Our dear sweet Rocky passed away on April 6, 2019 at the age of 20 due to complications with some injuries in his legs. Rocky brought so many people great joy with his gentle and patient heart. We had spent many months treating him for various ailments and made slow progress and had moments of hope along the way. However, his final hurdle was a diagnosis of laminitis. Given his condition we had to make the very heart wrenching decision to relieve him of his pain and set him free. He was loved by all—our volunteers worked very hard tending to his needs and loving him every day. We are very grateful to each and every one of them. Rocky was stoic to the end; such a gentle soul. We know he is now romping and galloping with friends in lush fields of green somewhere. Just as he should be. Rest in peace, sweet boy. We will miss you.
