REST IN PEACE ...PONY
Pony was put down at Midnight. Here she was on Monday morning, looking her perky self. You just don't know what is going to happen on any given day. There was no way she was going to come out of this colic. So, I turned all the horses out with her around 11 and they went into the indoor. As lousy as she felt, she would not leave Mustafa's side and was showing a gigantic heat. What a way to go. When Dr. Dwyer got here, Pony picked out a spot and went down under one of the overhead lights in the indoor. She must have been ready to go....and made it as peaceful as possible for us. She would have been 31 in a few months, and we had her for 30 of those years. It won't be the same when I do chores in the morning.
Thanks to all of you who wished her well.
