Sorry for your loss :( Bubbles was an incredible mare and she was lucky to have you as you were lucky to have her.
What you wrote made me cry, at least you were with her in the end :)

We've just buried her tonight, beside Laasanna who we lost on april 28th 2010. So atleast they'll be together again.

Tinyliny - that's exactly it, I know she lived a happy life here and she didn't suffer long, her final ride was a good one, her final show was a good send off in february, she was pretty much retired to live a happy end as a paddock ornament.

She fought her hardest but in the end age got the better of her, and to be honest i'm glad it was age that got the better of her and not sickness or injury

Thanks for a beautiful account of Bubbles' life & what she taught you!

Yes, I agree with mum that she went to the front paddock for you. How wonderful that she died while in your embrace!

Lovely, also, that she was never abused nor overworked!

I am sorry for your loss of your friend. She had a long life and a well spent one with people that cared about her. She taught you the love of horses.

Aww I'm so sorry! But she died knowing she was loved and cared for. That's all she could want and more to be taken care of so well by someone who loved her so much, even in her time of death. I'll be sending my thoughts and prayers your way. Rest in Peace Bubbles <3

I know it's happeed and I've got no choice but to believe it did seeing as it happened in my arms, but I nearly went out 5 minutes ago to make her feed :\ I keep forgetting she's not out there waiting for her feed.

And I also had to tell the farrier today why he had only 1 horse and a miniature to trim rather than the 2 horses and a miniature that we had planned a week ago.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my old man as well. It is the little things that make it so hard in the beginning, like you said about forgetting, and going to make her feed. I would be cleaning stalls, and get to his, go in with the pitchfork, and then remember it didn't need to be cleaned anymore and break down.

Big hugs to you, and take comfort in the fact that she went peacefully, knowing you were there with her.
