This page is dedicated to all the Angel Horses that are now watching over us. I encourage you to share the story of your beloved horse with us all so that we have a glimpse of the way these amazing animals have touched so many peoples lives. Let us commemorate these majestic gifts from God forever in our hearts. Please submit your story and picture to Ruth@equi-angels.org.
Miss Sirling aka "Princess" was truly a princess loved by all who knew her. She was foaled May 17, 1984 in Florida. She was a beautiful chestnut colored thoroughbred mare with a star and stripe down her face. During her life she traveled far and wide to Indiana for many years and then back to Florida where she found her way to Squires Stables in 2004. Princess was my first lesson horse after relocating from IN to Florida. Princess found us through friends of friends and she proved to be such a blessing to every life she touched but especially mine. Princess had the biggest heart of any animal I have ever known. She loved and cared for so many children and was truly passionate about her job as a "Teacher". She could sense what your abilities and skill levels were and she would adjust her responses and behavior accordingly. Her carreer consisted of English and Western lessons, including jumping and dressage. She won many a ribbon in the 4-H and schooling shows that she entered and was admired by all who knew her. Her talents and abilities were unmeasurable and she will be dearly remembered in many hearts.
In April 2007 Princess was diagnosed with arthritis and had to cancel her trip to the Area C Horse show in Bushnell Florida. Shortly thereafter she coliced while we were out of town for a one day family outing and when finding her that evening at feeding time it was too late. The vet came quickly and determined that she needed to be rushed to the equine hospital in Ocala FL. We trailered her right over and they set her up for overnight care in their medical stable. I received the call on Father's Day, June 17, 2007 that Princess was not going to pull through. Saying "Goodbye" to Princess was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I love her so dearly and she remains very alive in my heart.
The previous owners dumped Excalibur at Opa Locka Airport in Tarmac. They left him there with no food or water...after a few days someone found him..called him Tarmac. He was full of maggots on his back.
Three vigilante women trailered him to their ranch and my ex and I adopted him.
He was over 25 yrs old. He was brought back to life and health. The old gentle gentleman was a racehorse who was SOOO kind to me that when I rode him, he waited for me to get comfy and then slowly rode me around...he knew I was not experienced and he babysat me! He was so sweet. Laminitis took him and we had to put him down. It was the saddest day of my life. I saw him drop to his knees and go. He is my Equi-Angel 4 sure!
I was blessed to have him for 8 months and he WAS very happy with us, but it was too late for him. The Humane Society wanted to put him down when he was found, but the ladies refused and he got 8 months of easy life with us. He was a true gentle giant!!
