Had to put down two horses today...

So sad, we had the vet come out and he had to put two of
our horses down. One mare had cancer the vet predicted and
she was in bad shape, she got pot bellied but her backbone never
filled out. Another was a 20+ year old gelding and he had to be
put down also, don't know the exact reason, one day he was just down.

They were both injected by the vet and put down peacefully
to end their suffering. Still sad though, my husband and I got
attached to that old gelding. :(

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Aww, so sorry to hear about this, Small Town Girl. That's always a tough thing to go through. ... I'll pray for you.

Small town girl my thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours. (((hugs)))

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

But, I want to thank you for letting them go peacefully to sleep in a humane way.
