Oh my gosh, you poor thing. It's always hard to let go of the one's you love. So sorry, for your loss.
A lot of people don't understand that pets become part of your family, and the grief of that loss can often be equal to that of losing a human family member. RIP Minnie. :(

Oh my gosh, that is so sad! I bet you she waited until you guys were there with her. How lucky she was to have you guys by her side. What a blessed mare she was to have been sold to you guys, been pampered until it was her time to go.
My prayers are with you guys. All our love from Calgary, Canada.

Thank you everyone, it is still weird without Minnie with us.
I am really happy that she had a good last couple of months. She was such a sweet mare that didn't deserve to be treated as she was, she could have lived so much longer if she wouldn't have been pushed so hard. I feel so bad that she had such a sucky life before us.
But atleast she was happy.
She didn't want to give up at all. I think she wanted to stay for my dad. She loved him with all of her heart, and (Not being a horse savvy person at all) loved her most of all because he was helping her get healthy again.

It has def. been a sad sad week without her.

RIP my sweet sweet girl.
