I'm not unsympathetic, but you knew going in that this was a lease situation. It hardly qualifies as an actual loss though, since you know where she is, who she's with, and that she's alive and healthy.

Come back and talk to me about loss when you actually lose one to death. I know far too much about that type of loss.

In the meantime, stop comparing your youngster to Shadow. He deserves his own niche in your heart, not just as a replacement for somebody elses horse.
Shadow did die...I'm sorry I must not have been specific enough.

I still have momens where I butrst into tears thinkning of stan. Stan was my everything for 10years and I miss him immensly. Heck just writing this has me in tears.

You have to move on and don't compare your new horse with your old one. Reeco does not get compared to stan as he would come up very very short if I did compare them. Compareing them would not be fair on Reeco, Stan was a "made" horse at the top of his game who was able to teach me, Reeco is unbroken, needs me to teach him but should he learn well will take me to higher levels of competition then stan ever did.

You just need to separate them in you mind, yes stan was special to me and always will be very very special but I have moved on.

Sometimes a tribute of sorts will help. If you write - maybe write a poem, or if you draw create a nice picture. Or a photo collage. Something "in memory" of them. It doesn't make the pain go away, but it can help you move on and focus on what you do have.
