About a week after Romeo passed, I received an email that my story about him had won “Story of the Year” in the “Down The Isle Stories” contest we had entered last October. Sponsored by Uckele, my story titled “Romeo” won story of the month for October, 2011 and was eligible for Story of the Year. A poignant and delightful surprise, I was beyond words when I realized that Romeo’s story will be published later this year in Uckele’s October catalog, giving others a chance to read about the profound bond that is possible between horse and human.
The equine grace of spiritual wisdom and the ability of horses to enter our hearts and bring us untold happiness and peace is a message that Romeo came into my life to help me share with the world. I am eternally grateful to him for being my soul mate and my beloved equine friend. He will live in my heart forever.
