    I just lost my old mare at the age of 35. We had to euthanize her, though not because she was gravely ill - she kept getting abscesses, and trimming her even was becoming too difficult.

    My old mare (who lived until the age of 35) would just about fall to the ground if you rubbed her tummy. Lips twitching, eyes closed, legs buckled...

    It was quite the sight!

    Alright!!!

    So said donkey, now we'll call her Rue, was fantastic! Owner said she'd done clicker training, so I just decided to go with my gut and play it by ear. At first she was bucking, shying...
