Tribute to Snow White

On 9/1/15 we said good-bye to our lovely Snow White.  She had been rescued in early 2012 from a kill auction, thin, dirty, and discarded with terrible feet that needed a lot of work.  We brought her to our sanctuary a few months after she had been saved to be a companion for Siegfried.  The two instantly bonded and became inseparable-we called them our Royal Couple-beautiful and regal.

Over the 3 years she was with us she suffered from various conditions-the previously foundered foot that needed rehab, and Cushing’s Disease.  Thru it all, she remained strong and we gave her everything she could have wanted, mostly the love she may have not known in her younger years.  She was a grand old lady, at least 35 years of age, and we miss her dearly-and Siegfried certainly does as well.  They shared that once in a lifetime bond that can not be replaced.

We are expecting her final costs (vet bills and cremation) to be around $1,500.  If you feel so inspired to help with that, we would certainly be grateful.

Rest easy old girl,  your troubles are now behind you!

Please take a few moments to watch the Tribute Slideshow we have put together in Snow White’s memory.

Thank you,

    Somewhere in time’s own space
    There must be some sweet pastured place
    Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
    Some paradise where horses go,
    For by the love that guides my pen
    I know great horses live again.

    Dear Snow, you were a grand, tough, beautiful girl. You will be missed, especially by Cindy and Siegfried. Watch over them.

    Snow White, it was a blessing to know you, care for you and love you. Thank you for your presence, your energy on the farm, for teaching us compassion. Look over Siegfried always. May we feel you on a breeze, touching us all with your grace. We love you sweet girl. Don’t let my mom in heaven feed you too many apples. You were her favorite. We will take care of your Prince, and Mommy. Love, Lyric n Holly

    I will never forget the first day I came to FHFSHS. My first glimpse of this little piece of Heaven was of The Royal Couple. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I gazed upon these magnificent horses. Snow and Sieg… We all have our favorites but these two horses were loved by everyone. You coukdnt help but be in awe. There was something special about them. You could feel the energy they shared. The bond between them. They were Sieg and Snow. Sweet Lady we will all miss you. It’s been too long since I have visited and to know that you won’t be there has brought tears to my eyes. Sleep well Princess and be at peace.

    Snow was so very fortunate to have her forever home at Ferrell Hollow Farm Senior Horse Sanctuary with Cindy, Siegfried and all of the wonderful volunteers @ FHFSHS. Cindy, you do such a wonderful job with all the horses and what a beautiful tribute. I can barely type thru the tears…..

    Really sorry for your loss she is at the rainbow bridge with her other companions. She gave you as much delight as you could give back.. 35 yr old is a respectable age to depart this world for her species…

    I had the honor to be part of Snows life past 2 years plus.. She was so gentle and loved her Siegfried! She will be missed by her earth angel Cindy who took care of all her needs medically and spiritually.. Run free Snow White and we will see again one day!
