    I feel ya One, Two, Three. My experience was with barn owners and with horse owners. I think HOs are on the whole worse than BOs but there are more HOs than BOs so it may be a rounding error.

    This is not for me or my horse, but there's somebody I know who is considering donating their horse to Auburn vet school. Not going into details, it's a touchy situation.

    For my own peace of...

    Great big hugs to you. You did the right thing. It's always better to let them go when they're still feeling pretty good than to make them wait until they're suffering. Animals don't need to prove...

    I want to add that in the middle of all this, literally, we were given a free luxury car and enough money to pay off our house and a couple of really nice horses all in the same four week period that...

  19. Dealing with multiple losses at once. At some point, you just have to go with it.

    2013 has been the most horrible year for me. I have lost 3 cats, 2 horses and 1 dog. And before you think I'm running an animal torture operation here, all were due to old age or ailments that...
