At my stable there was this driving team of two huge belgians...Tom and Jerry. Absolute sweeties, and so beautiful.
Tom fell ill and died a week ago. Yesterday, Jerry died of a broken heart.
He just missed his buddy so much and couldn't bear to live without him.
It's amazing the depth of feeling an animal can have. I wont anthropomorphize horses and say they love like humans, but this well illustrates the potential they have for feelings. So sad, and I will miss them both.
