So, this has been a bittersweet week-end in Arizona..my brother’s horses were given to the local vet..he will work Choppo,
...continuing his voice commands and riding. Larry trusted this vet and liked him as well, so we know Choppo will be happy and loved.
Time has come for Tomato to say good-bye. It's sooo hard for a horse owner to decide when the horses’ quality of life is at the point that something needs to be done.
Well, the decision had to be made and so the Mighty Tomato is probably lookin’ around right now for Larry..hopefully they will find each other..
To place your horse's need for you to let him leave his failing body above your need to keep him with you - that - is the greatest and purest love.
