So sorry to read of your loss, things do get a little easier with time, but a little bit of your heart will have gone with her.

Oh my goodness I'm so sorry. Such a terrible thing to go through. RIP Indie.

Thank you.

She really did take a huge piece of my heart with her. There wasn't a thing she could do that would make me mad... she was just one of those horses who acted so innocent and you never had to correct them. After the first couple days, we got along marvelously for the remainder of our time together. I still just can't believe it.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

Oh Jore, what heartbreak. She was loved so much in the short time you two shared together. It's been clear from all your posts how much you adored her. Sending good thoughts to you.

Thank you, I'm glad that my posts mirrored how I felt about her. I only had her for such a short time, but it feels like I've known her forever. I think she was that once-in-a-lifetime horse, and I'll be blessed if I ever own another horse like her. For now, I miss her more than I ever could imagine, even though I'm still in a state of denial.

I have math to study later and my mom said we could pick up nicer water colours at Walmart later so I can paint Indie's ideal rainbow bridge.. full of objects to crib on, lots of apples/carrots, lots of hay, horses who will love her like I do... just her version of heaven.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

I'm so sorry, Jore. Give yourself time to get over her death. It's an incredibly hard thing to do. You gave her a fantastic life for a short while, and she died loved. R.I.P Indie.

Thank you, equiniphile.

I've already decided that whenever I decide it's time for another horse, it's going to be another OTTB. I also want to get a small infinity symbol tattoo somewhere when I'm eighteen.. but I want it to have little dreamcatcher beads and feathers, since Indie's stall sign had a dream catcher on it. (since she was my dream come true)

I'm so sorry, Jore. This is such an unexpected loss. At least you were able to have the little bit of time with her that you did.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Very sorry for your loss. Gutteral Pouch Mycosis comes to mind. I had a mare who had it and did survive the surgery. I am very sorry.....

Thank you both.

Even if we had known she'd had it, she wouldn't have likely made it to Dr. Murch's for the surgery. Plus her nose was too full of blood for a scope to confirm it.

I can only pray I gave her some sort of comfort. I remember telling her I'd be mad if she left me, but then I apologized because I realized how hard she was fighting to stay alive for me.
