    Default RIP a Finger Lakes Finest, Powerful Storm

    It is with great sorrow that I pass along the sad news of the passing of a FLF, Powerful Storm. I know he had some fans here, so I felt it important to let you folks know. He was an amazing horse, eager to learn and always the first to the fence line for a mint. He was really starting to come into his own, and was truly a bright shining star.

    This was the first horse I had to make the decision to euthanize, and although it was heartbreaking, it was the right thing to do. He was sick for only a few days, was in the best of hands to aid his fight and recovery, but some things are just out of our hands. I couldn't let him suffer. His pasture mate, my other OTTB, just gave me huge hugs. Sometimes they just know.

    TMC,

    Hugs from afar: it's never an easy call but when it is made with their welfare foremost in mind, it is always the right one, just painful for the human.

    I'm so so sorry. It sounds like he loved the life you gave him as much as you loved him. But it's still so sad.
