So sorry for your loss. It's amazing he shared virtually his whole life with you- can we all be so lucky as to be surrounded by the people who love us when we go.

Wow its almost a week already. I want to thank everyone for the support, I did not realize what a void he left in my heart. Without thinking I was getting ready to go feed on Wednesday night, I think it took everything my husband had to stop me. Well my house is really clean, Its weird how much time I have on my hands. But its weird, I feel more at peace then sad. I feel he stayed around the last week or so for me, he knew I needed just a little more time. I still have a lock of his tail in my truck and I don't know what to do with it. I guess that will occupy me for a few days.

So sorry for you but glad you have your memories. I''m in the UK and my friend lost her 7yo to colic last week. She had him pts and textd me as she was saying her goodbyes. I told her to bring some of his tail as I have recently had bracelets made for gifts from my horse and foals tails. She's now having a bracelet made for each of the family as a last gift from her horse. Maybe you could do the same so you always have him close xxxx

I just read this thread and tears started streaming down my cheeks immediately. I also lost a horse that I had, had for 24 years. I am so happy that you are feeling peace now. The happy memories get us through the hard times and in 28 years with your beloved friend, you made many memories to enjoy. I hope your guy is enjoying his lovely grass field made especially for him in heaven.

Maybe you could have the lock of his tail woven into a bracelet?

Hang in there, friend. ):

So sorry for your loss, I'd have lost it as soon as a kid said something like that too. Kids are so tuned into that kind of thing it's really sweet and encouraging a few years ago my friends dog had to be PTS and his little brother came up to me and said "Hazel is a fairy now", made me tear up. Ali will be waiting for you across the bridge, until then he will be running through big open fields and eating as much as he desires. RIP Ali.

Missing my Horse

I feel weird having no horse. Like lost or something. I was looking at this picture today, its when my son was 3 and I pulled my horse out of retirement and he took grand for his division (leadline). I was so nervous about how my horse was going to be, and he couldn't be any more careful and good if he tried. I think he liked doing a few shows. At the time my horse was 30. I have had him for almost 29 years. Its the only horse I have ever ridden in that time. I had him since I was in high school, and then I met my husband at a horse show, and I saved him from a barn fire. God the life we had together. The things we have been through. I just wanted to share.

I'm so sorry for your loss. He looked like a wonderful gentleman with your son on him. Those of us that have had a horse like that in our lives realize, often after they are no longer with us, how truly amazing they really were. Give yourself time, and who knows, there maybe another waiting for you to find him.

Take care,

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a handsome horse he was. It can be such a difficult choice to make. You showed him just how loved he truly is by letting him have peace.
