    What an awful time for you & Apache. I cannot imagine your pain, but do understand that voice you heard. & also the PTSD,so glad you are getting treatment for it. Hope the writing of that awful day is cathartic for you. I do hope you can find another horse to love & care for at some point. So very sorry for your loss.

    I am so sorry for your loss, but so glad you are strong enough to share your story! I am a person that has to talk about things so I can heal and I hope this helps with your healing process. I cried while I read your story... it's NEVER easy losing an animal, they are our family too! More hugs coming your way!

    Wow that picture is amazing! I wished we were able to bury him so that I would be able to go and visit his grave but since we live in town and had no where to bury him his body went to the rendering plant... Thanks everyone.. :) For a while there I actually thought I would never ride again,but thankfully I'm too stubborn to give up my love of horses so easily. The first couple rides were not easy though but I'm glad they weren't in a way. It took me a month or two before I got the nerve to think of getting another horse without having a panic attack. Whether it was fate or Apache's doing I got a gorgeous 2yr old grullo QH colt a few days after Christmas for free. I totally was not expecting to get a horse that soon but I had that same strong feeling that it was meant to be so I didn't hesitate too long to accept. So far I have not once regretted my decision..However my DH has commented to me that he has noticed that I am trying to keep an emotional distance from my new boy Wolf...Honestly I think he is right which makes me sad because I don't want to punish him so to speak for something that he had nothing to do with... Does that make sense? Lol There are so many times where I don't feel strong :( Apache seemed to not like it when I was sad so I try my hardest for him even though he is gone to be happy and not so dreary...

    I am so sorry you and Apache had that terrible experience. It just goes to show how unpredictable life can be, and how we need to love and cherish the people and animals in our lives, it can all be over so quickly.
    I am here for you if you need to talk.
    I am grieving right now too, we put down one of our horses christmas eve, we had him for 19 years.
    Wolf is beautiful, and he is waiting for a spot in your heart.

    I am so sorry. I couldn't imagine...I like to think that our horses are always with us still, especially when you gi to their favorite spots and you stop and talk out loud just like they are there.
