    I lost my beloved horse, Image, to the same kind of injury. It was the very worst day of my life. Please accept my heartfelt condolances.

    I remember seeing you mention him in your posts; it always sounded like he was well loved and a credit to his owner. I'm very sorry for your loss.

    {{{{{hugs}}}}}

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I almost lost my beloved QH gelding last year. Worst time I ever went through.

    God speed Shadow.
    If you cannot set a good example, at least serve as a terrible warning....

    Unhappy Sympaties and Prayers

    There are no words that can help you with the grief you are feeling right now, but just know that I am praying for you and I hope you realize that we all know the deep relationship you had with your boy ... he was so gorgeous.

    Oh my. I am so sorry for your loss. What a tough thing to handle.

    He was a gorgeous boy and it sounded like you two were quite the team.

    I'm sorry for your loss as well. I had a horse kicked last week and badly injured, but he should pull through. Sometimes we forget how big and powerful they are, and so fragile at the same time.

    My heart goes out to you in your time of deep heartfelt pain. Words do not express how sorry I am for you right now. Godspeed dear Shadow. You are a beautiful, much loved boy!

    This was sent to me this morning. It made me cry again

    Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals that had been ill and old are restored to health and to vigour. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, someone who was left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver,

    Suddenly, he breaks from the group, galloping over the green grass, faster and faster.

    You, Norval have been spotted, and when you and Shadow finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happyness rains upon your face; your hands again caress his beloved head and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your beloved horse, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... forever..


    Take good care Norval.
