I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your horse, our prayers are with you.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

So sorry to hear about your loss. One of the horses I used to ride 4 years ago was also killed by lighting. Same story as you. Many bigger things around him but he still ended up the one getting hit.

So sorry to hear about what you're going through. The good thing tho is that it would have happened so quickly, that she wouldnt had a chance to see it coming or even know what was going on. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers
