Re: [RC] We lost our beautiful horse tonight - FASTGraphic
I am not experienced enough in equine medicine to offer opinions or advice.
I only wanted to extend my deepest condolences. Having had to put the "love
of my life" down last year, I truly feel for all you are going through. Just
wanted to tell you that the pain will pass in time and there IS another horse
out there for you - not to ever replace your loss, but to help you ride
through it. I hope your daughter deals well with her loss, and learns from
it. As I look above my computer monitor, there is a hank of beautiful black
tail on the wall. It is my only memento of my lost mare, Vesper. That, and
the incredible memories of hours and hours on the trail, just she and I.
Cherish your memories and find a new horse as soon as possible! And don't
beat yourself up over your decision to put the horse down. I've been there
and done that. Sounds to me like you did the right and humane thing.
