HeartBeat was a gorgeous TB at 19 years old. She came to Ruby Ranch as a healthy horse because her owner was no longer riding her and felt she needed someone younger to give her the attention she deserved. An unfortunate slip and fall after a rain storm shattered her elbow right through the joint and there is no repair available that would get her out of pain much less keep her sound.
She was laid to rest on September 19th, 2012. Our board member and Heartbeat’s trainer, Lori Torrini, and her husband Jim Barrentine were present to give HeartBeat all the love, pets and treats that such a friendly, gentle and kind mare deserves. We are heart-broken.
