    My friend called me this morning to tell me that she put her mare to sleep yesterday evening.

    Scarlett was a ten-year-old Arab/Mustang cross. She was gorgeous...black as the midnight sky. My friend raised her from a filly. She always had that untameable spirit...that wild restlessness that inhabits so many mustangs...

    Scarlett was running through the pasture, when she crashed into the fence. She broke two legs. The vet was already there, checking on a colt...he put her to sleep in the pasture.

    I believe they're cremating her, and scattering her ashes on the ranch...they're making a memorial stone for her:

    Scarlett
    1996 - 2007
    The urge to run, the restlessness
    The heart of stone I sometimes get
    The things Ive done for foolish pride
    The me thats never satisfied
    The face thats in the mirror when I dont like what I see
    I guess thats just the cowboy in me​

    RIP Scarlett...you were one h*ll of a horse.

    I drove down to be with my friend on Friday...she's dealing with it, as best as can be expected...her boyfriend is coming home early from California to be with her...

    Thanks for all your support...
