Mashantum 1986-2011

Mash has traveled to the next world, last week he would not leave his stall, he was in terrible pain and could not walk, I left his door open in case he felt like coming out.

For the the last month he has been declining and every morning I gave him carrots and pain killers, asking him to please let me know when he was ready to move on.  Around noon I notice he had wandered up to the hill where Chleo,  Dutchess and Byron are buried.  He lay down on their graves and slept for several hours.  Mash was telling me it was time.

He passed peacefully and is laid to rest next to his favorite canines.  Mash was a great horse who always made us laugh with his antics and gave me the ride of a lifetime.
