We are so sad to say that our sweet Cricket passed away in January of 2015.  She was our oldest horse at 40 years old and she has been at Villa for about 5 years. She had her ups and downs, but was in overall pretty good health.  She started going blind about 6 months ago, but is doing well in her stall.  We give her extra blankets in the winter and wrap her legs when it is cold, like in this photo.  She passed away just a month or so after Gus, her next door neighbor of over 2 years.  We like to think they went together...RIP our little Cricket.
