Febuary 14, 2009 my husband and I bought three horses. One of them was my Ginger. She was a 10 year old sorrel quarter horse mare. Sadly she was Very under weight. I worked with her to help her gain the weight, but it seemed that she gained it very slowly. I had the vet check her and he said that it would take a while and it wouldn't happen overnight.
Sadly lastnight around 7:00pm CST she passed away of what appeared to be a stroke.
Gin helped me in so many ways that I can't explain. (I suffer from depression) and she helped me come out of one of the depressive episodes without the help of the pills, she just llistened to me talk and let me hug her while I cried.
Whe my Aunt passed away from cancer, Gin once again helped me through.
She was my light at the end of the tunnel. She will be greatly missed.
My mother told me that she came along in time to help me through a rough time in my life, and now it was time for both of us to move on in our own directions. I want to ride in playdays again, and she wasn't going to be able to do that with all the problems she had from being so thin for so long.
I will miss her greatly but appreaciate what she did for me.
