    Im very sorry. But trust me. You don't want him to suffer. And beilive me I know how much you must love your horse. But its meant to be he's has a good long life and he needs to be in a better place( not that it could be much better)

    My heart goes out to you and your family. Three weeks is a long time when in pain. As hard as it is to go through for all involved, sometimes the anticipation makes it worse. It would also be a long three weeks for you. He is a lucky horse to be so loved and have had a good life. Follow your heart.

    I have a couple coming up on the end too. My first horse, and an old dame we took in and retired because she was so good to my father many years ago.

    As my mother keeps telling me "You cannot cure old age."

    I talked to family about this, and they agreed with me (and you guys too) that he should be put down so he won't be in pain any longer. The vet is coming out tomorrow morning and performing the task...

    Until then, I'm going to go out and spend some time with him. Thank you again, so very much for all your thoughts and good wishes. I'm very grateful!

    Thinking of you tonight and tomorrow. You are doing whats right, just give him a kiss and know you will see him again one day, in the greenest pastures you can imagine, next to the rainbow bridge. :) It will be ok.

    GG -- So sorry to hear this sad news, but he has indeed lived a long life and with the care that your family obviously has for him, he is expecting that love and care to continue to the conclusion. He is trusting you and you are doing right by him in not letting him suffer. {{hugs}} for you.

    Thinking of you in this time of need - we are all here to offer our support. We have all lost one we love at some point.

    You have done the best you can for him, and he will always thank you. With each horse you ride throughout your life, you'll think of him, and it will bring a smile to your face. Thank him for what he as taught you, and he will thank you for bringing him through 28 wonderful years, and ending his pain when he had given all he had to give.

    Be strong. We are all here.

    I know that horrible feeling-- I watched my horse pass away unfortunately he wasn't as lucky as your horse and only lived to 6 years of age- far to young to leave... it was the most devasting thing I have ever seen but I find even though its hard you owe ur horse that much to stay there with him until its over.. give him that last hug i'll be thinking of you and him xx

    Jerry was put down at 9:08 AM this morning. He was in so much pain, it really did seem kinder to let him go. The expression on his face as his breathing slowed was so serene it made me feel so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful horse for so many years. He will be buried on our property later today. :(
