As she said, 26 is a ripe old age for a horse. It is natural when they pass on at that age (I say, trying to convince myself with my 26 year old in the backyard. I will just die when he dies).

Poor thing, with everything going on in her professional life, getting ready to be a mother, and now this. I do feel for her.

Godspeed, Gigolo. What an amazing horse. My condolences to Isabell and his owners...and pasturemate Fabienne. At the very least he experienced a retirement that all sport horses should get.

Thank you for that. Also, on the same page is Astrid's column on Patrick Swayze. Interesting info.
