A Death in the Family

We are so very, very sad here today.
Do you remember Kean's first horse love, Reba?
 She was the five year old mare he started horse therapy lessons
on about two years ago.
 It took him a little bit of time to warm up to her.
But for Reba-- it was instant.
 She was young, wild and wiggly until Kean got on her back
and then she was as gentle and calm as if she knew she 
was carrying the most precious of loads.
(And she was).
 Kean would pull her hair, poke her nose and give her
big bear hug, head locks.
(Reese was much gentler).
But she'd take it all and not even flinch.
Kean hasn't been riding her lately-- he's been on Romeo
because Reba was pregnant with her first.
She went into labor last week and we hoped she would have
her baby while we were there at lessons on Wednesday.
She looked so good.
We got word today from Candice that neither Reba, nor the baby
survived birth.
How very, very sad.
