good boy Friday


my favorite picture
Losing them is so very hard.

My good friend C had watched her good boy Friday get more blind and deaf, and while he physically looked OK from a distance (he still had an amazing, glorious trot!) he was falling apart. We talked and worried about winter, and rain, and what if he fell, or spooked into someone he couldn't see and hurt them (he was never the bravest anyway, make worse by his failing sight and hearing).

She did the hardest, best thing. She let him go on a beautiful fall day, before cold winter set in, and he did not have many bad days. He was Major’s best friend, and it is so very hard to have them gone. We had so many awesome adventures, and they are so loved.

  1. Oh these are the most difficult of decisions. But how lucky we are to have them in our lives. 🥰

  2. Friday was such a great horse. Hard and best decisions…sigh. Please tell C I’m thinking of her.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear this, and I appreciate the photos of them together. Together always, if they so choose! No fences in heaven.
