Unhappy Coping with Loss of a Horse

How do you cope with losing a big love sponge on four legs? How do you handle being around people? How do you handle it when your friends don't really want to listen when you need to let out some of your grief or burst?

Welcome, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain you must be feeling right now. May you find inner peace soon and may your horse never be forgotten.

Sorry for your loss too. Losing anything that you love is always heart-wrenching and its even harder when some people don't understand that an animal can be a treasured family member and the grief process is the same as losing a person that you love. I've found a lot of comfort and great advise through this website. My thoughts are with you in this very sad time

So sorry for your loss. I know how you feel, I still miss a mare that was very dear to me almost four years ago. Luckily I had other horses to work with to help me get over the loss. And also I had other people around to understand what I was going through. Many (((Hugs))) and welcome to the forum.

So sorry for the loss of your dear horse-most of us have been through that-& we know how crushing it is. We are here if you want to share more & we do understand.

Welcome to the forum-this is a great outlet for us "horsey" folks.

So sorry for your loss, but you have definitely come to the right place. There is an awesome group of people here and you can talk all you want about your beloved horse. I hope that I have a long time with Hunter and I would be devastated if anything happened to him. BIG HUGS TO YOU!!!!!

Oh, no, Ladyfern - I am so sorry. I am sorry to ask, but did you "lose" your horse to passing or has she just left you to go to someone/somewhere else? There can be deep grief from both situations, but the advice and input given could vary quite a bit from one to the other.

So sorry for your loss. :( I recently lost my lovely gelding who had been with me for 7 years. I find the only way to heal from the loss horses is to let other horses heal you.
