A sad notice to our supporters: Our dear Shadox galloped over the rainbow bridge on Wednesday evening after a valiant 12 hour attempt to survive a very serious bout of colic. After a wonderful career as a show pony, Shadox helped countless riders at TROtt in his 7 years as a therapy horse. We will miss him more than can be imagined.

Rest in peace, Shadox
