I'm on the verge of tears. "Never Say Never " by The Fray is playing on my iPhone.:'(

I am so sorry for you loss, I hope in time your wounds will heal..horses fill gaps in our heart. They are what we don't have in ourselves, or what we wish to see in ourselves. When they leave, it's like half of us just died along with them. I'm not saying that wound will never be completely healed, but that it might be well patched and able to let another horse into your heart. It's been over 4 (Now i feel like crap..can't remember when he passed) years since my gelding Mango passed away, and I still think of him on a daily basis, give me enough time alone and I will still cry my eyes out. But, I know God took him from me to end his pain, and that he is making somebody very happy in heaven. And I am sure it's the same with Relan.

So sorry for your loss-I just hate that colic-I lost a beloved mare to it-so horrible. Glad you have some other horses to ride & work with. Keep your heart open-there are so many horses in need right now.

Thanks guys.. I broke into tears again today going out to the herd, and him not being there. Victress and Relana are being amazing though. Relana is being my cuddle bug,nthat I really need in a time like this, and Victress is behaving thank goodness. Anytime I see a pictures of him I start crying but I can't stop looking at them. I miss seeing his adorable face everyday. I'm sure things will get better with time.

I'm so sorry to hear about Relan... He was stunning, and you made a beautiful life for him.

Now the healing process can begin, and true medicine is found inside the wound. Keep your heart open and I'm sure another special horse will find his way in.

Aww that's sweet! Hopefully they are helping you with your loss. I had a dog that laid his head in my lap when I lost one of my other dogs. Animals know when their humans are in pain or sad and are a great help in dealing with losses over a loved one. Continued (((((Hugs))))) to you from me.

They knew you needed some love horses are so much smarter then people give them credit for and I swear they have magic powers to fix almost anything

He helped me through so much in my life with my parents splitting and everything, he was always there. He was my best friend, and my everything. I feel like I just lost everything that holds me together. He was so talented and so close to me I have no idea how I can even imagine not seeing his gorgeous face everyday. Something I can hold,cuddle, talk to and not have any judgment. He had to be put down, due to a serve case of colic. Vet said there was nothing we could do, I had been walking him for hours in the morning, he seemed to get better, by the time I went back out he was trying to roll and everything. My heart is breaking everytime I think of this horse not being there for me. I will have pictures coming soon just can't look at them right now. He touched so many lives and was the sweetest creature you would ever meet. Nobody can really believe this is happening... My friend is going to paint him for me so hopefully having that will help too. It's going to be hard not seeing him everyday come running to me in the pasture even when I'm not there to get him. He loved being cuddled and everything. I am happy because I was there the entire day with him, making him comfortable trying to work through it. According to the vet this has been happening a lot and they are not sure why. Sorry if this is a bit scrambled I just can't seem to get my mind together. Thanks for reading.. RIP Lanee boo... You aren't here but will never be forgotten. </3
hiya i share your greif, and you will never for get all thoes lovley times you shared togeather i rember you wrighting about lanee and i was hopeing he would pull through for you and looking at your special pictures it brings tears to your eyes please take my deepest condolances for your beautiful horse our thoughts are with you michael and tricky.
