Not Just Old Age: Why Do Senior Horses Die?
This article in The Horse made me think about Harv. Judging from the article most old horses succumb to digestive disorders. Harv, I will say, was done in by the neuro condition.
I dreamed of Harv a few weeks ago -- nothing dramatic, I was walking him around the perimeter of an indoor arena while kids played with ponies in the center. Not a barn/arena I recognize, it was larger than most I've ever used. At one point I hugged him and it was a very good hug. When I woke I had just a vague recollection of the particulars, but being close to Harv felt very real.
