^ I'll have to look that up. Never heard of it. Luckily, I think I'm doing pretty well. Since I sold her 3 years ago, I've seen her quite a few times but as any horse person knows, it's not as hard when you do not own them anymore. Believe me, I cried alot. But now, I think I'm more focused on celebrating her short life and putting what she taught me into action. She taught me how to really *ride* sensitive horses in dressage. It was a blessing to have the opportunity to ride a horse like that.

I'm more worried about her owner. She is having a very hard time dealing with the fact that a horse has died under her supervision. I keep telling her that Murphy was probably at a predisposition to colic because of her sensitive stomach and since she hadn't ever had any health problems before, not even a vet could have predicted this. She feels horrible but she is slowly but surely getting better with the grief.

It's been a hard month. A horsey acquaintance of mine recently lost her rescue to colic and another lost her therapy horse to pneumonia. And now Murphy. NO MORE HORSE DEATHS! I don't think we can handle another one.

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR
