    Hello peers,

    I lost my horse in October 2022 she was very old and unwell unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye to her. She wasn’t put down unfortunately instead she suffered in pain and I’m not happy with the level of care that myself and my horse received it’s very disappointing. I still feel very lost,sad and guilty life just isn’t the same anymore it’s lost it’s fun.

    I also feel guilty that I didn’t get her put down.

    Dear Livvy,

    How terribly sad and, as you say, unfortunate.

    My mother has rescue donkeys, so I feel a bit of an affinity here with you and the loss of your horse. It is important to notice that you are going through the first stages of grief, a major one being guilt. You also say you and your horse did not receive the appropriate level of care.

    If you hadn’t have loved her dearly, you wouldn’t be posting to this forum.

    You say, “I also feel guilty that I didn’t get her put down’. Perhaps you believed in supporting her life and not unnecessarily ending it?

    Tell me about your beautiful horse and how you came to be connected? Horses are very particular about who they make loving bonds with and excellent judges of character.
