So so so sorry :(

Rest in peace stunning man. You were lucky to have such a strong owner who cared so much to let you go when she knew it was right, not when it went on too long.

Thinking of you.

I am so sorry for your loss of your handsome boy Hugo.
It is quite obvious that you loved him just as he loved you. Even though it must've been hard, you made the right decision at the right time. The photos are beautiful and I'm sure you will cherish them forever.
Many hugs!

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.
They were taken the afternoon before he was put to sleep, I realised that I didn't have any really nice shots of him, and I'd wanted to get some nice photo's of him and Billy for a long time. I was incredibly lucky that the photographer that took them was able to come out at such short notice, and on top of that, she didn't charge me. I will be forever grateful to her for giving me such a beautiful memory of my Hugo.

Very young :(
He raced until he was 7 though, first started in the 2 year old races. Had 32 starts in all.
There is little wonder that his legs were so wrecked, such a devastating waste of a horse that could have had such a successful, long term career in dressage, or even as an eventer or show hunter. I had people offering me a lot of money for him when I first got him, thinking he was a WB. No one ever picked him as an ottb unless I told them. Just wish his joints and connective tissue in his legs was as strong looking as the rest of him.
