Forever In Our Hearts, Beau
The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:
Ol’ Beau, Forever in Our Hearts!
Beau was just shy of his 29th birthday, a beautiful Arab and Arab through and through.He loved attention, but really seemed to expect attention (in a funny way). Love on him all you want, but don’t expect any in return, LOL. He wasn’t the affectionate type, usually. On occasion, he’d slip and forget life was all about him. Ok, that’s all funny stuff. With the exception of anxious moments when his neighboring buddy was moved, Beau was one of the more dependable, go to horses around here. He’d stand quietly when attended to. He enjoyed being loved on. That was gift enough, knowing you’d made his day a better one. Knowing he’d enjoyed your offerings….a brush and hoof pick or just a “Hi Beau”.
I know I will miss just that, being able to send him a “Hi Beau-Beau” across the arena.
