I have heard so many timea the past 31 days "It will get easier as time passes." Guess what, I am as lost today as I was when Silent Omen aka "Ben" take his last breath with his wonderful beautful head laying in my lap as I tried to bravely say good bye to my beloved AQHA stallion that had been my whole world since Oct. 25, 1998. When I was in a wheel chair for a year Ben made me whole, but I couldn't make him whole again and COPD and cancer quickly took my beloved horse. Does it ever get better because from here it has not yet.

It's only been a month. It's going to take many more months before you start feeling whole again. Grief takes time. You'll never not miss him, but the pain will get easier to bear.

I couldn't even say my boy's name without bursting into tears the first year after his death. The second year I could talk about him without too much grief, and by the third year I was remembering the good times more than those last few bad ones.

My horse has been gone almost 6 1/2 years now, and the anniversary of his death passed without more than a sigh of want and a small tear. You'll get there too, I promise.

KRDaddysGurl, I am so sorry to hear of your loss.

For many of us, each time one of our animal's pass they take a piece of our hearts with them.

It has been 4 months since I lost my horse from COPD. I still cry every day over missing him. I had him for 10 years. He was only 14. We had an amazing bond and so much trust in each other. I worked very hard to keep him as comfortable as possible for the past 3 years but I knew in my heart that I wouldn't have him as long as I wanted to. It is ok to grieve, it is a healing process.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, friend.

It sounds like he was a very special horse, and will always have a place in your heart and mind. Like was said above, you'll always miss him... But it'll get easier to bear. You're in my thoughts.
