One of my very favorite mares at a neighbors farm let everyone know she was just too tired to make it through another winter. She was 34 and produced so many great race babies. They turned her out with her herd for her last sunrise and I photographed it for them .She was well loved her entire life.
As breeders we deal with this more often than any other group of horsemen and thought you might like these images. They let her go later that morning. It was a glorious sunrise... http://smilebox.com/playBlog/4e544d7...344f513d3d0d0a
What a nice tribute and beautiful pictures! I imagine the bridge will look something like it. We've had some really nice sunsets here but I never get to see sunrise. I feed before dawn and am getting ready for work when the sun actually comes up. Going to have to try to catch more of them.
What a wonderful tribute to an old mare. I wish all would love their horses that much. Made me cry as I have a 31 year old Trakehner lady and we may have to face the way to the Rainbow Bridge sooner or later too.
