i just found out 3 horses at my barn got put down today....omg....one was very,very old and could not keep on weight....one coliced all time and was never truly well...the other had founder and lamints.....omg....omg omg it was the right thing to do....omg
thnaks....but casper...she hadn't stood up for 2 days because her hooves were hurting so bad...she walk all the way to the back feild...(thats where they where put down and burried(all execept one)) and thats sad..it's like she knew that if she walked all the way down there she wouldn't hurt anymore...that sounds stupied but i swear!
Sometimes we don't give them enough credit. they are amazing animals and their intelligence can suprise me at times. i'm sorry for everyone who has gone thru this. i have been there, and you are never the same after losing a horse this way.
