Yesterday evening, as some of you already know, my beautiful boy Rex had an accident while I was bringing him in for his dinner. He tried to rush through the gate before it was open properly and got his hind end caught. He panicked and snapped the gate post which made him fall. He landed with the gate on his leg and the rest of him on top. He broke his leg. He was put to sleep shortly after.
I have lost horses before, but this is indescribable. He was my heart horse, my everything. Losing him, seeing him so helpless...there are no words. Its like having my heart ripped out.
Oh dear god, I didn't realize you saw it happen. I am so sorry sweetie, I can't begin to understand your pain, but I'm sending all the "ease pain" vibes I can. Try to rest easy knowing he's got buddies to romp with, and that you did everything and more for each and every one of them. You are a prime example of an excellent horse owner, if every owner worked half as hard as you, we'd have much better off horses. So many hugs, darling. Posted via Mobile Device
