    I'm so extremely sorry. That happened to a TB of ours years ago. It's so unfair.

    Prayers & hugs from Virginia.

    Oh no, I'm so sorry. What a sad way to start off the new year. Godspeed to your boy.

    So sorry for your loss. I also lost a horse that was not mine once. It was my first paid ride and he was related to my mares I now use for breeding. It was a tough call to tell his owner what happened. I feel for you and I am so sorry for your loss.

    Everyone's nightmare. They are so magnificent, but so delicate.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

    I know the horse world is small... by any chance was he leased by someone named Annie...?

    So hard to lose the good ones.
