  • He Is Gone

    I helped my good boy over The Bridge today. The cold spell we had, where it dropped down into the teens, told me that I was right a couple of weeks ago.

    And today was glorious. Much warmer. He got to take a sun bath without a blanket on. And he was stuffed full of carrots. And he was loved. He was so loved.

    I am shattered. But I know that it was the last loving thing I could do for him.

          I am so sorry. This seems to be a time for so many to say good bye to their fine equine friends. I still can't believe that Rocky is no more.

          This has been on COTH for years. It is so, so good, and yes, "This it be right."

                  I'm so sorry. I'm happy to hear he got to go warm, safe, and happy though. So many don't get that option. Many ((((hugs))))

                    That is probably the hardest thing a horse owner (or any pet owner) can do....but it is the "right thing", when you know it is time. So sorry for your loss...YOU are the brave one and your horse will always love you...and you, him.

                        I'm glad you could be brave for your boy - now it's time to grieve and remember all the good that he was.

                                    He had a great friend in you IdahoRider, right through to the end. Condolences and hugs.

                                      Thank you for having the strength to make the hardest decision of all.

                                      I know you are devastated right now, but it will feel easier over time.
