This morning when I turned Sunup out he staggered and almost fell. I thought maybe he had had a stroke, but the vet discovered a broken tendon that holds his right hip in place.
Horses are luckier than people... Sunup won't have to suffer with a steel rod in his leg.
Instead he's grazing on tall, sweet grass and cool clear water in horse heaven.
Sunup, American Quarter Horse, Palomino... about 1983 -- 18 October 2013
Vaya con Dios old pal.
