    I am sorry for the loss of your friend.

    I've been around horses who were put down for less reason than Vaughn's injury as well as horses who were kept alive too long. (None were mine. I've worked at barns before and sometimes that's just how it is.) It's never easy. Please keep some tail or mane hair for yourself if you can.

    It is very hard to go through. I havent went through it, but I am watching my friend go through it. Her horse had a serious injury (shot! Torn through his colon and intestines), and wasnt supposed to make it. She cleared out her bank account bc she believed he could make it. He had a 5% chance of living, and believe it or not, he made it! And continued on to become a champion barrel racer! And then the years passed and he could no longer stand. She tried building a hoist to keep him off the ground. But he was ready. And he was put down. That was three years ago. And I tell you, I often show up to her house and find her crying in her barn. It's a deep hurt. But I do like the thought that greentree had. Maybe a angel child needs him. Maybe they just left their horse here on earth and is broken hearted, and will be meeting Vaughn at the gate! Maybe God wants to see him running in the meadows in full health again. I don't know what to say. I just try to hold my friends hand and hug her. You just try ot keep those horse people around you that understand the connection you can have with a horse. And keep strong! Hugs and prayers to you and Vaughn!

    About two years ago I witnessed a yearling filly put to sleep due to slipping on ice and breaking her leg and rupturing some stuff inside her. She fought until the last breath. It's so hard to see. I'm sorry for your loss.

    Piper - presumably your companion horse has now gone on his way. Meanwhile you are left with the memories he gave you and they make you cry.

    I wish you my sympathy - the loss of a horse can be a hard burden to bear.

    But that is what owning horses is all about. The deeper the relationship between you and the animal, then the more painful is the grief at their passing on to another world.

    However you are lucky to have experienced a close bond between you and a horse. The relationship you enjoyed with this poor horse will help you with the next horse. You'll be that little more understanding with an animal of a different species. You'll be more gentle. You'll become a better rider because you'll realize that the horse which you shelter, you ride and you teach, is in your care. Its well being rests with you.

    Sorry, but you will never forget this animal. The pain of his passing will fade with time but one day a memory of him will cause you to smile.

    As my Father once said to me: "if I had not known the joy of his presence, then I would not have felt the deep pain of his passing".

    Go find another fine horse with which to play. There's more than one out there waiting for you.
