There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When ever a beloved horse passes from this realm,
they all go to this very special valley.
There is always thick lush green pastures with
tall grasses dancing in a soft breeze.
There's crystal clear blue sparkling waters,
running in rivers, waterfalls and streams.
Warm spring weather with a soft gentle breeze.
The old and frail animals are young again.
Those that had been injured or maimed are made whole again.
They romp and play all day.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with their
special person who loved them here on Earth.
So each day they run and play until the day comes when
one suddenly stops playing and looks up!
Nostrils flaired, Ears up!
Sparkling eyes, from the intent gaze,
As this one looks onward towards the bridge!
And then, suddenly runs from the group!
You have been seen, and when you and your special
friend meet, you wrap your arms around your special
friends neck, tangle your fingers within the locks of hair
in the flowing mane, your freind arches that graceful
neck and bows low the noble head, in order to be able to
reach down in your arms embrace.
You look into those big knowing & loving eyes,
as your own lashes are covered in a vail of happy tears.
You are at long last, together again
And Together you cross over the Rainbow Bridge
Never to be separated again...

The orignal Author
for the Rainbow Bridge Story is "Unkown"
In it's origin is a poem.
We have been granted permission to post it here.
The Rainbow Bridge, "story" is of unknown origin. And
was written for "pets". There is a version for horses that
have no homes, horses that end up without having anyone
person to mourn thier loss. This versin was changed from
the original for the horses that have been loved and
treasured, that we can still feel them with us, and watching
over us while we await the day
that we will one day be together again.
