Last week was a rough week here at Avalon Equine. We had to say goodbye to our longtime companion, buddy, friend…confidant, Tonka. He had been with us for almost 16 years and when we traveled giving our equine reproduction short courses, he was a constant in our lives that many of you had met along the way. A funny, cantankerous, grouchy guy, he was one of the richly colored threads that make up the fabric of our lives. We kept hoping he would make the hard decision for us and just - wake up dead - but sticking to his life’s dictum, he didn’t make even that choice, easy for us. It was time.
Godspeed Tonka...until we meet again.
