My good dun gelding, Vegas, was struck by lightning last Saturday night. He had been on loan to a good friend for a little over a year for his son's to ride. I am not sure but I think they are 8 and 6. I felt terrible for their family, as attached as I was to Vegas, they dearly loved him. The family didn't have any horse that the boys were comfortable riding, so I offered Vegas. Those two boys had a lot of first on him. I am sure proud of what Vegas did for them, at least now they have enough confidence and desire that they will be able to ride something else.
Im sorry for yours and the boys loss. Sending prayers.
First thing I though while reading was His job was done and it was time for him to go home.
