It is with great sadness that I must tell of the passing of our lovely mare, Little Miss Porter.
As you all know, Porter's health has been in decline for a year. Recently, she stopped eating and over the past few months, she repeated a pattern of eating just enough to stay alive or not eating at all.
Last week, I was forced to make a decision. While Porter wasn't in any pain, it was obvious that there was no quality left to her life. She became weaker by the day, spent most of her time alone, just hanging her head.
There was nothing left, not in her eyes, not in her heart.
So we said good bye today, just after lunch time.
Godspeed, Porter, you are loved. See you on the other side.
