I'm so sorry! Know that she was blessed with having you and that you made her life good. It's so hard to lose our friends. I know it's cliche but time really does heal up the wounds and you're never put through what you can't handle. I've lost many pets and it gets easier. They bless our lives for a short while and make our lives all the better.

If you still can I'd cut a good chunk of her tail hairs off and braid a keepsake for yourself. I sent my gelding's tail hairs to a lady who made a horse hair pot from it and braided the leftover hair around the lip of the pot. You can choose the color beads so I chose my show colors. I think it helps to have something that was there's to help remember them by.

Very sorry for your loss. *big hugs* I wish there was something I could do to take the pain away. You just have to love them all you can for as long as you have them because you just never know. I truly believe everything happens for a reason even if right now you can't see what that reason is.

I think farmpony really says it best. Minnie may have not been long with you, but she had the best times of her life. and her spirit will always be with you. I've known quite a few four-leggeds who had the same . . . all that love.

And thank you for sharing the photo of Minnie with your dad--I cried, too, but also sent them both lots of good energy.

Thank you all so much. I just can't believe she is gone. Because on Thursday night I went up to feed them, everyone was happy and walking around, I was just talking to her and then the next morning I got the call that she was down.
I am still in shock I think.
I miss her so much.

RIP Maggie Mae I miss you

Oh~ So sorry for you loss! Many wonderful things have been said here. I too think Farmpony got that right on the mark. Your girl had a very loving family! She was a lucky girl to have you all.
~(Hugs)~

So sorry for the loss to you and your dad. Its hard when big tough men shed tears for an animal. Makes it even harder to hold it together. He looks so sad in the photo.

I know, when I took this picture he was pretty much like "She isn't going to make it."
I burst out in tears when the vet came and told us she was to be put down. It is such a sad week this week. I keep going past the barn looking for her.
And PintoBean is really really upset she is gone.

Thank you.
She was loved for about the last year of her life which is something good.

What makes it even more sad is that she WORKED HER HEART out for men that didn't do anything for her, she was lame, and about 800-1000 pounds underweight. She was finally starting to look good again.
