Good morning, FOBs - and friends of FOBs!! <3 Less than two weeks from now, we'll be observing the 17th anniversary of Barbaro's earthly birthday. Seventeen years! As she does each year, FOB Lou Ann has provided the Remembrance Vigil call and asked me to share here on the forum.

From Lou Ann:

FOR BARBARO BIRTHDAY REMEMBRANCE
04/29/2003 - 01/29/2007

29 April, 2020
Wednesday
7:00 pm EST
Of course, as always, please join in at any time
of the day or night whenever possible for you.

Your years here on earth, honey, were far too few,
but the hearts you touched are beyond measure.

For all of us who love and salute him, please join in remembering Barbaro . . .

Offer your favorite tribute, your own special words to him,
light a candle, offer a prayer, raise a toast, a donation to UPENN or a favorite rescue, be a voice for our wild horses and burros, our many four-legged friends, in Barbaro's honor,
just a quiet moment, however you like to honor our forever beloved champion . . .

We love you for eternity, Barbaro!
Run with the angels honey!
******************************************

Remember Me
When you hear the thunder
remember me
for those are my hoof beats
upon your heart
deep in the night.
Do not fear the lightning
for my hooves strike sparks
so you may see
in your darkest hour.
And when the rain falls
remember me
for those are my tears of joy
as I run with the sky herd
free of rein and pain and heavy burden.
Look up and remember me
for you will see the shape of my
fiery head thrown high
among the clouds,
warmed by sun but even more
because you remember me.

Glad that worked!  A bouquet was also delivered at his birthplace but that florist wasn't picture oriented or technologically savvy!   But, important thing is, our love for Barbaro was delivered in those bouquets!
