    Best wishes and sympathy to you as well. From one who has been through it a few times, and will again. Stay strong and know you're doing the right thing. Compassion is never a bad thing.

    As has been said before, horses are stoic. They tend to deal easily with their lot in life. But with our retired mare, we just had a situation where I don't even think she realized she was in pain,...
