Mom's Horse Koko had to be put down on Wed Sept 16th. Technically she was Moms horse but her Dad actually took care of her.
Koko was 36 years old. She had a parter Goldie who died about 10 years ago. Koko was like Moms "big sister" in that Koko was in the family before Mom was born. Grandpa had gotten Koko when she was just 18 months old.
Luckily she got sick and had neurological problems for only about a week. The vet said she woudln't get better and was in some pain. Grandpa didn't want her to suffer. She was put down and then later that day Grandpa and some friends got a backhoe and buried her in the pasture. She was buried with her favorite treat that Grandpa would bring her every day, two banannas.
I got to meet Koko once when Mom took me out in the hills. Koko almost punted me like a football. Not on purpose of course.
We'll miss you old gal. We hope you are up there with Goldie eating grass, frolicing around and getting lots and lots of banannas.
