Rachel went back to horse back riding yesterday. It was the first day back after the holidays. We were saddened to learn that the horse she always rode had to be put down on December 22. He was 32 years old and had gone down in the wet muddy field. Due to his old joints and arthritis, he was not able to get back up. When someone found him, he was hypothermic and his heart rate was too slow. At 32, the vet felt he was too far gone to pull out of it. So sad. We will miss you Flip!
