Stretch

Hi All,
Sorry to be MIA.

We lost poor Stretch.

Whatever was nagging at him inside was bigger and badder than any antibiotic, hug, love, or vet team on the planet.  His owner made the horribly difficult decision to let him go peacefully and comfortably.

He was one tough horse and he tried so hard to beat his condition. 

He was also one very very gorgeous horse.  What a pretty boy.  Java and Sugar somehow understood that Stretch was sick and they are doing fine.  Stretch's owner is still understandably devastated.

We love you Mr. Stretch:


Now that I've dropped that bomb of news you on, I'll be back to regular updates.

So sorry to hear about Stretch. :( It's never an easy decision, but usually the right one for our horses. Well wishes to all who loved Stretch.

So sorry about Stretch, he was definitely a fighter. It is never easy to make "the" decision.

Hey Guys, thanks for the nice words and thoughts. The hardest part has been seeing how hard this has been for his owner. It was a long tough road to try to save him. I at least know he was spoiled and loved and he definetly knew that.
