Farewell to a distant friend 1


LA CIMMERII 3/18/94-11/28/07

I got an email this morning from BlueSue … one that has me in tears, which probably doesn’t even approach how Sue feels right now. She’s had to have one of her mares put down – La Cimmerii or Cimmi.

Cimmi was the beautiful black Arabian Blue Star mare that Sue let me ride while I was in Texas this summer. (I don’t dare show you the pictures of what the poor horse had to endure with me on her back.) She was the most patient yet intuitive horse a new and very unsure rider could have had. I had a blast riding her over the Texas countryside. I had hoped that one day I could return for a visit and another ride but now Cimmi will have to live in our memories.

She will be missed.

    Thank you Leah. I tried to post to my blog about her and just didn’t have the heart. I’ll try again in a couple of days.

    The picture you posted is one of my favorites. You can really see how happy she and Jared are and how well they work together.
