The end of an era
This has been a really bad sad day.. I have known a while my horse was pretty sick as she had Cushings. But from today, I am no longer the owner of a beautiful Irish 3/4 Thoroughbred Hunter. She was 30 year's old, and in her youth she beat just about all around here at Cross Country and Show Jumping, nothing to big for her to jump.
She will be missed, and my way of life is going to change big time.


One last photo of my girl enjoying the snow

Oh sweetie - I'm so so sorry. Bless her old heart - 30 is a heck of a good age.

::great big hugs and much love::

Thanks! I could do with a hug about now, feeling a little lost at the moment.She was a good age, and she had a good life. I'v had her since she was 12, so a long time.

::cuddles and hugs::

18 years is a long time, and letting go is a terrible wrench, even though you know it's for the best.

I hope you feel better for a good night's sleep, though I'm sure you'll miss her forever.

::more hugs::

Oh, I'm so sorry! Even when you know pets aren't doing well, it's still hard to prepare for losing them.

Thanks Jen! It really is very hard with a large animal.

I'm so sorry, Janet. I know you were so worried just a few days ago but thought she'd make it a while longer. ::hugs::

I was so hoping she would pick up like before but it wasn't to be.
Feeling a little lost right now. I had her for 18 years. I really can use the hug.

oh wow. I'm so sorry! I had no idea horses could live so long. That's a big loss and I'm sure she is galloping in golden fields wherever she is now.

xx hugs.

She was ready to go.

I have known horses go into there 40's.
