I lost my bestfriend this morning.
So I got a call from my trainer this morning at 4:55, I knew something was wrong, but I didn't answer my phone. Then 5 minutes later my sister came in my room crying, saying that Lana, the mare I've been riding/training for a year, is colicking and she may have to be put down.
Then at 6:35 my sister told me she didn't make it. She was colicking from 10 at night until 6:30 in the morning.
I'm so upset, she was such a great horse, a bit bratty, but that's what I loved about her.
It also upsets me because I was at the farm until 9 last night, and she seemed OK, she was manuring and she at her dinner, and the treats I gave her, but she did roll once and she seemed tired (which is not too unusual, because she was super lazy, and always tired). I have seen her roll in her stall a few times, so it didn't seem strange to me. But it makes me think that she was probably colicking then, and I didnt do anything about it.
I know I shouldn't blame myself, but I cant help but think what if.
Anyway, it just happened so suddenly, she was supposed to be bred at the end of this month. But I got to ride her one last time on Monday, and she got to buck me off one last time too.
Writing this made me feel a little better...and thanks for reading.
She was beautiful, Sorry for your loss
Oh Erika, I'm so sorry! She was absolutely STUNNING! And Duncraven Winter Series Champion? Very impressive! Please don't blame yourself. A simple roll and a little tired wouldn't have made me very concerned. I feel horrible for you, and send lots and lots of hugs. I'll be thinking of her today, and probably give my boy a few extra kisses when I see him tonight...
Oh my....I am so sorry!!!
I understand your feeling of loss. I lost my best friend, the stallion in my avatar, recently. We were buddies far beyond just riding and showing. There will be a hole for a good while. Just remember the good times (and the naughty ones).
Our hugs are coming your way.
So sorry for your loss! *Hugs*
I am terribly sorry for your loss Erika, I know how terribly hard it is to loose a beloved friend like our equine companions is. She was absolutely beautiful, and the two of you made a fabulous team!
She'll always be with you Erika.
I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you healing vibes during this time of sorrow.
Aww, I'm sorry for your loss hun *big hugs*
