Me, too! Used to have a whole community and now riding alone almost always. Hired a trainer for my youngest horse... But it is lonely. I loved the solitude for a few years with my older horse but young horses need company on trail. And I need more girlfriends.

I let my new paint get sunburned... Just ordered his SPF flysheet but didn't want to stable him as he just got elevated to alpha for the first time and is so happy and such a benevolent leader... We call him the Young Prince!
The guilt is wicked bad. Confessing feels good, like sharing in a 12 step meeting! Thanks for listening...

Yes, it was very peaceful. The vet even knew how to help him go down so there was no thump.
(you know, I think seeing you in your breeches would make me feel better)

Don't feel bad. Sunburn can happen fast even on a cloudy day.

I am so sorry you were the one that had to make the decision. In my humble opinion, however, it was the right one.

My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Thank you. When he cantered up I almost changed my mind-until I heard him breathing from the run.
He's now in his final resting place.
Haven't heard a thing from my Mom or sister. I hope the cops haven't either.

A few years back I saw, and sat with, a horse that was not PTS when he should have been. That poor thing paddled all night. I decided right then and there, 'a day to early before a day to late.' It really had an impact on me seeing that poor old guy struggle.

Never will I let that happen with any of my animals.

You did right. Take what comfort you can from that.

I confess that I was in my first car accident today. Power steering gave out coming out of a turn. I had just enough momentum to spin a 180 across the road and ended up in the ditch on the other side. I'm fine though. Thankfully I was wearing my seatbelt. I guess that's what happens when your car is almost as old as you are. On the bright side, ending up in the er got me off work today and I got to come home and open my new saddle a few hours sooner.

I also confess that I am so pissed right now! When I took it out of the box and it has the wrong fenders on it! I ordered 13" fenders and these are 18"! They are making it right though without charging me a cent. It just means I have to wait until Thursday when the new fenders get here to ride in my beautiful saddle.

@natisha I'm glad he's in a better place. RIP little guy

I confess I went to see a gorgeous black and white mare who reminded me why I love western gaming today. She's for sale, a tad pricier than I want but I had such a blast then the owner was like 'well I'm on the fence about selling her, I still haven't decided yet' why did she waste my time? Is she just trying to say she doesn't want to sell her to me? Hmm.
