I don't really have a whole lot to say.
The horse I had ridden in the two clinics with Jimmy died today in a freak barn accident. No one was at fault. Just bad luck.
He went quickly and I wish I could say I held strong, but I didn't. I was very emotional for a horse I have barely known since January.
Please just hug your horses. He was only 5.
Lad is fine. This wasn't him. He didn't understand why I was trying to hug him so tight, so he bit me Damn horse.

I love my Dublin-ator
I loved watching your videos of the clinic. He looked like such a nice, talented, fun-loving boy. I'm so very sorry for your loss--I can easily see how you became so attached so soon.
REALLY sorry to hear this....
I am sorry, I think most of us have been there in one way or another. It HURTS! Especially when you lose them suddenly.
I watched my gelding slip and shatter his leg after 7 years together
Hugs to you.. times does heal, and it sounds like you have other horses to love on... that helps too..
All my love.

My friend just lost her horse of a lifetime. I had never seen a horse die. You are not alone *hugs*
I am so sorry.
He's in a better place now, doing Jimmy's grids anytime he pleases.
So sorry. No words can really help, but know that I feel for you. And how wonderful to have felt such a love in such a short time. Hang in there.

We've been there too. It's been 8 months. My son still cries.
Sorry to hear that Em.... what a piece of bad luck.... hold onto the good memories and try not to think of the bad as hard as that is...
