RIP MR KID CZECH 4-18-1981/7-4-2010
My 4th of July celebration came to a halt. I left work on Saturday night and rode to Iowa City, IA to knock off a few miles on my way to Minneapolis. My horse Kid has been battling a heart murmor for the past month. I had been working with my vet trying some different medications to keep him stablized, every morning before I left for work I would go up and give him his medication and repeat it when I got home at night. The past few days he seemed as though he was coming around, he lost quite a bit of weight since his heart wasn't pumping normally. I left town thinking he was stable because he was eating well and getting his spunk back. I left instructions with my husband as what to give him. I got up early and was just getting ready to pack my bike up on July 4th, I was in Iowa and my husband called me at 7:00am to tell me that Kid had passed away. He was there with him, so he wasn't alone. I would have never left town if I thought for one minute that he would die the minute I left town, I should have been there with him. I cancelled my trip to MN and headed back home yesterday. Trying to find a excavator on a Sunday and a holiday at that is no easy task. We called everyone in the book around our area. We finally got someone out here this morning and we laid Kid to rest. I will miss you my friend, you lived a long 29 years and I'm so happy to have had you as my friend and companion all those miles we hauled together. You were one of the greats, fourth generation out of MANOWAR, great grandson of WAR ADMIRAL and Grandson of MR KID CHARGE, all legends. RIP KID, LOVE YOU FOREVER!
