Rest In Peace, Klassy.
This is Klassy, a 30+ year old mare .
Such a pretty girl.
She has bad arthritis, and cannot be ridden. She is a very sweet mare, and would make a great pasture mate.
Klassy was 31 years old in 2009. She led a good life at Hope In The Valley, she was fat and happy, but in pain and getting around was a challenge.
We decided it was time to send her over the Rainbow Bridge before the cold weather set in because she would suffer more. Lisa took her to the vet to have her humanely put down in July of 2010. This has been hard for all of us. Sometimes the best things for the animals are the hardest things on us who love them. We'll miss you Klassy.
