    Shot Down

    Two years ago this coming Feburary some kids from the high school decided to skip school. One of them was our neighbor and the other didn't live far away. They did some drinking and decided to go test out there new gun. They shot our baby along with three other horses and a cow. Our older neighbors were home and called the cops, thankfully there was one near by so it didn't take him long to get there. Not long after the cop arrived the boys drove back by the house and waved at the cop, so the cops caught them. They went to juvy and have served their time. I don't think I am mad at them anymore, I just can't understand what would possess you to shot a baby. He didn't even get the chance to fell the sun on a warm spring day after a long winter! He wasn't even a year old! I hope he didn't suffer and I really miss him. I never thought that this would happen to us because we are back off the road and I don't think they would have actually got him if he hadn't been in a round pen because we were weaning him. Thankfully none of our other horses were shot, I am sure they ran when they heard the shot and were out of range. For a couple months after it happened all of the horses would get nervous when ever our other neighbors were target practicing. Rest in peace Lightning Bug.

    I'm a high school student and I am here to say that HIGH SCHOOL SUCKS! All the students are immature drug freaks. (I think I may be immature but sure not a drug freak! Never will and never have had drugs it messes with your mind.

    I'm glad your so forgiving. I don't know if I could manage to like that.

    I cried when reading that..

    Thats just awful :( I've just done my make up for work and now im going to have to redo it. Poor baby!

    I think its great you can be so forgiving. I don't know if I could be that way

    That is just so tragic. The loss of an innocent foal is bad enough but when its at the hands of uncaring kids its all the more heartbreaking. I hope the boys will get their lives in order, unfortunatly that's how so many murderers get their start, killing animals. I have never understood the mentality that can kill or torture an animal or be destructive in any way. Its been awhile since I was a teen but I don't think I understood it then either. You are a kind and forgiving person, Bless you :)

    I know, revenge is not a welcome thought but I reckon giving them a few minutes in the round yard with cranky old stalion I know would probably make me feel better.There is truely something scarey in mind that finds hurting horses fun.I`m going to go talk this over with Sam, get a horse point of view.

    I am so sorry that happened to you, your family and the baby. I had to hold back the tears when I read your post.

    RIP Lightening Bug... We know you are running free up past the Rainbow Bridge.

    I'm so sorry I just lost one of my older horses and that was bad enough but to lose a foal with it's whole life ahead of her I would be absolutly heartbroken if something like that happened to dandy. :(

    Devastating. I could not imagine going thru that. I had a similar tragic experience where I lost a horse as well so I have a bit of an understanding.
    My thoughts are with you.
