Remembering Joanna

All through the month of April we on the Horse Channel want to honour a dear friend who passed away last year. In February her beloved pony, Pixie Dust, also passed away to join her in the next life.

Please come and support Joanna (RIP) and her pony, Pixie Dust (RIP) 101958 on the Horse Channel for horse of the month. We would greatly appreciate your daily votes for her. And don't forget that you can blog on the HC without an account.

Perhaps some of you remember me mentioning Joanna last year when she died. She was a very special friend. She was bedridden for many years but didn't lose her happy spirit. She was on the HC for 3 years and blogged regularly, always having a kind word for those in trouble. Not once did any of us suspect that she wasn't well! At the age of 34 she passed away peacefully at home.

On my pages I have photos of Joanna in bed being visited by Pixie Dust. She had a wonderful relationship with her pony and made friends easily with all those who were blessed to have her in their lives.

Vote Pixie Dust daily in April! HC 101958

Thank you! And here's a vote for your page!

  Thanks so much for your kind words regarding my passing. Yes, it's me, Acorn, writing! Mama wasn't sure what she was going to do. She's never let her animals who have passed on blog because it makes her too sad but she decided to make an exception for me. And good thing too! What would SHE write about on here?

So, here I am, writing from the other side. And I've instilled some of my cheekiness in my squirrel friends that I left behind. Mama was driving home a couple of days ago and a squirrel was crossing the driveway. Unlike her neighbour, she stopped and didn't run it over!

The squirrel had a huge peanut in its mouth. One of mine, I know. Mama has been putting out my peanuts and acorns for the other squirrels. Anyway, not to begrudge food I can no longer eat, the squirrel scampered a few feet and sat down. Mama drove a few more feet. The squirrel hopped a couple more and stopped. Mama drove a couple more… you get the picture.

Finally, the squirrel ran into the carport. Mama drove halfway in and the squirrel stopped and started burying the peanut right there in the gravel while mama sat patiently with the engine running watching the little sneak!

She had two dogs with her in the car, Melian and Kermit, who were going insane. As soon as she let them out they took off into the forest like flying banshees. Good thing the squirrel was long gone by then! They knew me but who knows what they would do with a strange squirrel.

Anyway, it's good to be back online. Even if it's only in the spirit. I hope you have a great weekend! And here's a vote for you.

  How are you doing? Thanks for stopping by. I hope the new year is going well for you. I wanted to have Acorn stop by and wish all her friends a happy new year but our year started out very very sadly and I haven't been able to bring myself to spread the harsh news.

On New Year's Eve, her life was cut short by a careless driver. We found her on our driveway. Single lane, wooded, private, gravel road. No one should be driving fast enough on it to hit anything! Our driveway is the right of way for several neighbours. We lost a dog years ago exactly the same way.

It makes me both simultaneously very sad and very angry. I can't believe how attached we were to that cute little squirrel. She taught me that squirrels are extremely smart and adept at twisting people around their little fingers. We fed her breakfast every morning and often throughout the day she'd climb on us and beg for a treat.

It was just so awful. At 1.5 years old she was in the prime of her life and I was prepared to have her around for at least another 14 years. And her first babies would have been born this spring! I miss her. It's hard to write this without a few tears.

I hope things are better for you than they are for us. Wishing you all the best in the new year. Can you believe that January is already half over?

Here's a vote for you.

  How are you doing? I know, I know it's a been a loooooong time since I've written. I've been busy finding food, playing, sleeping, basically doing all the things that a squirrel does best. What has mama been doing? Well, she's been hitting her head.

Sigh! In July she was a in bike accident. She somersaulted and landed directly on her head. After losing her hearing for a bit she was okay but had a concussion that affected her for almost 2 weeks.

And then guess what she did last month! Her horse went crazy and bucked her off. She landed on her head (is there a magnet in there?) again and this time was knocked out for about half an hour. She was rushed to the ER and is still having some trouble from that brain injury.

So, no riding for her for at least 2 months. She'll drive the horses instead. I think she should forget horses and stick to squirrels. In fact, did you know that today the 5th, it is exactly one year since mama found me? I was a tiny baby with a broken paw. If you don't know my story you can read it on my page under, "Celebrity I Most Resemble."

I do live in a kind of paradise. There are squirrel fruit trees everywhere. Squirrel fruits in the garden, squirrel nuts buried in the ground. Mama says they're called, apples, pears, melons, etc. I call them squirrel food. She's not too thrilled that I have to pick 5 or 6 apples and then pick the best ones for myself. Isn't that why she grows them?

Well, what have you been up to? Not hitting your head, I hope. Here's a vote for you and happy anniversary to me!

  Thanks Swipey
Sorry this is a quick C/P~
Hi! Heres a vote for you today, thank you so much for voting for us. ~Yesterday was high humility, and very much as the day went on. It was about 95* F, so mom decided to keep her cats inside the cool house. They were actually very pleased and comfortable. Today mom watched the Kuni kids (our neighbors) at 1:20, for $10 an hour (until 4 o'clock). Although she has to share with her older brother who is helping out..so she is kinda bummed MOL! What is up with you today? Doing anything fun? I hope that whatever you ARE doing is fun. Anyways, I hope your all well!

Come visit me, Angel Samme ((*.*)) RIP sweet Acorn 188686.
