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!
