Chastain 1997 - 2015

It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that I went outside to feed this morning and was shocked to find Chastain had passed on. He was only 18 years old, but had several medical issues throughout his life. He was my very first sidesaddle horse and although I never took him into the show ring, he helped me to learn the basics. (Notice the ill fitting saddle!!)  Rest in peace sweet boy.

I'm so sorry. It's always hard to lose a good horse, especially those who have been teachers.
