I was hoping to put out a newsletter saying how things have finally turned around here at the ranch. We finally got the clutch back for the tractor and things were getting ready to move forward. However, early this afternoon my son passed away. We usually have coffee in the mornings together but this morning he had been up & had gone back to bed so I went on with my daily routine. When his curtains weren’t open by early afternoon I went and checked on him. I found him dead in our 5th wheel.
Needless to say, our lives are tremendously devastated right now. It’s all I can do to function but I do need to send out a plea. I can no longer live on this property. All of his belongings are here and it’s going to be hard enough for me to have to pack up my baby’s life, but to have the constant reminder is more than I can deal with. I really need some homes for the mustangs, and others if possible. I’m not sure how I’m even going to cover the expenses for the funeral since we just spent what we had on hay & the clutch.
So, I’m begging you, this is beyond our control and I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through this without breaking completely down. It’s still such a nightmare. But, I know first & foremost I have got to get some of these horses out of here because Tom & I aren’t going to be able to function for a while. We are going to try to move as soon as we can. We still have so much remodeling that is in progress and must be finished so we can get the house on the market, even more so now than ever.
Please, if anyone can help us by taking a few horses.
