RIP Mona and foal

1 08 2013

Sunset the night Mona died.

With a heavy heart, I let ya’ll know that Mona died after complications from foaling. Her foal is presumed dead.

God certainly welcomed them to heaven in spectacular fashion.

My heartfelt appreciation goes to Logan Briscoe, BLM law-enforcement officer, and Mike Jensen, former herd manager, for coming first, and continued thanks and whole-hearted appreciation to Logan and to Connie Clementson, Tres Rios Field Office manager, for coming back. Connie responded ASAP when called first thing in the morning to provide relief to an injured mustang so that she wouldn’t suffer needlessly.

Tj, I am so sorry to hear this. What a loss. I went back through your blog looking for a pix of Mona, but wasn’t successful. Could you run one for those of us so far removed from your lovely area? Many thanks. Also, whose band was she with?

My heart is heavy with you. R.I.P. beautiful lady.

Yes, I will. I got in late last night, and it’s been a long week already. She was with Hollywood’s band.
