Interesting concept. I had two horses when I lost Aisha, and I know my grief broke the other horse, who went from getting started under saddle to no longer even leading properly (pulling, rearing, barging). A lot of times I went to the barn and wound up just sitting on the ground in the paddock sobbing while holding the halter and lead because I couldn't even catch her.
The people who got her never had a problem with her.
