I'm sending prayers your way. I know its hard to lose a horse you love so much but you did the right thing. He is with his friend now, i'm sure they are galloping around having fun.

That memory will fade into the background eventually, I promise. You'll never not forget it, but you also won't continue to dwell on it.

His death is still fresh and raw. You'll be able to move past this memory in time, and remember all the good things.

My deepest condolences, and prayers for peace to you and yours.

Very sorry for your loss! * Hugs! *

I am sorry for you loss. You stayed with Gibson til the end. That was better than any pain killer would have been.

A friend sent me this when I had to put Pete down this past April. It some how comforted me.

^ that made me tear up. beautiful and touching.

Today has been rough. I had to work, and had a long and hard day at work. Still thinking of Gibson's pain and suffering, I can't help it. I hope to go have a chat with my one alive horse tomorrow. He is very sensitive and will give me soft gentle hugs. Trying to stay positive here, I really appreciate all the support. Everyone's kind words have really helped me stay sane during this time.
