... for a couple of days...

I lost my beautiful goofball, Gilder, last night. He presented signs of colic, but when the vet came out it was determined that he had a really bad heart murmur. Not all of the blood was being pumped through his heart. The vet said he could have lasted another week or two, but what would be the point? We said goodbye, and he's no longer in pain.

Gilder was the son of Smile, the 1986 Breeders Cup Sprint winner, and the grandson of Fappiano, the wonderful New York champion bred and owned by John Nerud. He was born February 2, 1991... he was 23.

I am still in shock. This was definitely a surprise most unpleasant.

If you email or message me, I'll return your message. Just not sure how much I'm going to be "connected" in the next couple of days. Thanks for your patience.

Empty stall pain is so very very hard. Thinking of you.

Thank you... thank you all so much!

It's very strange. Gilder's stall is empty, all the bedding is out. We gave away the hay, straw, and pellet bedding. I've started washing all his sheets and blankets (I swear: he had a better wardrobe than I do!) to either put or give away.

The barn is so quiet.
