  1. It is still so unbelievable. Still hurts to remember such a lively lil filly with so much promise and such a great family. Z was such a great mom-she had to have felt the heartache also.She is romping over the fields of Heaven now!

    1. What happen to Z princess

      1. She was euthanized on Oct 29, 2014 after an accident in her paddock.

  2. Such a very lovely tribute to very special Z Princess; may you gallop, jump and race over the rainbow with all of the great. And my your granddaddy guide you with his hooves to
    learn all that you can learn in heavan that you would have learned on earth about racing
    dear little Z Princess.
    Love and hugs dear sweet curly mane

  3. Dear Team Z and Kyle:

    Absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Thank you for sharing. Love and Hugs, JB

  4. She has her wings…..

  5. Just lovely as was she, Baby Zen. Looked just like her mom. Thank you for sharing with us who loved her too. Xoxo

  6. Miss Curly-Mane Z princess will always, always be in my heart and this lovely tribute that I saved to watch until today when I was quite alone except for my Tessa. When the tears and sobs came – she padded over and rested her head on my leg. I sobbed even more. But watching the videos of this frisky, fun loving princess I couldn’t not help but laugh. What a handful she was for her patient Mom trotting after her, ever watchful. Tragedies happen in an instant and she is physically no longer with us. I will never ever forget placing a bouquet and seeing the tiara. I really lost it with the tears but was not alone. We loved her and always will.
    Bless Zenyatta and all who love and care for her.
    Thank you for these gorgeous photos and videos.
    I hope Z is doing well and always think of her although I don’t come as often to the site. Good luck to all who ordered a sticker. Count me as one who would love to see her in person again. We were so fortunate to be close to her living in California.

    1. Dear Delrene,
      So good to hear from you, and hope you are doing well!
      Loved your post.
      Hugs and Love

  7. Oh, my. This photo is certainly a tear jerker!!! Zenny’s little girl with the curly mane.

    How adorable she was! We’ll never forget Zenny’s Easter Filly, Z Princess!!!

    With love,
    Linda

  8. It so hurts my heart to think of how beautiful she was and what hopes we all held for her. She will never leave her place in my heart. I’m so thankful I believe in heaven for horses. Hugs to all.

  9. What a beautiful and special girl. How loved she was and is. Thanks for remembering her today. She will never be forgotten.

  10. I was just thinking about her today. I found this poem and like to share it.

    MY GRANDEST FOAL
    (author unknown)
    I’ll lend you for a little while
    My grandest foal, He said.
    For you to love while she’s alive
    And morn for when she’s dead.
    It may be one or twenty years,
    Or days or months , you see.
    But, will you, till I take her back,
    Take care of her for me?
    She’ll bring her charms to gladden you,
    And should her stay be brief,
    You’ll have treasured memories
    As solace for your grief.
    I cannot promise she will stay,
    Since all from earth return.
    But, there are lessons taught on earth
    I want this foal to learn.
    I’ve looked the wide world over
    In my search for teachers true.
    And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes,
    With trust, I have selected you.
    Now will you give her your total love?
    Nor think the labor vain,
    Nor hate Me when I come
    To take her back again?
    I know you’ll give her tenderness
    And love will bloom each day.
    And for the happiness you’ve known!
    Forever grateful stay.
    But should I come and call for her
    Much sooner than you’d planned
    You’ll brave the bitter grief that comes
    And someday you’ll understand
    For though I’ll call her home to Me
    This promise to you I do make,
    For all the love and care you gave
    She’ll wait for you, inside Heaven’s Gate.

  11. Still hard to believe it’s been a year. Part of me still keeps expecting to see the post that she headed to Mulberry farm to start her training to be a race horse. She was so beautiful! Like she was a show horse.

    I can’t wait to see this years full sibling.

    ZPrince the 3rd

    Or maybe even

    ZPrincess the 2nd

  12. She was so beautiful. I think about her all the time. What a sad loss.

  13. Such a beautiful poem Sue,now I am crying-again.Thank-you.
    I like to think of her with her granddad and Tasty, know she has her wings and is under His care now.Some elders close by will be nice for her to come to and rest with after she plays with her pals .Fly little girl,we love you.

  14. Thank you so much, Team Z for this memorial. I vividly remember seeing flowers/cards and the tiara being placed at Z’s statue that weekend, with people pausing/standing there quietly or hugging each other. Thanks again to all for this poignant one year remembrance.

  15. i was so upset when I heard about her accident. So sad….I always called her Z bunny as she was born on Easter. I hate when they get hurt. My heart goes out to Zenyatta. May her new baby live a long health life by her mother’s loving side.

  16. My heart still hurts so much for you!!
