urbancowgirl - don't let my feelings deter you. In reality im probably going over the top with how I feel and 99.9% of the time sending your horse to a trainer ends well. I just had a bad experience so for me that's how I feel. Just do your research on where your horse is going. That's probably a better way to look at it
Allie - yup! She's cantering around having the time of her life while im mourning her loss...and paying her vet bill lol but seriously, thanks for your words ((((((hugs))))))
Northermama - yes the freak ones are much harder to deal with. If she got sick and I was expecting it there would have been some sort of solace to it. But the sudden way with which it all happened hit me like a tonne of bricks. To continue to analogy, im still trying to get out from underneath that tonne of bricks. Im really struggling to deal with her death. In the last 2 years I've lost both my real dad and my step dad, my closest aunty and uncle and have seen my mum go through treatment for bowel cancer. And now I lose my mare right after finding out that my mare on lease has to go back to her owner soon. Its very hard to deal with :(
