I'm taking a blogging break to mourn the tragic death of my beautiful chestnut mare, Beauty. She died on unknown causes in her corral on June 25, 2009. I found her the next morning, dead. I couldn't afford an autopsy on her AND the removal fee, so to this day I don't know what killed her and it just makes me so sad to not know. Heart attack? She didn't struggle and was found in a corner of her corral by me the next morning. It hardly seems appropriate to talk about sunflowers now that she is gone. Thank you for your consideration. I MISS YOU, my beautiful one!
