I'm so sorry for your loss. Cocoa was a special, beautiful mare. She obviously had a long and happy life with you!

RIP Cocoa and hugs to you xxx

I am so sorry for both of you.
A comfort is that they both had long healthy lives filled with love. Thoughts and prayers out to you both.

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

Thank you for the condolences. It was a very hard day indeed. Reading all of your kind words made me start crying again... but inside I know that what you say is true - we were lucky to be together for so long.

Micki, I am very sorry about Henry. I know what you are going through.
Cocoa was my first horse too.

Thank you all. Its really hard to send a horse to Rainbow Bridge but I have visions of Henry grazing in the geenish pasture enjoying life which he was no longer able to do in my pasture.
Kim - Henry really liked mares - he was a bit of a playboy - so I bet he was waiting for Cocoa when she got there. She was beautiful.
