Sy's Shiloh Journey Has Ended...

Very sad news for us all as Sy passed away in the quiet of the night.

Sy was 41 years of age and in good health up until the last month or so when his body began to decline. He was never in pain, he just got weaker. But, right up until yesterday afternoon, he was wandering freely a few hours each day and still eating as much as he wanted.

Some horses touch our hearts more than others- Sy was on of those horses. We will miss his kind and gentle old face. Sy is buried at Shiloh.

Thank you to Helga who made this beautiful Greener Pastures page for him.

Sy and Jill yesterday...

He was eating apples yesterday and whinned for extra pieces. We all were able to spend extra time with this neat old guy.

Rest in Peace Sweet Sy.

I work in rescue and see many horses come and go, but I was a huge Sy fan and this made me cry. RIP, handsome.

RIP Sy, I'm so glad I was given the chance to groom you just 2 days ago.
