I am SO sorry to hear of your horrid experience. And of your recent health problems. Oh my.

You have my sympathy for your loss, and may your health return quickly.

In thirty years as a veterinarian, I have given thousands of penicillin shots. I have had one severe reaction. People can react to it too. I am so sorry for your loss. It is not your fault; it just happened.

I watched your videos. What a lovely horse. This is a terrible loss but you had no choice. He was too special to let him suffer needlessly.

I need to go get a Kleenex to dry my eyes now. I am so sorry for you. Hugs.

Carpe Diem!

I'm so sorry that happened. My heart breaks for you. If you need someone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Feels like I haven't been on in ages. I'm sorry again for abandoning the forum. There is just a selfish part of me that can't really stand to see others and their horses being 'happy' together. If that makes sense? I hope everyone is going well and your support is so kind. I still honestly can't believe it, although it has nearly been two months.

Take your time Maddie...It's natural to feel that way.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

The pain will always be there, but it will ease. It will become less raw. I am so sorry for your loss.

That is one heck of a story. It reminds me of how hickstead went down as well. They are athletes like most of us, and you can never guess how one might react to drugs or treatments or anything you do to aid them. It's one of those things you could have have not prevented from happening. Im glad you were able to make the decision to allow him to cross the rainbow.

I cant imagine what you went through, what a sad story but I feel relieved of the outcome he had-only because of the amount of pain he would have been in and the long term problems he would have had.

Hope you are able to heal with time, and I hope he is able to inspire you to find another special horse.
