Remembering Sweet Danny Boy

Sadly, we lost Danny Boy earlier this summer. Danny came to us 4 years ago. He gained over 100 pounds and was a happy soul. He loved attention and thrived on interaction with the other horses. He was especially fond of Tommy, they used to gallop up and down the fence line playing.

We learned Danny had cancer several months after he arrived. We had been able to manage his genital cancer with regular vet cleanings. Danny had always been an easy keeper but we knew the cancer had metastasized when he started losing weight. The cancer became more aggressive and we had no choice but to humanely euthanize this wonderful old gelding. Danny was 34 when he left us, and was dearly loved by many. We miss his cute face, covered in mash, when he’d pop his head over the stall door.
