Altho I'd bo't a replacement horse before putting the old boy down, there was no connection for about a year. I realized I wasn't being fair to him and should either get with it or sell him. I got with it and he found a way to sneak into my heart when I thought there was no room for another.

It does get easier with time, but it's a gradual process. It's not like you're going to reach 12 months out and suddenly be fine. That's not how grief works, whether for the loss of a significant human or a beloved animal companion.

It took me 3 years before I could even say my horse's name without tearing up. I won't tell you it'll ever be the same as it was before they died, because it won't. But life goes on, and time makes the burden easier to bear.

Get up, get out, do the things you love. Constant, unrelenting mourning does nothing but make you feel worse. You have to go on, simply because there isn't any other acceptable alternative.

You never know when a memory will occur. Sounds, smells, a song or the slant of light on the grass. Some will make you sad and some will make you smile. It's what we open ourselves up to when we choose to love.

Thank you everyone your comments are all very supportive and lovely to hear, it will never be the same without Sonny here, and I miss him everyday, what made the loss of Sonny worse was that I lost my hamster January 2012 and Sonny was helping me get through the loss of Marshi (my hamster) but then may 2012 when Sonny was still helping me through with the loss of Marshi he had to be put to sleep and then I had lost them both and felt like I had lost every thing I lived for:( I am now learning to live with the loss of them both, it will take time and there are hard days where I feel I need to give up but then I think of them and they help me through
Love you Marshi and Sonny!:)
R.I.P Sonny and Marshi!:)<3
Always in my heart<3

I lost a horse 20 months ago and only removed his picture from my profile in Facebook a week ago and finally replaced it with the horse I brought home two months later. Almost wish I hadn't as it feels like bad karma that I put up the horse's pic and then lost him two days ago. We feel the pain of the loss and we all grieve in different ways. When I lost a mare better than 10 years ago now, I came very close to giving up riding and I mean to the point I sold, donated or threw out everything. I managed two years and then had to get back; I missed horses too much. I once told a friend of mine that getting bitten by the horse bug (as in unable to be without them) is a terminal disease. They are never out of our hearts.
