I am so sorry for your loss, that is really tramatic. I am really crying my eyes out. That should never have to happen to anyone. SO SORRY! R.I.P. Apache. He is in a better place now, in the fields of heaven. :(

The only way to know an Arabian horse is to love him.

This made me almost break down crying. A similar experience happened with me and my horse Gent, though he narrowly avoided the tree and jumped a river that was behind it. Im so so sorry for your loss... No one should have to watch their horse die, and especially not in that way...

I'm crying as I read this. I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Apache obviously loved you dearly, and you him. I wish you the very best healing and know that he is no longer in pain now, watching you over the rainbow bridge.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I just read your story... i am so sorry for your loss...... Makes me think of my mare I had. She was my bff, my soulmate. She was an Appy mare named Nellie. One time i went to turn her out and had my back turned, another more dominant horse came up and threatened to kick her if she didn't move because he wanted to see me, but of course I didn't see it. I felt the leadrope move a bit, so i pulled back lightly to tell her to stay. Next thing I knew she was kicked.... As it turns out when he threatened she placed herself directly between me and him to take the hit for me... He had steel shod hooves, and if she had moved he would have gotten me square in the back and probably torn me to ribbon..... I owe her my life for that...
Then 10 months after we got her I went to a friends for a sleepover instead of seeing her... The next day I got home my mother was crying and wrapped me in a tight hug... I've never seen her cry before, or even since... Then she told me Nellie was dead..... Turns out she had abdominal cancer... I wasn't allowed to go to the barn till her body was removed (though i desperately wanted to see her one more time), but I was told the cancer ate into a blood vessel and it eventually broke and my girl bled to death.... It hurts that the last day I could have spent with her I chose not to.... But I am thankful for the good memories, thankful that because of her I'm alive, and glad that she's not suffering anymore and is in heaven where I'll see her again one day...
But I know, a bond like that comes only once in a lifetime <3
