So it's been about 3 years since I last posted anything on this channel, oops. A-Levels and university caught up with me, I guess. But I wanted to make and upload this for 3 reasons:
1) it was genuinely so therapeutic to make and I really need(ed) that
2) it gives this channel some form of closure, if that makes any sense. I made this channel not long after I got Sam and I suppose this is me documenting the end of our journey,, I guess.
3) I needed people to see just what an amazing little ginger pony Sam was, even if that was just me and my irl friends.
So...yeah...Three weeks ago I received the worst news of my life and, following the rough plot line of episode 1.06 of Fresh Meat, I rushed back home from Glasgow to spend my last day with Sam. He'd gotten severe laminitis that even the vets had been unable to detect until it was too late. It was the worst day, but it was also a good day. I got to spend a few hours with him before and after, and not being able to be there to say goodbye was one of my biggest fears. So I'm grateful for that.
Before I go, I just wanted to say a few words about Sam (even if it is to the void or the one remaining person reading this,,, and future-me reading this). Sam was the best thing to ever happen to me and I'm so fucking glad that I got to spend the 5 years, almost 6, that I did with him. He shaped so much of who I am today and it really wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that he saved my life on multiple occasions. I'm so proud of what we achieved together and will continue to be proud for the rest of my life. He was my (and still is) my best friend.
Sam, i love and miss you, you little ratbag.
