    Wow.....

    Beautiful.....

    How much we all come to love our horses....I only hope I'm loved as much as I love my horses.

    I've read through, and maybe I missed it.

    If you'll forgive my forwardness, please, how did Comet pass?

    As I post, I'm looking at a picture of my Comet which was with me some 20+ years ago.

    I know it's not easy learning to live without him after such a loss, but I'd guess there's another horse just waiting to steal your heart again......

    Hang in there young lady......

    I love your tribute to your much loved horse-it has moved me to tears-I'm just a little more emotional than usual as I had to put down our old Lab yesterday,it's so hard outliving our four-footed friends. I'm glad though that this year was positive in so many ways for both of you. You gave him a wonderful life.

    so sorry to hear :(
    I almost lost my dog two weeks ago
    He got hit by a car
    He pulled through though but I was a wreck waiting for the verdict because they thought he had blood in his lungs
    Its just been a bad month for me

    thank you so much
    And its ok its easier for me to talk about it now
    He got colic for the first time in all 10 years i've had him
    It just went from good to worse so fast
    I was there all day sunday trying to save him
    We have him a shot and tried to call a vet immediately when we noticed he was acting strange at 7 am but had trouble reaching one because apparently a lot of horses were sick that day
    So the vet didn't show up until noon
    He wasn't responding to bedamine (sp?) which the vet instructed every 5 to 6 hours
    I also took him on a trailer ride which was also suggested
    I walked him so much and tried to keep him up but as time went on he couldn't get up and I had to sit up him to keep him from thrashing until the vet came
    She tried everything she could but it wasn't enough
    She said he was twisted and surgery was just too expensive
    It was so hard to make the decision and say goodbye

    I'm so sorry to hear that-yes, colic can come out of the blue-I lost a beloved mare to that & she had a 3 month old foal! I had an autoposy done because I couldn't believe she was gone so quick, but she had a lot of worm damage that was probably going back to her first years even before I got her. The vet said I made the right decision, but I still wish I had her-she was my heart horse. I truly send you healing vibes & hope you mind will become easier & the good memories will overshadow all this.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Take some time to cry it out...That's the best therapy for all of this. Don't bottle up the emotions, because no good comes from that.

    He was a beautiful boy.

    I'm sorry :( the loss of a horse is like a loss of our own children.
