Just just old age: Article alert!

New article from The Horse Magazine: 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.


  1. Good for you! You made connection, let it happen & enjoyed it. These things can be important, valuable. Happy for you...

  2. A very interesting article indeed. It sounds like you had a special moment where you remembered your lovely horse.

    Best wishes.
    Keep Calm and start writing
