    Blush, I can't even begin to fathom what you're going through right now. I'm sitting here in absolute shock, and I don't even know him! Please fill us in when you feel up to it, but don't feel obligated to recount it until your ready.

    Oh, blush, how devastating. I can't believe it.

    I adored Robbie and thought he had serious potential as show hunter, I loved it when you posted photos of him. What a loss.

    Please, when you feel up to it, let us know what happened. So sorry.

    I'm really sorry this happened but you can be assured that you made every effort to save this horse and you gave him every option that you could. I'm sorry.

    I'm so terribly sorry to hear this. :(
    I had watched this thread and was sure he was going to recover.
    As someone going through something similiar, I understand how incredibly painful it is - like someone ripped your heart and dreams right out of you.
    You fought and tried so hard, and unfortunately that's all we can do, even when mother nature has a different plan. :(

    Thank you all for your kind words, support and condolences.

    I'm still in shock. I feel numb to everything right now. I went through the worst day of my life yesterday and I still can't catch my breath.

    Basically what happened is that we think he kicked his stall wall yesterday morning. His leg broke open again, right back to the original injury 6 months ago. Everything that "healed" was gone and the vet could put her fingers right into the opening and touch the fetlock joint and cannon bone. Everything we had worked so hard for was just gone.
    We got another vet from a difference practice to give a second opinion. He was amazed at his progress but told us that he should be PTS. We could do surgery, casting, stall rest, etc all over again and he could be a semi-sound pasture pet at best. His fetlock would have to be fused together and he would always be lame and in pain. He would never run or live a normal life again. I couldn't put him through that so he was put down.

    I was lucky enough to say goodbye but it doesn't really matter when my heart is ripped out of my chest.
