2013 was a sad year for the BBTRC horses. First we lost our beloved Mustang mare Babe, due to colic in March at the age 28, and in November our little paint mare Cherokee had to be put to rest. Cherokee was recovering from old injury, when she rebroke a bone in her foot, causing her excruciating pain and a very small chance to recovery. Everybody who knew this amazing spirited horse fell in love whith her immediately. Cherokee was born ont the property of BBTRC and lived there all her life. She is greatly missed. She was 19 years old.
