“In memory of Nerja ~”

Description from trinkets: **If you are easily upset about cruelty to animals, this may be hard to read**
Nerja a white 2 year old Arabian gelding,was traumatized by a 9 year old girl when she blinded him by calling him over to her & with a pencil in each hand, stabbed his eyes as he bent his head down to her.
He became a permanent resident at Big Sky and still trusted strangers,,he never refused some fresh greens or the gift of an apple, kising your hand with his gentle lips.
He passed away at age 11 ~ we miss him so...

    I really hope that girl who blinded poor Nerja was put away somewhere before she did any more damage to animals or people! Big Sky Animal Sanctuary sounds like a wonderfull place. I’m glad there are people who try so hard to make up for the cruelty of others. Good for you for volunteering!

    I don’t understand why people can be so cruel to animals and other people or kids. So good to see that there is an other way!

    I can only agree with you ~ some of the cases we see are pretty awful!
    I included some black stones to represent the heart condition of that 9 yr.old & others like her.
    Nerja was pure white, but perhaps the stress caused him to begin to turn gray which is why the tourmilated quartz was chosen.

    Oh my goodness!! The comment about your pic was very disturbing to read. I actually gasped….. I am a teacher and my heart breaks for these kids who are soooooo troubled….. I just can’t imagine what was going through this girl’s mind!!! I don’t know how anyone could do such a thing.
    Nerja was a beautiful horse. He does look like he was a gentle creature. I don’t know a lot about horses, but that isn’t very old for a horse is it? The sanctuary sounds like a wonderful place for these needy animals!!

    No, 11 years is just a young horse, but the trauma, the stress of beeing blind & left in a stall before he came to Big Sky sem to have taken quite a toll on him .

    I hope that child got serious counselling~ she did it out of revenge against nerja owner, who asked her pareents to keep her from going through the field as a short cut to her school bus…The next day she blinded him..:(
