I'm trying to stay upbeat and positive this new year, really, but tonight I'm sad. I had to put Tiki down. He got cast (fell and couldn't get up without falling again) for the second time in a week. He's been arthritic for a long time. You may remember when I retired him.
Now, dear Tiki, who taught me to jump courses, who took me to my first dressage show, who loved me so unconditionally and was there for me through so many, many bad times, is gone. I miss him already.
