My mare Bella... She's 28

I am sure most of you are familiar with Bella, or maybe my daughters pony Teddy. Bella is has had a rough couple months, she has cancer, and we are now planning our goodbyes. It will be before Christmas. I took pictures the other day, she was feeling better because she was on bute. She recently got her hair caught on a fence and the maintenance guy cut her free... then he gave her a HORRIBLE hair cut, so I decided to give her a mohawk...









She was really tired... she fell asleep shortly after I started brushing her.

She looks like a very sweet mare who has had a long happy life filled with fond memories. I'm sure if she could talk she would thank you for caring for her.

We she has tumors, they are actually malignant, but they have blocked her rectum and she can hardly pass anything... and they're inoperable. Thank you for your kind words...

Thank you. Yes she is very loved and will be greatly missed. She was my first horse, and I even divorce my husband because he wanted to sell her lol. She was always worth it. She was my best friend for so long, I just don't know what it's going to be like without her here.
