I thought he was dead.
It happened yesterday, I went to go feed Joe like every other day and as I got to the stables my heart sunk to the pit of my stomach and I ran as fast as I could to the paddock to see my boy lying down in awkward pose with this paddock mate looking down on.him.
Being 15 the first thought that popped into my mind was he's dead. I screamed at him to get up, but he stayed on the ground, I ran to get his halter and as I got closer to him he lifted his head, saw me and got to his feet and neighed wanting his dinner. All I could do was stand there and burst into tears, I was so close to losing what I loved the most.. It was the worst feeling but it proves how much love we have for our horses.
