It's been a sad week at Hytyme. We lost one of our original equine residents, the wonderful Coal. In his former life, Coal was a hunter-jumper pony, and he arrived at the rescue dyed black to disguise his grey hairs and obvious age. He also had a heart murmur. He was totally devoted to two horses and a donkey during his tenure at Hytyme: Masquerade (pictured above and below), Old Christy, and Rosa. Coal was probably at least thirty years old, and he'd been doing so well this past year thanks to a personalized feeding system. He was a good friend, and we'll all miss him forever. What a good horse--a true character. Goodbye, Coal.
