Illusion fought a hard battle with Cushings. In the end, Illusion lost out to the disease. Illusion was only here for 13 very short years, but he touched many peoples' lives, and many people in the show world knew who Illusion was. Illusion was gelded as a tiny baby, so has no offspring to live on his show legacy, but the memories and awards from him in his show days will never be forgotten. May you once again be the horse in heaven that many of us knew you were here on earth. We will forever miss your meal time whinnies that brought everybody up to the barn for grain.

February 1992 - April 2005
Illusion was a show horse that everybody would of loved to have. He loved it all. He loved to jump, halter and anything else you would let him do. When it came to jumping, he was the kind of horse that gives it his all, and you better hang on as most of the time he could run faster than any of us could keep up. He knew when it was show time. If you let him, he would get in the trailer himself. He loved to go, and always had a look of disappointment on his face if he didn't get to go in the trailer when his buddies did.

Illusion, we couldn't have asked for more in a horse than you provided. Your time here on earth was way too short, but the best things seem to always end way too soon. You will never be forgotten.

The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...
