White Foot, here's a picture of my boy.

I loved him with all my heart and soul, and the day he died my world came apart. I truly do know how you feel.

The grief will get easier to deal with, but it's going to take time. There's no magic pill or formula to make the time go faster, unfortunately.

Just remember that many of us have gone through what you're enduring now. There's strength in numbers, and grief can be eased when it's shared.

She got to live with you through the end! That is wonderful she was not sold because she got to old or she was out grown etc. What a wonderful and caring horse owner you are. She was blessed to live with you. It sounds like you have learned so much from her and will make the horse world a better place in her honor. I am so sorry for your loss time will heal your pain but as for her she is free and running wild with probably her horse Mom!!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved mare (my equine soulmate) almost 5 years ago. The pain does get easier, but I still have days here and there where I'll see her feed bucket, or find old pictures, that it's still hard.

Speed Racer, he's gorgeous. I'm sorry
Sorry for being so late in the reply, I really am procrastinating about coming here. I went to the barn for the first time yesterday; I couldn't handle it. I've been thinking, I feel bad because while she was home at my barn Gunther was in training so I didn't spend alot of time with her in her last few weeks. :(

Chella, that's a great way to look at it, thanks!

Jordi, :( I can't wait for you to make her bracelet.

Thanks Erin, don't even think about when he dies! Hopefully it won't be for a long long time. Just live everyday you can loving him. If I could take back the days I got frustrated and said "stupid mare" I would in a heartbeat because I love her :(

I have not yet lost a horse, but watching humans die, I do know that everyone grieves completely, in their own time frame and in their own way. One of the best things that has helped me through grief was to allow myself to cry.... even if I had to start it with a sad movie. Just remember, and this is not to hurry you along by any means, but grief is a process, not a place to be stagnant. I am so sorry for your huge loss.
