I don't know but we did what we thought was best for her at the time but of course you can't help thinking what if?

debbie, please dont think what if........you did what needed to be done. you stopped her suffering...she is now at peace.
try to take comfort from her daughter, she can help you as much as you can help her......

Heartfelt sympathies Debbie. It's a dreadful loss isn't it.

She was a beautiful girl - the absolute image of my beautiful big grey Telstar, who was found in his field with a broken back one morning, shortly before he and I were due to move up here to North Wales.

You did your best for her and you will have wonderful memories of her.

RIP to your beloved Bobs.. she obviously had a wonderful life with you.
How astute of your other horse to 'know'. They truly are amazing and I'm sure Bobs loved you as much as you clearly loved her.

She certainly was a beautiful girl, such a shame but you made the right decision, still very hard though.

We lost our ID/TB in November, she was 17 and had been with us from a foal. When we buried her our other horses stood quietly along the paddock fence watching her being carried into the field. After she was placed in the ground they all turned and walked away without any fuss at all.    

Its good that your other horse has a new companion
