I lost a dear friend this week.

Our beautiful friend, Shadow, died suddenly this week. She was running around frisky on Monday. We rode her last Friday and she was very perky. Fat, happy, good appetite, in great shape. The first picture was taken Friday. The second picture was taken in the summer. The last picture was taken last week.

She would have been 30 years old in a few weeks.

She will be missed. Her heart just quit.

Carpe Diem!

I'm sorry to see this, she's gorgeous. She looks very happy though and I have no doubt that her long life was a good one with you.

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

My deepest, most heartfelt condolences, Celeste. It's so hard to lose them, especially the old friends we've had for many years.

She had a good, long life and went quickly. May we all be so blessed.

Godspeed, good mare.

I'm so sorry. She is beautiful. I hope you can find solace in the fact that she had a great life and did not suffer from a prolonged illness. She was lucky to have you as an owner.
