    I'm so sorry mooselady, I can only imagine how shocking and startling that was. It's one of my greatest fears, that one day unexpectedly one of my horses is gone forever. It sounds like it wasn't painful and it went quick. It seems like you gave him a lovely life for however long you've had him, im sure he appreciates that and loved you for it

    ML, I'm so sorry for your loss. Mr Gibbs sounded like such an awesome horse when you wrote about him on here. I can't imagine the shock you're in. Thinking of you, and hoping Gibbs is galloping around in greener pastures. <3

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. I lost my heart horse very similarly and equally unexpectedly two years ago, and it is still the hardest thing I've gone through in my horse life. It's shocking and awful and you can't believe it's real life, and it took a long time (for me at least) to remember she wasn't waiting at the barn for me and not feel like I'd been kicked in the gut.

    There really are no words that will make you feel better, but know that we are sending you hugs and support through this.

    I still miss my mare every day, but am so, so glad for the ten years I got to spend with her. Mr Gibbs will always have a place in your heart and life, but that doesn't negate how hard it is right now :heartbeat:

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    Take some consolation in knowing he appears to have gone on to meet his ancestors in a way we wish all of our animals and ourselves could go ----- quietly without discomfort:)

    Thanks for all your thoughts and support, today is hard, I didn't want to get up, such a sick feeling. It is horrible when anyone leaves so suddenly, gives us no time to prepare or adjust, but so much better than trying to nurse the declining horse who is struggling.

    This would be funny, if it wasn't sad, I debated long and hard about taking some tail, i didn't want him to be running in pastures new with a chunk of tail missing.
