At 2pm this afternoon Gringo was laid to rest. He was surrounded by people that loved him dearly as he peacefully fell asleep. It feels very empty here at Casa and I don't know how long it will take before any of us can walk past his pasture without shedding a tear. Although I had just met Gringo I could tell that he was happy and well taken care of. For the past few days we would not walk past him without offering a treat of some sort. I learned that he loved cantaloupe and freshly made honey muffins but hated cucumber and that if I had an apple he would run towards me but only meander if it was a lowly carrot. It's very quiet here this evening and you can feel the sadness all around as we grieve for our lost friend. R.I.P. Gringo, you were a wonderful horse and lived a long and wonderful life.
