Mekeezun was born in 1996 and was registered under the APHA as Cue Dee Bar Hemp She died in 2007 from bowel cancer. Mekeezun was purchased January 2000 from Alberta. She had three foals for me, the first one is Shadows Moon Badger, son of Royal San Badger (Q-Horse). Shadow is born in 2001 and started as a barrel horse. In 2003 Mekeezun had Nitika, sire Ljibbes Valour (Friesian) and in 2007 she had Metina, sire Matthijs (Friesian).

Mekeezun was trained in reining and as a ranch horse. She was an affectionate mare who had an amazing personality. Some days it was worth just talking with her, other days, riding her was the right thing to do. She could turn on a dime much to the amazement of the cowboy who rode her a lot. She could also crow hop with the best of them. Her sense of adventure knew no bounds and she enjoyed going on trail rides all over the area. She made lovely babies but felt that motherhood was a waste of time and much preferred that the foals just "get a job and leave her alone".

On July 12, 2007 she walked across the Rainbow Bridge and is now frolicking through the forever fields. 


The Secret, in memory of Mekeezun
April 10 1996 to July 12 2007
by Annamaria Tadlock

My time's come my dear, 
As it comes for us all 
Hug me close one last time 
As I lay in my stall 
I feel you shudder, 
But there's no need to cry 
I'll tell you the secret of why horses die 
I go to a pasture that's 
far away and above, 
But know that we're forever 
bound by our love 
I'll make hoof prints to heaven 
So you'll find your way, 
Wear the path smooth to 
keep you from wandering astray 
I'll carry your guardian angel nearby, 
With my wings wipe the tears from 
your soul when you cry, 
If you're ever alone, 
Or your life's hard to lead, 
Close your eyes and remember 
Me, your eternal steed, 
Who awaits, at the gates 
to carry you home 
So the last journey you make 
Is not made alone 
On my golden hooves we'll gallop, 
And on silver wings fly, 
Yes, this is the secret 
Of why horses die.
