2020 hasn't quite got off to the start anyone would want.

All Christmas I have been battling a really bad case of Uveitis with Beanie and unfortunately he never recovered.

His condition left too much irreversible damage to ever be ridden again, but then I noticed a huge change in his personality.

He was dropping weight very quickly, he started to stumble regularly, and would tentatively walk everywhere.

He wouldn't run or play with the others, he had completely lost his spark, his ears were always back, and he no longer wanted fuss or attention.

I knew in my heart what decision needed to be made, and I was reassured by my vets that I was absolutely making the right decision. 

He has been a huge loss to the family, and summed up perfectly by my trainer "He has the heart of a lion".
