As everyone at the farm probably knows by now, we had to let Pete go…he was losing his battle with EPM and it seemed like the only fair thing to do.
We got him 20 years ago from some people who had lost interest in riding him. He was just living at the back of their property, with nothing to do, with no training or any real experience. But he was a beautiful, kind horse and it seemed to us that it would be worth it to take a chance on him.
Maybe my friend Sarah said it best. When I told her of our decision she replied:
“He turned out to be one hell of a horse for a back yard pony. Sweet, beautiful Pete.”
Couldn’t say it better myself.
