The story of Gypsy's sad end has been brought home to hundreds of readers on the Forum. Great care must be taken by all horse owners to guard against laminitis but it still strikes without mercy.
Somehow you, with your postings, have helped to put a full meaning to the expression : "no feet, no horse". You did all you could. But there comes a time to let go.
My father once said to me: "if you had not known the love and companionship of the creature, then you would not have felt the pain of its death".
I do hope that in due course you'll find it possible to take on the care of another horse - horses need sensitive folks like you to care for them.
I am sorry for your loss. I share your pain.
