a very sad day

It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to Teresa's old horses... Nutty (the one with the white blaze) and Ransom (the appie). This has been a very hard decision for Teresa to make, but for those of us who have loved pets, we can understand the greater love it takes when it is time to say goodbye. Ransom hasn't been feeling well for some time, Nutty was in better health, but with both of them being well into their 30's it basically was a matter of time. They had lived together for almost 25 years, so Teresa knew that if she had to say goodbye to one, it would be in their best interest to say goodbye to both.
Today, God has two more horses in his green pasture..... running fast, grazing on good grass and finding sweet apples to eat. And we will miss their gentle presence.
