Sad Day

Goodbye Old Man.

I will be forever in your debt. You were the kindest tutor I ever had. The most generous of spirit. The most giving of souls. The final decision I had to make on your behalf was by far, one of the most painful I have ever made. I am privileged to have kept you company thus far. Thank you.

On Tuesday morning, JK Rodin was put to sleep after suffering a broken leg in his paddock at home. He was 23 years old. He will be missed.

What a shame. He was a lovely animal. I hope he has some foals due this summer. He didn't get nearly enough mares.
