Hug Your Pony Today

We had a tough day at the barn yesterday. We lost a horse to the dreaded twisted gut.

In the 3 years she owned him, Leo took his teenage owner from starting over itty bitty jumps to winning a pre-training event this past summer. He was almost 7 years old. His family will be heartbroken over the sudden loss.

I hope Leo is in a big grassy field, with lots of space to gallop and all the fence posts to crib on that he wants.

Remember to hug your ponies. These fragile creatures sometimes leave our lives far sooner than we want them to.


  1. aw that's so sad! my condolences to the family :(

  2. gah - how completely devastating :(

    so sorry for their loss. serves as a good reminder just how fragile these creatures are and to take their presence as a gift <3

  3. That is so sad. That poor girl. Please tell her that we are thinking of her and her family.

  4. Ugh my condolences to all connected with Leo - especially his girl.
