A very sad day
Hi everyone. This post is going to be a short one. I actually debated on even posting but I thought I have shared news about my horses before, so maybe I should share my sad news about my best friend. On Saturday morning my honey headed down to the barn for the morning feeding. He came running back up to the house and said, " Dani you better get down here". So I threw on a coat and raced down to the barn. My wonderful, awesome, best friend in the world, Shadow, was on the ground and things were not good. After working with Shadow for an hour, I called my vet Steve and told him you better get here as fast as you can. Steve was pretty far across the state but here got there about three hours later. So, my friend passed away at 2 in the afternoon. I know he was old, around 25 years old, but that horse was my love and certainly the horse of my childhood dreams. As he lay there with his beautiful head in my lap, all I could do was cry and tell him how much I loved him. I know this last year has been a tough one for him but I really thought we had a little more time. I guess we always think that. So I will end this here because I am crying again. Here is a great photograph taken this summer of my buddy and I playing in the turn out. Shadow, I love you.
