    RIP gypsy...my baby girl

    I don't even know where to start.

    Gypsy was spending time with some trainers trying to sort through her problems. Tonight they took her out to lunge her and out of the blue she reared straight up and flipped over smashing her head on the ground when she hit the ground.

    They rang me straight away and I told them to get a vet out and I would also head out but I was an hour away. This was at 7.30pm. She still hadnt got up when the vet arrived 40 minutes later. When I got there she was still on the ground and the vet explained what was happening. Basically she couldnt move the right side of her body and her right pupil was unresponsive to light indicating massive brain damage or a broken neck but she thought it more likely that it was brain damage. She said, and it was evident, that she couldnt come back from that. She also said she was in a lot of pain.

    I decided it was best for her to be put down even though I didnt want that. I knew it was best for her though.

    So at 9.15pm she went to sleep very quietly. It was almost surreal how gentle it was. I've never had a horse die before and I have to say its left a huge hole in my heart. Im absolutely devastated

    RIP gypsy

    Thanks for your kind words everyone. I don't think I've stopped crying since it happened.

    I just spoke to the people where she was and they are burying her under a big tree in the paddock she was living in while she was there. She said that's where her mare is going to be when she has her foal so then gypsy can always look over them and protect them. They are going to bury her with sugar cubes and licorice cause they were her favourite treats.

    Im so glad they are burying her for me because from experience at people funerals the hardest part is when they go into the ground :(

    I miss her so much :(

    My angel girl

    Oh my God...jazzy I just saw this thread. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss, my heart is aching for you. I'm glad that you got to spend the time with Gypsy that you did, but I know no other horse can ever replace her in your heart.

    Jazzy I've only just seen this thread also. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, and it was so kind of the people who were training on her to bury her where she could protect the newborn foal when the time comes.
    May she rest in peace.
