chops was about 33 years old and had lived with us at the farm for the past 17 yrs. She came with her best horse friend Dinah. The two of them were inseparable, and we know, that even from spirit, Chops is keeping tabs on what Dinah is doing and where she is.
Chops was a horse of great heart and quiet wisdom. She grew enormously in her years here with us. And in her final days, she shared the enormity of her heart -the peace she had found, the wisdom she had accumulated over the years, and the beautiful energy of her soul - in a way that will live on within each of our hearts.
We could write a lot of stories about Chops and tell how she got here to SFC and a lot of her history but that is not what Chops wants us to do. She told us to keep it short, but to share what was most important to her heart, for that is what she would like to be remembered by. Her life wasn't about trials and tribulations of the horse world, although she had plenty of those stories to tell. Her life wasn't about being misunderstood, although she had plenty of experiences to substantiate that. Instead, her life was about knowing she was being heard. And she left this earth knowing that she was not only heard here, but that we would also be listening to her from spirit. She left here knowing that her heart was shared, felt, heard, and understood. She left trusting completely in that heart connection. And that, she told us, was what her life was all about.
Chops, we hear you. We will continue to feel your most precious heart and the enormity of who you are. Thanks for all you gave to us. And, yes, we'll continue to look after Dinah, just as you always have.
* Dinah joined Chops over the Rainbow Bridge (5-1-2011) and they are reunited forever.
