I am so, so sorry for your loss. Reading it brought tears to my eyes, and I have a feeling they will only keep flowing as I type the following out.
I can remember hearing all about Chinga in threads, and I remember hearing of all you went through trying to get him better.
Just remember that he knew how much you loved him and he loved you back just as much, if not more. Although Indie's death doesn't sound nearly as horrific, losing a horse in such an unexpected, tragic way is never easy to deal with and even now, I'm still struggling with Indie's loss. I can only wish you strength as you try to remember only the good memories, and remember how blessed Chinga was to have you, and how lucky you were to have him.
The next few months are, without a doubt, going to be painstaking and difficult... but I hope that one day, you can give another horse the love and care you gave Chinga. When Indie died, my instructor told me that every horse deserves their own person to love them and told me that one day, she'll lead me to another horse needing my love, which I'm sure Chinga will do for you.
Words are likely of little consolation, but know that everyone here has you in their thoughts, and Indie is probably giving Chinga a grand tour.
Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.
