Splash came into Erin Rogers' life in 1995 as her diabetes was getting worse and she feared she was dying. The young gelding gave purpose to her life.
"I saw him and I just fell in love with him," she told CTV News.
But her disease became so severe that she required a double organ transplant, and she didn't feel she could give Splash the care he deserved.
She sold him to someone she trusted, but he was never far from her mind. Several years ago, with her health improving, Rogers began searching for Splash.
