On Tuesday, my friend, Victoria, had to make the painful decision to let her mare, BB, go. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the "right decision" was not the easy one and only time will ease the burden of that.
BB was bred, raised, and trained by Victoria, though she occasionally tolerated me hopping on to harass her. I can say that I've only ridden a handful of horses that tried as hard to please as she did. Most recently, despite BB's less than ideal dressage conformation, she and Victoria were making great progress in the discipline.
Though BB's time was brief, she has left behind many wonderful memories. It goes without saying that she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.Uploaded by morgane at 03:01 on 19 October 2011
