“Salty was a retired race horse that had a heart of gold. Salty suffered his first colic and was rushed into emergency surgery and made it. Knowing that Salty would never be able to be ridden again, Nikki loved him unconditionally and stood by his side through his recovery and never gave up on him. They formed a special bond, where they would walk together, she would just sit and watch him graze and took care of him. One year later Salty suffered his 2nd colic and we couldn’t save him this time. My daughter made the hardest decision of her life and put Salty down. She misses him dearly but never forgotten.” -Nikki’s mom
