Finest and Final Moments

Hi! Okay, so I am bored so I figured I would start up a little thread here. Well, most of us have horsies in heaven now right? What were some of they finest, and the final moments you spent with you loved ones who have passes? My finest moments whith my old qh were problably when I would get mad of something and he would just welcome me. I would tack him up and we would go out for a trail ride and then I'd dismoust and he'd just stand these by me. My last memory of him was when I went down to see him, and he was REALLY thin. This is a horse who was named bones cause you were always going to be able to see his ribs (vet said so, bought him that way), but he was so skinny and I knew I problably wouldn't see him again on this earth. It was really sad but he died peacfully in his stall a few days later. Anyone else?

My last memory was with my old qh gelding. He was all white , and he was so sweet , he was already at my house when I was born. And he was old . When I got old enough to vault bareback I would go out to his feild vault him with no bridle or reins and just ride him . . . . . He died of colic when I was 10 . I still miss him soo muchh ):

Our Fancy died badly so there aren't any good final moments. She went after a hard fight and with a needle. We try to remember the good times that we had with her before her final days. She was a sweet young filly who went way too soon

My mother had our old boy, Sinbad, for over 25 years. I loved him more than anything in the world and grew up around him. He was just the most amazing horse. He was a Welsh Cob D X Anglo-Arab and he ment the world to both me and my mother. Though he was highly strung, he was the sweetest, kindest, gentlest horse you could ever of met. He died at the ripe old age of 33 last summer. We suspect he had a heart attack as he showed no signs of illness in the days running up to his death. Infact, the last night I saw him he came galloping up the field. I'm so glad my last words to him were "i love you" because he was just phenomanal. I miss him more than anything in the world and he'll always be my number one boy.

I guess it would have to be Skylar. He was the first horse that I have personally lost. He died at 24 hours old. He was born on May 28, 2009. I saw him. He was out of a friends mare but out of my bf stallion. He was so sweet. He loved people. To top things off he was a medicine hat paint. I had to put him down because his kidneys had shut down on him. His mom had been completely blind and had stepped on him but the vet said that was not what killed him. He somehow managed to get over the gate through the night and ended up lying in the mud from the rain before and got cold. When I checked on him the next morning I already knew that he was not going to make it because his breathing was already really shallow. We took him to the vets and they said that he would only have a 20% chance of survival. I talked to my friend and I told him the best thing we can do for Skylar now is to put him to sleep. I real always miss him. Here are some pics of him.
