R.I.P. Shoni :(

Just got another bad news from one of the girls at the old stables. My beloved Shoni, the first horse that I rode at the stables, has passed away today.
Evidently she hasn't been eating for 2 weeks. They tried soaking her hay and such but she still wouldn't eat. Then after 10 minutes she went down. She tried getting up but couldn't. But she got her head underneath the grain bucket and each time she tried to get up, she'd bang her head.
So the BO called the vet and he/she said to keep her as calm and they'd be right over.
So they put her down, but the BOs husband was yelling and yelling at them saying stuff like "you shouldn't be in the stall with her, it ain't gonna be pretty" and so on and so forth.
So the girls when down to the lower pasture so they weren't there when it all happened....so then the BOs husband tied Shoni's legs up to the tractor bucket so she was hanging upside down from the tractor bucket. She is going to be burried next to Scribbles and another horse that died there :(
All I'm getting is bad news from them. My two favorite horses are dead from the old stables :( I am literally in tears now

Below is a picture of her :(
