It is always hard to lose a friend...I would know because last year on November 19th a friend of mine died. He wasn't an animal but I feel as if it still connects. You did what was right. It was his time to leave this world and gallop into the open meadows of heaven. Don't cry because your time will come too and when it comes your horse will be waiting for you to ride him again.

He’ll always be in your heart

What is Out of Africa? I’m guessing that they took care of the humane euthanasia of your friend. Was your horse Gus old? How many years did you share your life with him? It sounds like he lived a really long life with and owner that loved him tremendously. I wish that all horses could have the chance to be old and to be loved by a kind owner like you. Don’t cry because you did what you had to do, cry because you miss him.

Now an angel

You know, I was thinking about your title “Once a friend, now an angel” and I realized that Gus was probably always an angel.

Gus, you did the right thing. I think it's very brave of you to donate him for his body to continue to serve in the circle of life. I have a 31 year old whose time will come, too, sooner than later, and was thinking about what we will do with his remains. I believe that God has made a special place for each of us in heaven, and if we need our horses to be in heaven so that we can be perfectly happy there, then I'm sure that's where they'll be!
