Saying Goodbye to Eddie (the horse)
After 25 years of riding mountains, parades, horse shows, taking relatives for rides I had to say goodbye to my buddy. At 31 years of age he was ready to go to the big pasture in the sky. A super hard decision to make but like all our loved animals it is our responsibility to know when to release them. When my husband and I married I explained to him he had to get a horse if he wanted to hang with me. So he got Eddie. He had quite a few misadventures with him (read bucked off) but eventually they became good partners. It wasn’t long before I got really attached to him and started using him as my own horse and saw how very talented he was. There was nothing he wouldn’t do. As he got older he developed Cushing’s disease and ground down his teeth so he couldn’t eat hay only soft pellets. I had the vet come out and he had a peaceful death and lives next to an old buddy that died several years ago. Run free my sweet Eddie.
