My heart aches for you Chinga. You had a beautiful horse and you gave him a wonderful six years of companionship, and I know that in the end, he was grateful to you for knowing that it was time to say goodbye rather than try to force him to survive. Sometimes the bravest, strongest form of love is the one that lets go when it has to, and you definitely have that love.

May Chinga run forever in the grassy pastures past the rainbow bridge, along with the rest of our dearly loved and cherished life companions.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I am so sorry, I know how it feels to loose a friend, we lost Comanche 2-26-10 and I still miss him


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Oh my god Maddie I am so sorry...I'm in tears too, Chinga was one of the first forum horses I knew, and I loved watching you two grow closer and be successful with each other. I know how much you loved him, and how much he loved you.

I stared at this thread in complete shock and didn't even realize I was crying until I went to reply.

I offer all my thoughts and condolences, as this was not anyone's fault and there was nothing you could have done. I am glad he is pain free now, and hopefully will tell all other horses you own in the future not to be so accident prone...Silly boy...

I am so, so, so sorry to hear this. :(

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I am so sorry this happened. He was one of my favorite forum horses, and you two were truly a perfect match.

So very sorry to hear about your loss! Reading the story brought tears to my eyes. Dont ever feel like it was your fault! I believe you did what was right for him, he didnt have to suffer very long from his injuries.

So sorry for your loss. I'll keep you in my prayers.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

You shared an absolutely amazing bond with Chinga and it was always a pleasure to read your updates and see the photos of you both.

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.
