very sad day
Today the barn manager's horse was euthanized due to complications of the injury he sustained three weeks ago. It was really the right decision but that didn't make it any easier.
It occurred to me that it's rarely the bad horses who have to die. It's rarely the owners who really don't care about their animals who lose them to freak accidents. Instead, it's typically the friendliest and sweetest horse in the barn who belongs to the most caring, diligent owner. This was the case today and our hearts all broke for her.
The only good news was that he went surrounded by love. If any horse has pony heaven waiting for him, this horse does.
Rest in peace, Lucky.
