    Default The Loss of a Friend.



    It is with sadness that I announce the passing of our pony, Cinnamon. Bought as a Christmas gift for the daughter, she became a "Pasture Rat" who's only duties were to look pretty.

    She left us this morning quickly and peacefully, somewhere around the age of 40 years.

    Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge Lass.

    And he lived happily ever after.

    I'm Sorry to hear, that sucks. That's a long time to have a friend around. May she rest in peace in the pasture with all of the other horses!!

    I'm so sorry for your family's loss. She was beautiful.

    Sorry, Bilgie... losing a pet is pretty harsh, especially a 40-year old family member.

    Good ponies are a godsend for children to have in their life. Sad for your loss.

    I'm sorry, Bilge. I know how sad that can be.

    Very sorry for your loss.
    I had no idea about their longevity.
    God bless.
