Goodbye to Pawney

What a week this has been!

It all started this past Sunday ...
the Cowboys called to say one of our miniature ponies, Pawney, died.
 We aren't sure what happened to him. He wasn't sick or sluggish or old. He had no noticeable symptoms of any kind. Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning he died. Most likely it was colic, which is an abdominal issue where the gut can twist and the circulation cuts off causing death.  Since it happened in the night we didn't see any symptoms.

Pawney was quite the "man" he looked after his girls, Sheba and Suzy, all day everyday. He was never too far from them whether in the pasture or in the barn. When I was leaving the Ranch Sunday morning I saw him laying down on his side but I had no idea he was already gone. I even made mention to Megan that I didn't like when the horses lay down because it always worries me. Sheba and Suzy were standing right by him and never left his side. Even after he was buried they stood in the spot where he died for two days.


I went out to the pastures to check on Daisy, our beloved cow, who is more like a pet than a cow, but couldn't find her in the open area.  I stumbled upon our new bull calf laying so sweetly in the warm sun.  As I stepped on the dry crackling grass my heart sunk because with each step it didn't seem to startle him. I saw no movement even as I got within 5 feet of him. 

I feared the worst.

I kneeled down to take a closer look and decided to record the event by taking a picture, as the shutter click-clicked he opened his eyes and jumped up like lightning struck!

I don't know who was more frightened, me or him. I do know that I was the happy one because he was only taking an afternoon nap.

What a beauty he is.

Sleeping peacefully...with eyes slightly open and tip of tongue hanging out.

Jumping up!

Checking me out from a safe distance.

Used to me now. 
Isn't he cute!!!
