Sharing Sorrow

Dear Reader,

The black colt in this picture is Tony.  He died from internal injuries when he was kicked by another horse on Dec. 26.  I was with him when he died.  He was not in any pain. This picture was taken back in September, when he was three months old.  He willingly obeyed his mother.  But he would leave his mother to follow me.  He would ask her first, she always gave him permission and then he would lead with out even a lead rope.  The loss is heart breaking.  He was our stallion prospect.  He was smart, gentle and very easy to train.  I will breed his dam again and hope for another colt like Tony.  Tony's sire is my Mississippi Mud Slinger.  Thank you for reading this.  If your heart is tender, please pray that God will give us another Tony.

Thank you,

Penny Johnson

  4. Penny, I'm sorry for your loss of a very nice colt.

  5. Penny, so sorry to hear of your loss. I know you put alot of passion into producing such a colt.

    You can certainly elaborate more about your admiration for this colt on your personal blog and add a link from here.

    You are right. I will keep to RAC activities of this year.

  7. Penny,
    Having lost a foal last year I share your feelings. Once I healed I found I appreciated my Curlies more than ever,
