After at least 23 years in this lifetime, Ruth passed with ease and grace on June 25th, 2024. She was a wise warrior and a grateful old soul who knew she was well loved. If her pumpkin seeds were missing from her morning’s supplement bowl, she would bray and storm around the stall until she got exactly what she wanted. Her latest x-rays proved that Ruth’s deteriorating foot problems were bad, but worse were her pastern bone joints. They were misaligned in addition to being worn down to bone on bone. Our decision was clearly to end her pain without prolonging her suffering.

We will miss her and those champion ears forever.
