"The ground shook with each thundering hoof beat, a giant stride beneath a
Loving girl.
When you spoke, you were greeted with the twitch of a fuzzy ear and a gentle
Snort.
He batted his eyelash in hopes of a treat, winning your heart over in an
Instant.
Now the needle inhales the cool yellow liquid as the decision is made to end
The suffering
That same ground shakes as he falls to his knees, the pain subsiding with
Your whispers and your tears.
Next his hind end, as he lowers himself to the ground, to bat his eyelash
One last time, his ears listen intently as you whisper your goodbyes.
A small kiss to a velvet muzzle, as a tear falls to a blanket of hair, the
Thundering ground falls silent with the last breath."
:(i can't stop thinking about him

:) thanks, im trying. Its sooo hard though because everyone brings him up and I can feel myself start to cry, but I don't want people to think im a cry baby..

I was thinking, once you lose your bestfriend, do you ever get the same type of connection with another horse? Because my parents sai there getting me another horse at the end of summer, or the year..but im afraid I wont have the same type of connection with it.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that. *Hugs* Its a very hard thing to do.

As for the whole bonding issue-It will come with time. But you have to be open to it. The way I look at it is your horse wouldn't want you to quit doing what you love. And also, with this new horse, its not fair to them to not be open and give them all of you, as they will give you all of them. Does that make sense? They will love you, and in its not fair to them to be close minded. I was told the same thing, and I thought it was great advice.
There's no rush for getting another horse, that's for sure. And hopefully your parents will understand. But don't be completely against the idea.

Yes, but it won't be EXACTLY same type. Every horse (dog, cat...) has it's own personality, they are just all so different. So their connections with us are all different too.

I think your parents are doing a great turn, and I'm sure you'll be in love with the new horse (from both sides).

I am so sorry I know no words can help at such a rough time..i've been through this as well. When I was 12 I had to put my first horse down, he broke his femur..his name was Tucker and he was only 4 years old. I thought I could never fall in love with another horse again. Now I'm 16 and I have had Cisco for almost 4 years, and I love him just as much as I loved Tucker. Trust me, you will defiantly be able to find a new horse to love, and a horse that will love you back. The next couple of weeks (or months) will be tough, you'll get through it, and things will get better! You're love for Jiff will never fade, and find peace in knowing he is in a wonderful place free of pain.

If you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me.
