              so timely...

              friend just made a decision to put her beautiful mare down this fall.
              mare has not been well for a while and the most recent battery of treatments didn't help. she just looks uncomfortable almost all the time (although still grazing madly ).

              friend is still unable to talk about the decision she has made. i fully support her but i feel so powerless. words just aren't enough. i do hope we get to take our mares for one more walk this fall when the weather cools off and that will be our farewell...

                Certainly is. My parents are divorcing, and that means I have to give up leasing Paris. It's upsetting, but I know it's the right thing to do.

                    Kelly is a poster child for it, she did such a kind and selfless thing. As did Risk-Averse Rider, who this thread was originally for. "Better a week to soon than a minute too late" is such a hard thought to live by, but is another "This it be right" thing to do. Wise words from Willem. Who was always, always right.

                      So sorry you are going through this, but how fabulous for your parents to have such an understanding daughter.

                        Coreene those are the only words that give me comfort and make me feel humble in the presence of the unsung heroes that give animals the dignity of passing peacefully. Willem is always right.

                          For you all who have been there or will be....


                          Better a week too soon than a moment too late, they say.
                          Better while the eyes still sparkle than wait til they dull.
                          Better while the good days outnumber the bad.
                          Better when it's hard for us than hard for them.

                          It will never be easy for us.

                          As stewards of these great creatures,
                          We have the opportunity to give one final gift.
                          Peace.
                          We grant them peace in lieu of our own.

                          But granting peace, the end, when we wish for more time?
                          Eventually becomes a gift to ourselves.
                          Knowing that we gave a final gift to one we cherished.
                          Knowing it will leave an empty spot in our hearts.

                          Doing it anyway. Because we DO love. And "this it be right"?

                          That is what makes us human.

                          For the love of my horse, I know who I am.
                          And I know love.

                          This it be right.
                          A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                          Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                                Rudys been gone 11 months and 28 days. It feels just like yesterday.

                                I don't think I was prepared for how long the hurt or anger sticks around. Or how, even to this day I would question the decision I made for him.

                                    this it be right. thanks for this thread. im in the process of going through a very tough and mentally challenging time. We have a vet appointment at 4pm. a vet appointment for my 40+ year old pony mare. the pony that i learned to ride on some 15-16 years ago. We bought her for $1.00 from the originally owner who saved her from an untimely fate. Thsi mare taught countless numbers of children to ride at the farm i grew up at. She was the perfect all around pony. she was cautious with young kids, but challenging for those who needed it. She was there for my first trot steps, my first jumps, my first show...and now 15-16 years later here we are.

                                    She is a fantastic little pony mare who looks absolutely fabulous for her age. She only has 1 top molar left and just these last few weeks has started to have some issues eating and her weight is beginning to deminish as she can't eat. I think there may be a loose/infected tooth somewheres as she has had no issue whatsoever eating dinge hay, beet pulp, soaked senior pellets and alfalfa pellets up until this week but we will have to wait and see what the vet says at 4pm today.

                                    Preparing myself for the hardest decision i have ever had to make in my life and preparing myself for the possible separation with a a lifelong friend, and a pony who started it all for me but im not giving up on her yet. we shall wait to see what the vet says. thanks for this thread. i needed it

                                        Conny's been gone since July 21, 2007, and some days it still feels like I just lost him.

                                        The one thing I have, that some of you don't seem to, is that I never once questioned the decision to let him go. To this day, I am convinced that I did the right thing. That gives me great comfort.

                                        Buddyroo, that was beautiful. Thank you.

                                        My little bay demon in horse form was too precious to me to let him suffer needlessly. He wasn't going to get better and I knew it. It was still the hardest decision I've ever had to make, no matter how right I knew it was.

                                        The lines of this poem always get to me:

                                        'And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
                                        I'll gallop across to greet you, and we'll stand there side by side.'

                                        'I have so many things to show you, there's so much for you to see.
                                        Be patient, live your journey out......then come home to be with me.'

                                        Wait for me, my treasure. I'll be home as soon as I can.
                                        Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.
