I think it is great that OP took care of the mini for so long. And got him out of SKA.
Actually, I think Lauraky is wrong: I thought it was all the vicious attacks on everyone, including JSwan and me and Thomas1, who ended up getting banned over the never ending requests for money for a sling which had been paid for more than once, that caused the whole issue to come to a head. I still thank Wanderluster, I think that is who complained about the donations?, for starting the exposure of SKA and her minions. Ah if I had just recorded all the cell calls I got from Lori and dressage geek, people would be amazed at their contempt for most people on Coth, including all blondes. (Before i decided to bail out of special horses.org.) ETA and I am blonde turning grey.
But as people have said, this is not about SKA. It is about OP being great and taking care of the mini for so many years so he could have a good life. It's not so sad when an equine has enjoyed life and gets old and feeble, and has to be put down them. I always like the Coth magazine term for it, "the infirmities of old age."

What was really amazing is, right when the vet was getting ready to inject him, ALL the horses left the hay bales and walked up to the fence line and stood in a row side by side and just watched. Till Curly turned and bit Joker on the butt then it was over, but was just so strange, 10 horses all standing there in a row. Wish I had the sense about me to take a picture but I just couldn't. All we could do is watch them, then turn to the job at hand.
I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!
Wonderful COTHER's I've met: belleellis, stefffic, snkstacres and janedoe726.
