We are so sad and our hearts are heavy again after losing our beloved Spartan yesterday evening
on June 27, 2020.
He was out in the pasture running around with the other horses and all of the sudden he couldn't walk anymore and could hardly keep himself standing up. We gave him bute right away and called the vet.
The diagnose was devastating but didn't come as a surprise. The bones in his left hind gave out after carrying all of his weight all the time. Spartan was never really able to put weight on his right hind because of his bad stifle.
It wasn't an easy decision but we had to let him go in peace so he wouldn't suffer.
Our baby boy had a wonderful 3 years with us and we did everything to keep him as comfortable as possible during this time.
He had big pastures to roam around in, his horse friends and lots of loving from us.
We will miss watching him being goofy and sticking his nose into everything.
Spartan was picked up to be cremated. Once his ashes return, we will set them free on our ranch.
"We love you so much baby boy! Now you can run like the wind!"
Spartan's ashes were spread together with Trouble's on August 2nd, 2020.
Two best friends returned to earth together.
It was a very sad moment but we are thankful for the time we had with them!
