You have made a very brave decision, it is really hard especially when it's your first horse. Probably the most courageous think I have ever seen was a 11yr old girl get her very sick horse up ( Sparkle had a brain tumor ) and lead her away from the stables to be put down, Helen was in floods of tears but didn't want anybody else to do it and Sparkle would't get up for anyone else.
I had to make the same decision after I had had my first mare for 19 years, it is one of the hardest things to do, but to persevere and keep you horse suffering would only make matters worse.
Just remember the good times you had together and remind yourself that you gave Labre a good home while she was with you, and that at the end you made the right choice.
