It’s been a sad few days here. My beautiful mare Holley colicked and had to be euthanized on Monday night. She was 27, which is a good long life for a horse. She touched a lot of lives besides mine. Here’s a few shots of her:
eating – her favorite pastime,
patiently modeling knitwear,
winning a medal at the Special Olympics,
and letting my nephew think he was leading her.
You never saw a horse more careful of children. I loved introducing kids to the world of the horse with Ms. Holley.
I’m going to miss having her in my life. It’s been a wonderful ride.
