Great pictures and the video was beautiful Kayty. I'm typing through a few tears.

Somewhere, somewhere
In time's own space,
There must be some sweet pastured place....
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,
Some paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen,
I know great horses live again.

Rest In Peace sweet Hugo.

So sorry to hear of your loss of your gorgeous Hugo! But glad to hear that he is now pain free :)

What a great owner you are doing as much as you have for him! ((HUGS)) to you! :)

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when you first got him, and then when you first started having issues with the lameness...what a both fought a good fight. Lots of hugs

My condolences as well. What a beautiful memory to have as your last one together. Having such lovely photographs taken, him in high spirits... Your smile says it all! May you continue to find comfort in knowing you did the best for him!

**hugs** I've been there--lost my 2 favorite horses 3 years ago, and I had owned them both over 20 years. You did the right thing. NO sense letting him suffer, and you saved him from going down, not being able to get up and being fearful. "Corporal" (1982-2009, RIP) died of a stroke and we put down "Ro Go Bar" (1982-2009, RIP). It still hurts.

Oh my gosh. I am so sorry. I can tell that you loved him very much, and as hard as it was, I feel you made the best decision for Hugo. So so so sorry though.

After looking at these pictures and that video, I'm bawling, I can't even imagine what you are going through and feeling.

*Hugs from Michigan*

Also, did you have a last photo shoot with him because of the decision that was made? Or are these old photos? How sweet of you. You two looked very happy together. That's true love that I see in those pictures.

I'm very sorry for your loss. It's a shame to lose such a beautiful horse like him. My heart is out to you for being such a good owner and doing what was right for him. He's in a better place now. RIP Hugo.
