aka Sensation, aka Pretty Girl
4/2/1985 - 8/20/2010
You’ve been my friend for over 17 years. Sometimes it felt like you were my only friend. I’m sorry you are in pain. You have always been an easy keeper, always did whatever I asked of you. You do not deserve to be in pain any longer.
We’ve covered a lot of ground, you & I. We’ve hit the trails all over A (Cave Creek, New River, Black Canyon City, Rio Verde, Scottsdale, Mesa, Apache Junction, Tucson, Sonoita, Flagstaff, Mormon Lake, Prescott, Payson and your favorite ranch in Wickenburg, just to name a few.) We’ve also climbed to over 7,000 feet in the mountains of Silver City, New Mexico. You were an amazing horse on the trails and you loved chasing cattle. I’ll always smile when I think of you bossing the cattle as you pushed them down the trail.
You’ve been pictured in Horse Illustrated and Horses USA magaines as well as in a national advertisement for PetSmart in their 150+ State Line Tack outlets. I only wish I had found a copy of our display.
Thank you being my horse, my friend and part of my family. You won Nick over and you will forever be “his girl”.
You changed my strong opinion of Arabian horses. You asked for little and gave so much in return. Safe, strong, smart, beautiful Sensation - You won the hearts of so many and the respect of some pretty tough cowboys. You took care of children and humored teenagers. You never really liked a heavy guy on your back, but you did it just the same.
I am honored to have had the privilege of having you as my horse. Thank you for everything, I love you and I will miss you dearly my Pretty Girl.
