    Default Heart horse euthanized tonight;


    I'm mostly a lurker here, rarely posting but I share my grief with you because I know you'll understand my deep sadness.

    Very sorry for your loss. I'm sure your beloved horse is galloping around at the Rainbow Bridge, healthy and happy until you two shall meet again. I'm thinking of you during this extraordinarily difficult time. We've all been there and it's never easy to lose a friend...

    Default For comfort....

    Hugs for you Juls... the wonderful thing about dressage is the closeness you develop with your partner. I've been through these losses myself and I honestly believe that the energy of that partnership doesn't disappear, it just takes on a different form.

    This poem always makes me cry, even decades after losing my most precious boy. Read it when you have time to indulge in grief and memories.

    Could you bed me down with kindness
    on the soft sweet words of love?
    Could you ride me in your finest
    with hands light as a dove?

    Could you teach me with old wisdom
    by the laws of just and fair?
    Could you be my friend forever
    with a trust so true and rare?

    Could you meet me on the morrow
    with grasses green and sweet?
    Could you free me without sorrow
    on the plains of loam and wheat?

    Could you say farewell with honor
    on the day my life is through?
    And remember me forever
    as I shall remember you?

    (no idea who wrote this, sorry)
    Proud COTH lurker since 2001.

    My heart goes out to you. I have lost several over my many years, and
    they take a piece of you with them. Allow yourself to grieve. One day the pain will go away and you will remember all the happiness you two shared.
    I lost my heart horse many many years ago, He will always be in my heart.
    Many hugs to you my friend! (((((HUGS)))))

    This poem appeared in the Chronicle of the Horse many years ago -- in the seventies I think. I have kept it all these years and went back to my high school journal to find it for you. Horse people write best about these sorts of things. My condolences.

    Warden Hill
    A packet of poppies for Warden
    Poppies are flowers for forgetting,
    aren't they?
    Rosemary remembers, they say.
    Warden, I will plant a bouquet
    of both kinds.

    You never liked light flowers moving
    in any sort of wind. Warden, it's
    all right.
    These poppies are not white.
    They will grow only fetlock height.
    Remember:
    The rosemary seeds I plant for you
    will grow too gray, too stiff for wind.
    Never mind.
    Sleep welll.
    I will grow you a warm farewell
    of poppies and of good spice wmell
    Warden Hill,
    Sleep well.

    So, so sorry for your loss. As exvet said, there are many of us who've been through it. When you're ready (however long that may be), the next one will come along. It won't be a replacement, but you'll find a difference place in your heart for a new one.

    Hugs. Even though it's so crushingly painful when they leave us, what a blessing it is that we are able to share a bit of our lives with these wonderful creatures who amaze us every day with their courage, patience and love
