He was slow, but steady. Danny was
also my parade horse and I quite often would move to
the side so the children could pat him. He loved kids; our
grandchildren would always hop on him bareback. Our son, Bob, felt
he owned him while on his visits here to ride Danny on Poker Rides
and work on trails.
We have had many horses in the past that
were euthanized, but never one that had been with us for so many
years that had been so versatile. Danny had gone through a very bad
episode of founder late this summer and his x-rays proved there was
serious damage and it was obvious he would never be comfortable. So
ends Danny’s adventures with us, but we have all the memories of our
wonderful four-legged friend. I am sure that the kids in heaven are
hopping on his back and laughing with glee. How lucky they are.
