Pet Memorial - Cian

In Memory: October 20, 1980 - October 14, 2011


We were fortunate to care for Cian during the last year of her very long life. We never really knew how old she was but our Vet thought she was probably in her early 30's. Since we didn't know her name, Cian (key-an), meaning 'ancient one' or 'gift from God', seemed appropriate. She had several physical challenges during her last year but she was brave and strong, accepting any intervention needed to provide healing and comfort. She was readily accepted into our existing 'herd' of 3 other horses and quickly became the 'grand dame' of the group. Her special gift to us came in the way of introducing my young grandchildren to her gentle spirit. She was ever mindful and patient of my then toddler granddaughter and readily accepted my young grandson's haphazard brushing. We will always be grateful for the limited time we shared with her and the many lessons she taught us about the true spirit of our wonderful animals.
