quietann: (Trump)
[personal profile] quietann
J called me this afternoon, while I was waiting for Dad's prescription, to tell me she had to have Trump euthanized this morning. He had some unknown issue that seemed like colic but wasn't, and he was in a lot of pain. I had not seen him in a while and now I regret it.

Trump let me fly:

Trump got me through my first and only horse trials:

(more photos from that event at http://quietann.livejournal.com/554716.html)

I fell off Trump and got badly hurt, but it wasn't his fault. I fainted, and fell off, and poor scared Trump ran back to the barn. And when I was ready to start riding again, he took care of me:

Trump was Feronia's trailer buddy when she really needed one:

Trump kept Feronia and me company for a little while when Feronia was hurt:

Trump was the first horse I ever hacked out on my own, and he was awesome.

Trump hated water:

Trump liked hugs:

I miss him....

I am sorry for your loss. It looks like he was a great teacher.

He was, that. Not a horse for a rank beginner, on account of a couple of odd quirks, but he was awesome for me.

I am so sorry for your loss.

In other news- C clipped that comic out of the paper for me after I almost drowned Ozzy. I can't believe you've seen it too!
