Rest In Peace, Captain.
Captain was a very nice dark bay gelding. He was nearing 20 [in 2009] when he was seized from his owner due to neglect.
He was gaining weight and coming along nicely when one morning, a week after receiving some brutal kicks from others in the herd, Ande found him on his side in his pen unable to rise.
She struggled to help him get up, but was unable to roll him over. Ande knew "He was in pain and suffering so, although the decision to send him over the Rainbow Bridge was a very hard one, it was the right one for him." Dr. Kiser arrived soon thereafter and euthanized him. The date was April 19, 2010.
