I'm so sorry you lost your 'dragon.' They do find their way into your hearts and it hurts so ****ed much when you lose one - for whatever reason. You'll never forget him, but the pain will turn into memories of the good times eventually. Hold tight to those forever.

I wish we knew what happened to him the lady we kept him with called us one morning because sometime that night spmerhing had happened and he had beaten himself up pretty bad broken his leg and nearly torn it off part of the fence was a little messed up from when it happened but I don't think it was bad enough that he could've gotten caught in it and he had little flakes the green paint on him from hitting the fence posts and a couple little this weird green mesh looking stuff I didn't recognize he didn't have a halter or anything on he could've gotten hung and my mom thinks someone might've accidentally shot him all I know is that It would've taken something really bad for him to panick enough to do that anyway hi change thanks what are your horses like

I'm sorry for your loss, but amputation wouldn't have been an option, so don't beat yourself up over an impossible 'could have'.

Horses don't do well with prosthetics, and they're not like dogs or cats, who can do just fine on three legs. Not to mention the money you would have poured into him to keep him from foundering on his remaining feet.

You did the best, kindest thing by letting him go. A leg 'almost hanging off' is absolutely a death sentence for a horse.

No definitely not a trainer I've been riding horses since I was little but all I did was ride and help take care of them some and I never really did much actual training with Ryuu he was 17 and really well trained with an awesome personality I mostly just spoiled him

"Ryuu" means "dragon" in Japanese, and I think Chinese, too.

edit; I see you know this already. sorry.

Sorry for your loss :(

There is a chat room as well, not many people are on it, but you can talk in somewhat real time to people when they are on. It makes these terribly annoying neighing sounds though, so if you are in public put your computer on mute :)
