Today is a sad day at camp. One of the horses that we have had here for many years died of colic today. His name was Dakota. He usually got colic twice a year for whatever reason, once in the spring and once in the fall, and this time they could not save him. This horse was a favorite among a lot of people that have been to camp and will be missed greatly. Chad is going over to the barn now to haul him away and then another horse at camp will be gone. :(

Edit: Dakota did not actually die of colic but because he slipped and fell on a hill and was wedged between two trees, which made it too difficult for him to get up. For this reason and because this all happened during the night no one found him until the next morning and he was already dead.

The Reinhardt's will TRULY miss Dakota! He was our favorite, both of us loved riding him for his spunk, and his size. Sad day:(
