Miss Jack's Baby

My favorite horse died this past summer - had to be "put down" as a matter of fact. I didn't own her anymore - I gave her away last year to a friend of mine who raises quality Quarter horses. My old mare had been having seizures and my on-line studying suggested that they were related to her estrous cycles, so I was hoping that breeding her would interrupt the seizures. Since she was 21 years old at the time, getting her bred was questionable, but I gave her to Bernie and Jenny anyway. They were delighted with her pedigree, her manners and her intelligence. And they had the safe facilities to care for her - which I do not. To make a long storey short, this past April, she had a filly foal and 3 months later had to be put down. This long legged beauty was the result of Bernie and Jenny's deligent care for one year. They are very happy. And one day I will see my beautiful "Miss Jack" again, because heaven wouldn't be heaven with out horses....
