    Cissy Moved Onto Greener Pastures :-(

    Well today was the first time I've ever had to have a horse put to rest. My first horse to boot. Cissy was twenty-seven. She had been doing good until the last couple years. She aged quickly and what was already a hard keeper turned into an almost impossible keeper. She had been getting almost ten pounds of grain twice a day and free choice grass hay. She gained weight back for a little while and then went back down hill. I figured it was her time to pass on.

    It was definitely more difficult than I thought it would be. My other mare, JuniorMiss isn't taking it well at all. She's been with Cissy for sixteen years herself. I'm positive Cissy was like her "mother" or best friend. Anyway, these are some pictures through out the years. Thank you for looking.

    What she did best.

    Late Summer.

    What a beautiful girl she was! Those are lovely pictures-she certainly seems to have had a long, full and happy life with you. Many, many {{hugs}} to you (and to Junior Miss)

    Thank you. She was a great horse. When we first got her she was suppose to be a "kids horse". She WASN'T even close to that. She came off the track and had an attitude problem. She thought she was queen bee from the get go. She was a pain in the butt to catch too.

    My mom had a friend ride her a few times. She would lay down with him on her. Everyone told her she'd kill one of us kids. So my dad built a round pen and I started there to get her attention. It wasn't too long until I was riding her. As more time was put on her the better she got. She was at a point that as I long as I rode her all winter come show season anyone could ride her.

    Every spring she would always have to test you and try to unload you. She also liked trying to buffalo you by pinning her ears back. As she got older she learned to love chasing Junior off to be brushed or scratched. It was easy to make her lift her lip. Just barely touch the under side of her lip and she'd be showing the world her tattoo. Lol

    She's in a better place now and I know she'll stay fat and sassy now. Thank you everyone for the replies. I truly appreciate it.

    This is poor Junior looking for her best friend. I have to hear it all day and night for awhile. Makes me sad.

    -- I think that is the hardest part of a loss like this....when there is an animal companion left behind to mourn.

    What a lovely girl she was. My deepest, most heartfelt condolences on your loss.

    It doesn't matter how long we have them, there's never enough time.
