It is sad. He was a lovely horse that I am proud to have bred. He hadn't done much, but was sensible and intelligent. It was a shock as no one expected him to go. We are guessing a heart attack as it was a sudden death after about a week of being unwell. What blew me away so much is that he got out of his pen (one strand of electric tape) and came to see us to say goodbye. This is the horse that didn't want to walk for days before his death, the horse that doesn't escape unless his sister starts the mischief. It was about 10pm and we were sitting outside in the dark, and he just walks up out of the blue, spends about 20 mins with us, and then dies.
He is now buried next to our darling Nissa, where he will rest in peace and be fondly remembered.
