Unhappy I miss her more then words can describe!!

Kay was put to sleep in May 2010. She was diagnosed with severe calcification on her left front knee due to a fracture she had sustained that went untreated at a previous owner (the man she was rescued from) Due to her transfering weight, her right knee had also began to cause her problems. So she was transfering weight to her hind legs and spraining her hocks. Bute was not effective for her for very long and I could tell she was in alot of pain. I miss her more then words could ever possibly describe, but I know that I did the right thing for her to end her suffering.

It's never easy to put a horse to sleep, but you did the right thing. You gave her the love, care and attention that she didn't get before, making her time with you the best she'd ever had. Now, she galloping pain free through fields of clover, waiting for you across the Rainbow Bridge...

I'm sorry for your lost

A horse can teach a girl courage, if she chooses to grab mane and hang on for dear life.

I'm sorry that you had to go through this. I lost my gelding suddenly in August of this year and it still hurts.

I am very sorry for your loss to this magnificant creature. I am sure Kay apreciates your decision though. She can't wait to see you again!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.
