I've been absent from the donkey blog, in part, because my mind has been obsessively focused on the big boy of the family, my horse Natural.
My sweet sweet boy, who's 30 years old, and has been with me for 24 of them, is feeling his age, and not doing well. I'm constantly mentally reassessing what my options are and trying to second guess decisions. I know, not good. I just wrote to a friend that some small part of me irrationally believed he'd live forever.
Oh dear, I'm tearing up. Must go.
Please send him your good thoughts.
