One of the Greats is Gone - Goodbye, Tommy
Tommy, our gorgeous big lug of a QH, 24 years old with Wobbles, loyal and kind, founder of the Bug Club, teacher of many a "bug" - a small child on his big, 16.2 hand back, dorky wobbly boy with quirks, originator of the "naughty name" and "Tommy Temper Tantrums" ... and all around wonderful boy who has graced our lives for the past twelve years, passed away in the blink of an eye this afternoon in pasture. One minute he was fine, the next he was gone. He didn't suffer; he left that for us.
