RIP Roany <3

About a week ago, Roany, one of my favorite horses in the barn passed away. He was 41 years old and still going strong as a lesson pony. He led quite the life! He was a ranch horse, a team penning (I think thats what it's called, my mind is drawing a blank) horse, and a pony for racehorses before he came to the barn. He could have done more, thats just all we knew about him. I'm gonna miss the old guy! :(
He saved a little girls life not long before he passed (more of a didn't kill her than saved her, but still!).
I can only find two pics right now, I'll have to look for some more later.

Wow, 41 years old.....he lived a long life....It's hard to lose something that's been here that long....sorry.
Corporal and KigerQueen like this.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

he looks like as a human he'd be the sweet old man that loves kids and who kids love, with the corny jokes and amazing stories, of course living as long as he did he probably did have some great stories! RIP Roany you deserve it.

41 years... That's incredible! Sounds like he lived an awesome life.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
