Has winter gone yet? Bella is still with us and yesterday, we put her and our other old horse Jazz out on grass for the first time in what has been a very long wet winter. Needless to say, they both appeared to be well chuffed with their outing.

The time has actually come. Bellas lump has got steadily bigger but up until now she's been alright in herself and her quality of life has been good.. That's until today. her eye has closed and we've had to make the decision to have her put down. I've arranged to speak to the vet tomorrow and a digger driver will be coming to dig a grave either tomorrow afternoon or on Friday. Its  a very upsetting situation but its one that you can expect to come up against if you keep animals.

Sad news, but a you say, if we keep animals its something we have to learn to expect.
Thoughts are with you as a family and of course Bella.
Bella no doubt had a wonderful life with your family.
Still a sad loss, no matter what.

Agree with above, being the right thing to do doesn't stop the pain of lose.
