Our Sweet Old Man Gordie has crossed over Rainbow's Bridge after spending almost three years with us at Hooves & Paws Rescue of the Heartland. Thursday, December 16, 2010 Gordie laid down very peacefully next to the barn and never got up. He could not raise his head and was very weak.We knew it was time to let him go. He was one of the sweetest old horses, always ready to greet us and he would call out to us when he seen us. He knew how much he was loved as we always gave him a hug & kiss each time he came to see us. He was a true joy to have at the rescue and he will be greatly missed. We will never forget you our sweet old man. Run Free now Gordie and we will meet again one day our gentle old man.
