My horse was struck by lightning today.

I am so sorry for your loss. My horse was just struck by lightning on July 12. I know what you are going through. I really am sorry. It's horrible.
I've been googling about this and that's how I found this forum. It's the
worst feeling when it's sudden like this.

Oh, im very sorry for you loss!! Hugs go out to you and my thoughts are going your way!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I am so sorry to hear this devistating news. My heart aches for you and this huge loss. I didnt think this could happen, it sure makes me want to research this a bit as we have a lot of lightning. The death was quick and painless I am sure, and your horse must have lived a pretty nice, happy , loving life with you , if that helps comfort you. Please let us know how you are dealing with your loss from time to time, and use the good people on this forum to sooth your pain, I think we all can sympathize . big hug :(
( sorry about the spelling)

That's a horrible thing to have to deal with and I've always worried about it. My horses are turned out 24/7 and during lightning storms, that is my biggest concern. There have been several horses killed by lightning this year not too far from me.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
