Now he lay down to sleep
gaiting upwards to heaven's horse gate,
for God to keep

Poor Cactus. He had another bout with pneumonia and was just too old to fight it off this time.
We had no choice but to put him down on 1/11/2012.  This process is not often easy with horses because of their size.
But Cactus was already down when the vet gave him the shot.   He just laid his head on my knees and expired with dignity.

We cried and cried. It hurt so much!

He had several of his human friends, as well as his stable mates, surrounding him at the time. And this photo that our friend Wendy took, says it all.

Here is his stable mates looking off in the distance where they last saw Cactus being carried away to his grave in the woodland.
The tractor had long since passed behind the pastures, but they kept looking where they last saw him pass anyway.

I miss my friend.


From Frank & Deb to Marilyn... Thank you so much for your care of Cactus, day in and day out.
And to Wendy... Thank you also, so much for allowing me to use your photo.
