If you've owned horses for any length of time, you've probably also had to let one go. Maybe to greener pastures, maybe to retirement, or maybe just to a home that isn't yours. I've lost two horses in my lifetime and let others go on with someone else. It's never easy.
I think Cuna's passing struck me more than most because it was at nearly this same time a few years ago that I lost my best and favorite horse, Montoya DSA. Like Cuna, she was also a big red horse with a long, white blaze who took me on an incredible journey. I hope Aimee's sadness passes quickly. Rest in Peace, Cuna; you will be greatly missed.
