The Passing of Embassy

Our 25 year old grey Arabian gelding Embassy was euthanized last night due to a bout of something yet to be determine by a Necropsy. His bouncy character and antics will be sadly missed here at OAS. I'm sure going to miss that goofy little guy.
Update... the Necropsy found him to have many Melanomas. All internal. He was otherwise in exceptional health for his age.We have a mare his age with external Melanomas and she still going strong.She's had them most of her life and is now on Cimetidine to hopefully shrink them some. Both are/were grey Arabians and this is very common.

oh, Em! We will miss you. We will miss you trotting home and wandering into your stall. I will miss spooking you when you realize I'm there to take off your halter. You were an honor to name horse.
