I am very sad to tell you that Tarbaby died this morning. We let him and Grace out for a while in the arena.......They both rolled in the sand, played a little, then Grace was tired....but Tarbaby continued to buck, rear and play....... he came running up to the stall, reared and then fell over ...already dying. I got to him, he whinnied a little and then passed away. I have not cried so hard in such a long time......like losing your friend.
We have loved him for the past year and a half....we will miss him. He has been the horse that has kept me going when I thought I couldn't do it anymore. He sang for his grain slop each morning and it always lifted my spirits to hear him sing his "give me grain" song.
For those of you who asked, Tarbaby was 25'ish, perhaps a little older. A Thoroughbred, tattoed and very handsome...of course, love is blind, so if he had any conformation faults......we didn't see them.
RIP Tarbaby....you were a good boy.
Thank you Mary and Jason for the help this morning.
