  3. On this day in 1952 Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne.She was just 25yrs old.67yrs later Her Majesty is the one constant in our ever changing troubled world.She is an example to us all never putting a foot wrong.Unlike the younger members of her family there is still an air of mystery about her as it should be.We know the Queen yet we don’t.Long may she to continue to reign.God bless you Ma’am

    1. Dear Sheena,

      Thank you for posting this reminder. I agree with you completely. Congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment — a matchless role model and representative of her country.

      Continued good health to Her Majesty!

      Best Wishes always.

      1. Dear Sheena:

        God Bless The Queen.

    2. Best Wishes to the Queen. She is the most admired woman today. England has been blessed with two great queens, the two Elizabeths.

  4. Dear Z friends,
    Amy passed over the Rainbow Bridge this morning aided by the caring hands of her Dr. Mike.
    I decided to forego the x-ray I had planned on having him do because she had been continuing downhill. I felt that even if we did find something else causing her decline (possibly a tumor) that there was nothing else we could do to help her.
    When I talked with her this morning telling her how much I love her, she gave me a look of complete trust, which let me know that I was making the right decision for her.
    Cappy & I will miss our very special girl, but I feel better knowing that Amy is no longer suffering and is enjoying all the happiness of heaven with all of our other fur babies who we have allowed to go to the better place we call Heaven.
    I am very thankful for the special gift and blessing of Amy that God shared with me for almost ten years and my life is much richer for being able to share that time with her.

    1. Dear Donna Z,
      I’m so sorry for your loss! It is so hard to lose our beloved furry companions. You gave Amy so much love and she absolutely trusted you to do right by her. She will be waiting for you in Heaven!

    2. Dear Donna Z:

      My heart goes out to you and Cappy. Rest In Peace beautiful Amy; pain free in God’s care. Love and Hugs, JB 😢

    3. Dear Donna Z.,

      I just read your post, and I am so sorry for your loss. You loved Amy and did everything you could to make her better — Amy knows that. The memories you two created will comfort you, and she will be waiting to greet you and Cappy when the time comes. Meanwhile, please know your friends here on Z’s blog share your sorrow and send loving thoughts to Cappy and you. RIP, sweet Amy.

      Hugs and Love ❤️

  5. Dear Z, COZ, ZI, ZEL and DC:

    Have a pleasant evening and Happy Dreams. Love all of you so much. Hugs, JB

  6. Dear Donna Z.I am sorry to learn that Amy has died.RIP.I know you had 10 wonderful years with her and those memories will bring you great comfort.Love and hugs.

    Our boy needs help such as where to bury a body kind of help!Stanley is causing big trouble and Herman the German the needle man turned him into a mummy with so much bandage in case he gets ‘proud flesh’A week in the life of Hovis.Praying for all our racehorses.

    1. Sheena,
      Thanks for our weekly dose of Hovite! Healing thoughts and prayers going out to him.

    2. Poor Hovis! As if he doesn’t have enough worrisome things to handle already. I hope all that taping and bandaging pays off with smooth clean healing. Don’t worry, Hovis; I don’t think your lady-love’s head will be turned by the miniature whippersnapper! 12 hh? Really!

      Continued healing thoughts and prayers to our favorite, the Hoverine. <3

      Thanks for the Hovis diary, Sheena.

      Hugs and Love

    3. SOOOO funny.
      L’Oreal mane. Stanley is cute and with mini Mom, Too cute. Ride away, Mini Mom. Bring home the blues!
      Long live The Hoverine.
      Love and Hugs.

  14. Donna Z,
    So sad for your loss. That is such a hard decision to make for one of our little loved ones. I hope it is a comfort for you to know she is now home with other fur babies and happy and healthy. I hope your heart begins to heal soon.


    Winx enjoys some physio ahead of her exhibition gallop at Randwick.


    Poor Hovis even the vet’s dog steals his ball!A picture of abject misery!

    3 more cases of flu confirmed at Donald McCain’s yard and one ‘suspicious’at another stables Moose’s old dad NTD has slammed the BHA for their over reaction,He says all horses are vaccinated so it should’nt be a huge problem.

    1. Hovis sure is handsome! Here’s to continued healing.

      Hmmm, over reaction? Round the next corner could be entire barns wiped out from quarantine failures! Hope they get a handle on it. Poor babies.

      Annie’s foal sure is a cutie and that eye ( stinky eye ). Mean that in the most loving way, of course. Beautiful Mom!

      Safe and Sound.
