THIS IT BE RIGHT, a little reminder
I was going through some old photos today (who knew Yahoo saved all the photos you sent?), and I found this one of Copper and Millie.
Then I realized it was two years ago today that Copper was put to sleep. I can't help but remember, because it's my parents' anniversary.
Before she passed away - Millie died six months before him from the ravages of recurring breast cancer - she had made us promise that no heroics would be entered into vis a vis Copper. She had also, unknown to all of us except the vet, prepaid for him to be cremated.
So that day fateful day two years ago, it became time. You could just tell. And it was a blanket decision: no fannying about trying different crap to keep an almost-35-year-old Thoroughbred going.
This was one of the last photos taken of Copper and Millie together, and I just wanted to share it with you. Well, especially I wanted to share it with Risk-Averse Rider and Mypaintwattie; R-AR being one of the queens of This It Be Right and Wattie now having her beautiful mare Sierra in Copper's stall. Which will, after all, forever be a Special Stall.
Well, I feel like the Trader Joe's commercials now. Thanks for listening.
