The night before he left for retirement I spent five hours non-stop sculpting him. It was a heart wrentching yet beautiful moment of our lives I will never forget.
I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend those last few hours with him and capture him in a comfortable and happy state of mind. He is truly a very special horse who has changed my life significantly.
I retired Relámpago early at 15 years old. I chose to do this because I believed he deserved the security of a healthy and happy forever home back at the ranch where he came from. Today he is the family's trail horse and continues to enjoy life while serving those who value and love him as much as I do. It isn't everyday we can secure such a future for our beloved horses.
