He was an absolutely beautiful boy. On these sad forums I can't help but mention my beloved first pony, Shotzy, that died at the "spring" age of 38 (In human years) when something ruptured. It's so sad ): I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope you feel better soon. Its especially hard when they had signs that you could've noticed and that could've made you save them. I'm truly sorry for your loss ):

Never sell your saddle, cause' lifes a long ride

Sorry to hear about your loss. There is NOTHING you could have done, even if you'd know about the cancer earlier.

this is a lovely photo, and when I am caught up on other work, I would love to draw or paint it.

Logically I know that we couldn't have saved him, but the back of my mind just keeps asking 'how could we have helped him?' even if it was just putting him down earlier. The vet did tell us though, that he probably did not start hurting until a few weeks ago as the tumors began to cut off circulation in his intestines. We allowed them to do an autopsy in hopes of helping other horses like him, and they said that over 1/3 of his large intestines had already died and begun to decay. The stench when they drained his stomach and intestines on the night of his colicing was horrid, so I can definitely see that being true.

TinyLiny, that would be wonderful. If you're willing, I would like to buy it from you as a gift to his sweet young rider. She's really taking his hard, as he was in her words 'the best friend that any girl could have.' Those two had a remarkable bond.

Now begins our search for another horse to take his place in our lesson program. I hate to start so quickly, but being an advanced AND beginners lesson horse, having him gone will leave a very large hole in our lesson program.

I would love to take in another OTTB, but unfortunately we will need a horse much before the year that it generally takes me to get a horse 'lesson ready' so I'll have to settle for something else. I'm thinking perhaps an OTTB that has already had some retraining done. Our farm has a bit of a soft spot for those guys.

Thank you. I am sure that he's having a wonderful time now, galloping around without pain or any of his least favorite animals in the world- cows- to bother him!

the very definition for me. Run free, Noah. Run pain free. Run worry free. Run fast. Run like you'll never stop. Run. Nothing can hurt you now, dear boy. Rest and graze forever safe, over the rainbow bridge. Goodbye, Noah, you were so very loved.
