It’s all About Ace

I got the call today. Ace is permanently retired.

Who is Ace? Ace is my girlfriend’s old Arabian horse. She’s been allowing me to drive him for the past 20 months, following the passing of my own Arabian horse. Ace is a spry 29 year-old, that you wouldn’t guess to be a day over 20. Lots of spring in his trot, and a twinkle in his eye. I’ve had some very enjoyable times with Ace and he has certainly helped me deal with the loss of my own horse.

Last week we had awful weather here in Texas. Temps in the 100s, high humidity; and then a slight cool down with some pretty powerful thunderstorms. With the weather, also came colic. Ace was rushed off to the vet, treated, spent a night or two and came home. He’s not out of the woods yet. My girlfriend believes it best to let him just live out however many days he has left as a pasture ornament. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to enjoy some time with Ace. He’s a good pony.
