I lost my big, beautiful paint mare Babe on December 5, 2013.

I had just turned her out on the 350 acre pasture where her two buddies, Johnny and Windy had been with 3 of Jorge's horses since spring, just a week earlier.
She was very happy to be back with her buddies, and probably thought she had died and gone to the range in Heaven....she was SO happy to be there with her buddies!

I found her lying on the outside of the fence, when I went out to check the calves and take bales of alflafa out to the horses. We will never know for sure exactly what happened to her, but the therory is that something spooked the horses the night before and Babe ran into the fence and impaled herself on a T post. A friend of ours that is a trapper for this area, said it very well could have been a mountain lion that spooked them.

I just pray that she did not suffer very long. Sad

I am absolutely heartbroken about loosing my precious Babe.
I felt so comfortable on her, I trusted her, she took good care of me.
She was a one in a million horse, and such a pretty mare, too.

Rest in peace sweet Babe, we miss you.

This is horrible Janell. I am so sorry. Having lost a horse due to a fence accident I know your pain. She was such gorgeous and loyal friend to you. She loved you and is sharing stories with Little Bit now.

Thank you Debi. Smile

I still miss my big girl

I see that her cross is still standing, I thought the other horses might use it as a scratchin' post, but I don't think they really get down to that end of the pasture much.....sure wish they had not been down there the night Babe was killed. Crying or Very sad
