One of my horses died today.
He was such a character, he was so naughty and I will miss him so much.
He was living with a friend. She has just phoned to say she had turned him out this morning, he galloped down the field, fell and never got up. ahae had had a heart attack.
He was 12 years old, so young for a horse.
Ah sue huge hugs. I know how much your animals mean to you.
Sounds like his death was quick and hopefully painless. Take solace in that thought xx
Oh gosh, I'm sorry to hear that. Hugs to you.
So young too. We've luckily never lost a young one (we have Shetland Ponies, most from the Wild Horse Welfare) but we did make the decision to have one put to sleep last winter. He suffered terribly with laminitis and an undiagnosed skin condition. The kindest thing in the end was to put him out of his pain. He was a grumpy sod but such a character, and I still miss him now. It's amazing how these creatures touch our hearts, even when they are only with us a short time Agree with the above poster, he'll have gone quickly, and peacefully.
Sweet dreams, Fillymum's Horse.x
Awww sorry to hear that fillymum big hugs x
Oh no. What a shock, and so sad that he died so young. It sounds like he was doing what he loved in his last moments though,and that it was quick. Do you think there must have been underlying health issues, or does this sometimes happen with horses? (I've ridden friends ponies as a child, but never known much about them really).
Anyway - huge hugs for you. I know your animals are like your family. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

All the world is mad except thee and me and even thee's a little odd!
Thank you for all your kind words.
It was such a good way for him to go......far too soon, but at least he had not suffered a long or painful illness with lots of uncomfortable treatment.
We are so, so sad. We had such a lot to do with Desmond. None of our horses ever leave here before they are 4 years old and we have done all the ground work with them so that we know they have been " started" properly. With Desmond he stayed until he was 8 years old and was the sire of one of the best foals we have ever bred.
He was a naughty, mischievous and such a loving character. He will certainly never be forgotten.
This is such a magical place, your good wishes mean so much to me.
