Hey guys, so it looks like I was lied to! I thought Java getting the flu and needing to be euthanized seemed a little strange to me so I did some digging with his previous owners and they did some research too. As it turns out, Java died in the fall of 2013. How? I don't know, but he died all alone and they didn't find him for days. His owner put his herd of horses in a mountain pasture in May and periodically checked on them. He noticed Java missing and searched for days before he found him, dead, in the trees. He doesn't know if he was kicked by another horse or if he was attacked by a wild animal. He never told me what condition he was in when he found him, but he thought the flu would be an easier way to say it than that he died alone in the woods, in lord knows what amount of pain. How do I deal with this?!
