It was hard not to shed a tear or two for your loss. I'm SO sorry you had to make that decision. It's one that I wouldn't wish on anyone to make.
He's such a stunning horse, I was really hoping he would pull through for you.

*many interweb hugs and good feelings your way*

I bought my first horse today. Reading your post brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry. He was a very lucky guy to have such a caring and loving owner. I hope that I have your strength if I ever have to make the same decision for my girl.

And what beautiful pictures you have of the two of you.

One week today Hugo, and I miss you more than ever. Your stable looks so empty, your halter hanging up on the wall is already collecting dusk. I have tried to give some of your things away to friends, Billy won't be as big as you so most of your rugs I won't be able to use. I could really do with a big 'Hugo hug' at the moment, so I've been making do by sitting against your stable with your halter and talking to you.
I hope you are galloping free with Imppie, Milly and Mac xx

What a beautiful final memory to have of a truly amazing horse. I tend to keep to myself around the forum, but I have always read your posts and looked up to you. You are a truly strong person, and an immensely talented horsewoman. You made the best decision there was to make, and I look up to you even more so because of it.

Stay strong and never let his memory fade. The pain will get easier with time, and one day you will be able to able to think about him with nothing but a smile on your face.

Rest in peace, sweet Hugo. My comforting thoughts are with you, Kayty.

beautiful pictures and a beautiful horse. so sorry for your loss but glad you know you did what was best for him

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it is the risk, the gamble. In any event it is a thing I need.
