    Thanks guys. Hard to believe it has been 2 months, still hurts bad. It's tough walking out to the barn and not having my old man there to greet me. I've found myself much less motivated to be in the barn doing what I need to be doing but am pushing on. I can't help it and know it isn't right but every horse I touch now in some way has big shoes and expectations to fill because Hondo spoiled me. He was an amazing horse, a true gentleman of a stallion and a top notch riding & show partner.

    Casey, I need to get on the pic thing, just haven't been able to bring myself to do it. I need to find a day when DD can go hang with a friend for the day so I can go through them, it's daunting to think about let alone do. :(

    It will be hard! But you will see all the great memories you had with him and ones that you may even forgot about.

    Ah geez gal! I just seen this!

    Sounds like one helluva horse! :)
    Very sorry for the loss, a big huge hug from me and a wet slobbery kiss from Stilts to you.

    Thanks CC and thanks Stilts lol. He was definitely one helluva horse. The old boy did it all, he had superiors in 2 events and points in 5 others. He was the true definition of an all arounder. Could win WP, Hunter Under, Reining & Barrels all in the same weekend. It was good stuff.
    COWCHICK77 and demonwolfmoon like this.

    Thanks Csim. Still doesn't seem real. I haven't been able to bring myself to go through pictures yet nor have I started hitching his tail hair. 3 months and it still hurts like hell.

    I figure it does, can't even imagine, my husband and I have had the conversation about Rodeo, and I've only had him for 2.5 years now, can't even imagine how it would be if I've had him his lifetime!

    2.5 years or 30 years, both hurt. Big, dumb animals are good at working their way into our hearts. I've had to say goodbye to many over the years but this one has by far been the most painful.

    I know what you mean-I've had to say Good-by to many wonderful furbabies, too.

    They really are! I try to explain it to nonhorse people, and besides my husband, because he sees me with Rodeo, and knows how much time and money goes into that silly thing, but no one seems to get how important they really are! Do you have some of his offspring around?
