When it’s time for them to go. Today was time (although far too early). It’s very sad.

I'm so sorry. My older girl is in her 30s now and my heart is in my mouth every time I go down there these days. Is anyone there with you?

I'm so sorry I've been there and know how painful it is. I hope you've got some RL support. Try and take care of yourself.

So sorry. There is never a right time for you, only for them and it's bloody hard.

That’s a good way of putting it @countrygirl99. I’ve just had several glasses of wine to help today. Why is it always the good ones get poorly??

So sorry - wine sounds like a very good idea right now

Trivium4all · 13/07/2021 19:57

I'm really sorry.

Bigsighall · 13/07/2021 20:48

Thank you. I know it’s the right decision but it’s still really shit!

Sorry about your horse.
You’re right about the good ones going early, I lost one at 8 to colic. Cried for weeks.

Flowers and more wine WineWine

8 is nothing, sorry to hear that
