Goodbye to Patrina

Our daughter, Angie, lost one of her horses just recently. Her name was Patrina. She was left on to be cared for by a friend, who didn't know horses. She had roamed freely in pastures, eating grass anytime she wanted. A horse's intake of grass needs to be controlled, so Patrina's health was not the best when Angie got her. But she had a good life here, having two other horses as companions. But her health issues got the best of her, and she was getting old besides. This all worked against her and she didn't pull through. Poor Angie, she takes such good care of her horses and gets quite attached to them. So losing one is never easy. Patrina was a pretty little thing.

We know they don't live forever but we sometimes wish they could.
