@AlexS - not sure how old she was.. neither parent had arthritis. Honestly, it's really out of the blue and I have no explanation.

@shaggy - I completely understand where you're coming from! And, of course, my pleasure! I hope it offered some advice and insight into a new philosophy with horses.

@gottatrot - Thank you for sharing your story. I'm so sorry about the accident. That must have been really hard for you. However, you have hope, and you still love your mare, and that's what matters! You truly understand how grateful we need to be for every moment. You're right. She is so lucky to be alive and loved!

After losing my mare after two and a half months together, I know that I'm never going to take another horse for granted. I had waited eight years for my first horse and we were making tremendous progress in her training (as I recorded in our journal) but she was taken from me tragically and unexpectedly. So although she never gave me too many reasons to get frustrated, she taught me that patience is truly the key to working with any horse. She'll be forever missed by me, that is a fact. I am thankful for having had the privilege of owning her and just wish that she was still here with me.

And I'm sorry to hear about your mare, but just remember to enjoy all your moments together.. even if it's only grooming. Indie had arthritis too, although it never caused her any problems and she loved her work.

I totally understand.
This past summer I had to put down my old stallions last two year old gelding. My stallion just went in for surgery and while a full recovery is expected, there is a chance he might not be breedable.
Having a near death experience this November sure opened my eyes to a lot of things that I took for granted previously - like walking.

Each day we spend with horses (or people) is a blessing.
Time is something you never take for granted, because you never know how much you have.

Thank you for sharing your heartfelt and sorrowful stories! It is these experiences in our lives that shape who we are and this whole life journey. God bless you all and your equine blessings.
