Our last farewell to Troy

There is great sadness in our household at the moment. My granddaughter's pet horse who has been a constant and dear companion for her for several years passed away Tuesday morning. We had hoped that he would live to a ripe old age grazing in the paddock. It wasn't to be after spending a disturbing and harrowing night with the vet, he slipped away with his head cradled on her lap. Troy has been a part of our family for so long, it is going to be hard to imagine life without him. We are all devastated. Even his companion Cal (His stable mate & her other horse) is grieving. My thoughts and love are with her now. RIP Troy
