It's long overdue but I've finally brought myself around to making a tribute towards my first Horse Superman who died January 20th 2012.

If you don't know already, The barn was struck with Botulism caused by Blister Beetle in the hay between the dates of January 14th - 21st. We lost the lives on 7 horses.

Superman didn't start off as my horse, in fact he was a lesson horse, owned by Kelly my instructor. I had been riding barely 2 month when he arrived, Big, Black, Filthy and Fat. It was love at first site. He wasn't the most easy going horse and in the early days I never wanted to ride him because of his uncomfortable gaits. Pretty soon I grew to love him.

Everyday I would spoil him with pettings, grooming, hugs and usually a treat or two. Withint three months he would nicker to me as soon as he saw me. The remainder of the year passed and we started to compete together in Playdays. We weren't the best and he was very good or fast but we had fun just the same.

On December 17th Kelly hosted the annual Barn Party. Halfway through, everyone was directed outside, Meagan came up with the idea of playing Duck Duck goose, I seemed to be the only person actually willing to play not really knowing what was going on. A few short seconds later, Kelly walked around the barn holding an terribly dirty Superman with a big red bow on his halter.

I'm not one to cry in public but I couldn't hold back the waterfalls that poured out of my eyes. I was the proud ownder of Superman for exactly a Month and 3 Days before he contracted the virus. He went fast and hopefully painlessly, and despite our short time together, I doubt I will ever love another horse more than him.
