I feel the EXACT same way... I haven't seen my horse in 10 Months. And I have had him for 11 years!!
I live in Alberta for work, and he lives back in British Columbia. It's hard for me, every single day. I can hardly look at pictures without crying. I know how it is. But you just need to think that he is being loved. Turly is free leased out to a 13 year old year who loves him to bits and pieces. Our BO takes extra special care of him as well.
I always laugh and then cry for a good long time. I hope one day you can be closer to your horse again.
