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.
Pretty Head..Just No Forelock!
Cissy this past winter.
