    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.
    A man reaches a certain age where he doesn't want any drama.
    He doesn't want to fight with anyone, but if he's forced to he will NOT fight fair, he will NOT quit and there are NO weapons he will not use

    Best to leave him alone with his coffee, bourbon and cigars. Don't poke the old men, they WILL hurt you.

    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!!

    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.

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