RIP Constanza, aka "Granny"

A fellow boarder's 36 yo quarter horse mare passed away late yesterday night, surrounded by the people who loved her. She was a sweet old thing and I feel honoured to have been present on her very last trailride. She was so full of life and spirit, it's hard to fathom that that ride was barely two weeks ago. Everyone is going to miss her so much...most of all her owner and partner of thirty years. Thirty years! It'll be a bittersweet Christmas this year for that poor woman. At the very least, she has her old mare's beautiful granddaughter.

Just wanted to write a little something. It won't be the same not seeing her there anymore.

Rest in peace old girl. I'm sure you're up there in the big meadow in the sky, galloping those endless plains where the wind is warm and the grass is sweet.

Very sorry to hear that, loosing a horse or any animal is hard, especially if she had the horse for thirty years. But remember she also has thirty years of memories to help her make it through this hard time. my thoughts go out to both of you.

aww that is so sad, 36 is a good ol' age for a horse though!

Wow, 36! That's nothing to be sad about :)! Regardless though, it's never easy losing an animal. I'm sure she has tons of wonderful memories with this mare though to get her through. My old boy is turning 30 in January. I sure hope he makes it to 36!

I'm very sorry for your loss at least you know she lived a long healthy life and had people around her that loved and cared for her when she went.
