Today we said goodbye

I'm grateful for the 28 years he was in my life.
I was keeping it together just fine until my said on the way home from the barn "look mommy, the clouds in heaven are making a big grassy field for Ali."

It is always hard, they get into our hearts. Do you want to tell us more because we are all your friends and would love to hear about your beloved partner. If you had this horse for 28 years, that is amazing. All our hearts go out to you and we are all here for you. We are all saying prayers and sending hugs.

I'm so sorry for you loss, I am sure he meant so much to you in your life. It's always hard to let them go, but just remember they will forever be in your heart.

So sorry for your loss.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Equine24, thank you for giving him this last gift. He was in pain and failing, and you put aside your own wants for his needs. That is the mark of a true horse person.

My deepest condolences on your loss. I'd love to hear your boy's life story when you feel up to sharing it. I'm sure you have a lot of stories to tell after 28 years of ownership.

Godspeed, good horse. You're young again and running free.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It can't be easy, I'm sure.

You're in my thoughts, and know I'm always here if you need someone to talk to.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
