The Grasshopper

ImageThe autopsy for The Grasshopper has been completed. One month ago, Hopper was galloping at Pine Top Horse Trials where he passed away suddenly, in mid gallop with his ears pricked, when his heart simply quit beating due to acute heart failure. The show vet actually saw it happen and was at his side within seconds but he was already gone. Our brave boy passed away doing what he loved, through no fault of his own or Pine Top and not due to an effort at a jump. Thank all of you for your support and well wishes through this incredibly difficult time. He was one in a million and we loved him more than words can say.
