^^ Thank you for your concern. I am actually doing okay. It hurts, yeah, but I knew it was coming eventually and had prepared myself for it pretty well.

Like my Dad says, it happens to us all sometime. It just stings when it is a horse that has been a member of your family for 20 years. :/

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Awe I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how hard it must have been. I'm balling...like really. Not just one tear, but a whole bunch.


RIP Sis!

Hugs to you smrobs.

You don't need more photos (except to show us of course), all the pictures you need are in your head.

She was a lucky horse to have a loving long term home. RIP Sis

*Big huge hug!*
I am SO sorry for your loss. :'(
My favorite horse in the entire world, who was literally my motivation to ride when I was younger (she was extremely feisty and I was CONSTANTLY asking, "Am I ready to ride her yet?" and when I got a no I would be like, "Okay, well then, I guess I'll ride more often until I get good enough!" or "Okay, well then sure, I'll ride *insert butt-face horse's name here* next week! If it helps me get good enough to ride Phoebe!") died two years ago this September. Sis was with you a lot longer, but I can understand what you're going through a little.
