Thank you all very much for your support, it means a lot.

It was traumatic, but I believe it was the best thing for him. The many surgeries he would have to go through would have just been awful for him. The rehab probably would not have been successful, especially his mind. He would have suffered too much mentally, he never would have been happy.

I cry even thinking about this...I'm such a wimp.

My heart is always with you Maddie, and I'm just a facebook message away if you need me. He was one of a kind and he knows how much you loved him.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Deciding to not do that surgery must have been so hard, but it really sounds like it was the best bet. I often fret over the decisions I would make if something was to happen to one of my beloved pets, but to actually have to make that choice...

There's no way that he didn't know he was greatly loved when he passed, and that's really all that matters.

I'm very sorry for your loss, it sounds terrible.

Sometimes we only have people or animals in our lives for a short time, and it's so sad to see them go but we learn so much from them. At least we have that.

oh sweetie.....I'm crying, I don't know what to say....I'm so sorry, Chinga was such an amazing horse I know it meant a lot to him that you were at his side when it was his time to go

Yes, I so agree. When we are putting them through stuff with little hope, it's for us, not them. And cruel in my opinion.

Thank you for making the tough decision for your horse. And I am sorry you had to.

Thank you all.

I keep telling myself it was the right thing to do, but question it regularly. Thankfully, school keeps me busy. It's such an awful feeling and experience. I'll never forget the condition of his face.

I miss him more than I can explain :(

As time goes on you will soon understand you made the right decision. It may take a while, but you will know.

You seem like a very strong person, and you will pull through this.
