Smoke is leaving us.

Those of you that have been here know my old mare Smoke. She's the one that always has an orphan following her or a kid on her back. She's the one the boys grab when its time to move cows or go to a jackpot. She's the mother of my rope horse, my ranch horse, and my best broodmare. She's an own daughter of Smokum Oak. And has 9 hall of famers on her pedigree. She's my right arm & has a big piece of my heart. I owe this mare a lot. and the best gift I can give her is to let her go with dignity. Smoke started down hill when she was in with the other mares, I thought they were just pushing her around and brought her in to pamper. I had tests done just to be safe. Thinking "shes just old and needs some extra attention. No, My girl has cancer. I cried like a baby when I got the news. She will be put down next week & buried under her favorite tree. where future generations might pick up a little of her essence. I owe her the honor of not letting her suffer and to humanely lay her to rest with dignity and thanks for a lifetime of memories, Please, if you have a favorite horse make a donation to the AQHA retirement fund or an equine retirement facility near you. I promise to tell you when its all over and introduce you to her daughter Parkers Whisp of Smoke when you come to the farm. She's a great filly and will do her mama proud!

Oh, Megan, your news is heart-wrenching. I know how much you love Smoke. This will be a very painful time for you. I wish I could be there to give you a hug and cry with you. Please know that my prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear of your impending loss. My mare Sara is a Morgan with a pedigree full of notables and stock used when the US bred its own calvary horses. I got her when I was 12 and she was 6, she's a healthy 25 now and I've spend so much of my life on her back I even got engaged to my farmer husband there! The best ones will never leave your heart...
