I am so sorry for your loss. Did it have anything to do with his injury?

Thanks for your thoughts. I've lost horses before, but this has ripped my heart out. He was my everything.

He tried to rush through the gate of his yard when I was bringing him in for dinner. He caught his back legs in the gateway and panicked. His bodyweight snapped the gate post and he fell. The gate landed on his back leg and him on top of it. I can't get that image out of my mind.

So sorry to hear this. All that.. and then a broken leg takes him.

My condolences and sympathy go out to you.

Oh no, I'm so very sorry. You did your very best for him though and he was obviously loved. My condolences to you and know that he is now galloping in heaven, pain free and no more artheritis, right with my big guy who was also a TB. They sure do know how to make a big exit...
