Don't get too down, there is always going to be a hole where Chance once was in your life but there are always going to me more horses who need and want your love and care!
Until you can have another horse, see if anyone around your area wants a little help with their horse. Its a great free way to get a ride once or twice a week, and I'm sure the horses owner won't object to you going and saying hi to the horse in the field every so often!
Took me ages to get back into the swing of things when Patch, a mare I was looking after, was sold completly out of the blue. She was the first horse I actually had a bond with and I still think about her every day :'(
