Awww I'm so sorry but when she goes don't think about her being gone think about all the good times you had. And remember that she'll always be with you no matter what.

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.

I know... I have a daughter that I have to be strong for, and I knew this day would come. I hope that one day we will meet again and be able to have that trail ride that I had promised her before all this happened. Thank you everyone for all the kind words. I am glad I found a place where everyone understands all this so well. I am truly sick of hearing "oh its just a horse" lol we all understand better :)

I certainly can understand the sadness you are feeling about life without her. My horse Cocoa (she is 31) and I have been together for 24-25 yrs now. I am scared of the day when I have to let her go. I am 38 and can't remember a time without her in my life.

Cherish the days you have left and always remember the good times.

OXOXOX

Kim angel, I know what you mean. I got Bella when I was seven, and she was there for everything in my life. Thank you BLAZERIVERSONG.

She looks like an angel in that last picture the way the light shines on her. Or the focus on the camera... just like an angel.

I think your dear girl should be a poster child for responsible horse ownership. Every person who's ever made the excuse of "old horses always look old and ribby" needs to take a look at you and your spectacular care. The fact that she has cancer is even more a testement to what loving, dedicated care can do.

She's absolutely breathtaking. I'm terribly sorry for your upcoming loss, but good that you guys are prepared to make the decision while she's still able to enjoy life. The wisdom those eyes hold is just touching, and I'm sure you'll be able to go on without her knowing how many years you had together.

*hugs*

Thank you so so much. She weight isn't always great, but I work very hard to keep her healthy and happy. We have another 28 year old QH on the property that doesn't look a day over 15, and a 21 year old TB that's gaining weight quickly. This place is a Haven for all old horses, there is something special here... That why I have Bella here, her last year has been wonderful and stress free. (plus she gets carrots and hot mash and she has little kids that dout on her lol) Again thank you so so much!!!!
