    Putting down an old mare, or thinking about it.

    Went to bury a horse one time, got there he was still alive, I put him down , But I cut his tail off and took it up to the cemetery and put in under my son's headstone. He had hung on it while we were on a pack trip in the high country. the trail was so steep it was easer to walk .
