Goodbye for now my beautiful boy!
My identity has left this world.
My Beautiful flea bit grey Arabian is gone.
Run free Stryker! I love you so much! That is why I sent you away.
Prinz and Kizzy should be greeting you. If they aren't, then they are bad horses.
Happy trails beautiful boy, until we meet again.
I'm crying with you, SP.
But it was a good thing you did for your baby. Hard, but good. I'm thinking I can see him now, dashing around with his tail up like a flag, just like the old days.
Run free, Stryker.
So Sorry Denny - I was hoping to get out of the office before you posted this up as like Mel - I'm crying and the guys will be here soon :crying:
Thinking of you Denny
Yup, only took us an hour to get him in the trailer. He wasn't having any part of it.
I am glad it was my horse shoer that stepped up to the plate, because Mister doesn't know horses and he really wouldn't have been any help, anyway.
Paul (the farrier) was a great comfort during the drive to and from. I didn't really start falling apart until now.
He told me what I already knew, Arabians are tough horses and meant to last. Assured me I was doing the right thing.
Sent him home with $50 dollars in his back pocket and Stryker's blanket. He wasn't going to take the $50 dollars but I molested him and shoved it in his back pocket in the convenience store parking lot. I am sure everyone at the store wondered what was going on between the 80 year old man and this Spring chicken.
I understand you can't have the guys see you crying. This is one of the reasons it is good to be a woman. We can get away with crying. I'm working my way through a brand new roll of paper towels. Tissues and toilet paper ain't gonna cut it. My office trash can is full, I just emptied it yesterday!
Thank you for your support. I appreciate you!
I'm so very sorry. It's so hard to tell them goodbye.
Thank you, Gretch.
I put him in an outdoor stall, like there was nothing wrong and told him I loved him and walked away.
I don't know if I did it right or not.
Hopefully he was distracted by the sexy mare next to him. She was in recovery. Lucky her!
Thinking of you Denny...
We have a beautiful area about 100 miles up the Columbia River called Horse Heaven Hills. Next time I drive through I will keep an eye out for Stryker.
Been thinkin of you all morning Stryker we love you and will miss you dearly!
It seems that the universe always works in great ways just like today, providing that mare.
Crying my eyes out ...enough said .......
Love you Cuz!:crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::cryin g:
I don't have the words SP - But thinking of you and as always all the hugs in the world. As the others said he is running free; tail and mane flying in the wind with the sun on his back!
Need to get it out of my system.
So glad you are back!
I know you hate emogies, but here are three more to jack with you.
And, Lily escaped the yard again. Twice in one day?
She isn't back yet.
I give up!
Gonna have to get a new roll of paper towels soon.
Thank you for keeping an eye out!
And, Lily showed back up and made the mistake of showing me the flaw in the fence. Her cover is blown!
Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!
And No, you can not eat my chickens, John!
I'm so sorry, Denny.
I'm so sorry.
Why do I feel like such a bad person?
I just called the vet to confirm he's gone. Have to go back and pay the bill and collect his tail.
Why is death so painful to the ones left behind? It's supposed to be joyful for the ones that have passed on. We are with the Lord, Jesus Christ. Right?
I am a sobbing mess.
I'm so very sorry for your loss. You did the right thing for HIM, even though it is so terribly hard for YOU.
Going to go pick up his tail now.
Denny, so sorry for your loss of Stryker this sad day.
I've read on this forum that the bond humans have with Dobes can be similar to those with horses.
After having Dobes for almost 10 years, I now understand what that means...
Wildfire - Michael Martin Murphy
I never really understood what this song meant.
All I know is my Wildfire is gone and all I have his tail.
Thank you for the condolences.
DT ate my last post--just saying so sorry--it's always hard to let them go--but when it's time and the right thing you'll never regret it, Denny.
He'll always remain in your thoughts.
I couldn't sleep before the decision and now I can't sleep after.
What the hell?
I won't be presentable for work tomorrow.
And, you know what?
They can all kiss my buttocks!
Bet you all thought I was going to say A$$ and get sent to the WS!
I am already looking for him on the camera and expecting him to be griping at me because I am not feeding him fast enough.
Dear God. Please let the grief be over.
Denny, so very, very sorry for your loss. Run free sweet boy!
When I lost, my Misty horse at 37 1/2, I wanted to do something as a remembrance. I ordered one of the cremains boxes that our vet used for the dogs and had her name put on it and put a lock of her tail and mane, her last horseshoe, her shoe pick, phones, and some other mementos of my 34 years with her.
So sorry for your pain. So many amazing memories will eventually fill that hole in your heart. Horses teach us so much...
I'm so sorry for your loss.
You are not helping me with that red Dobe. I also wanted a red love seat for Lily.
Thank you for your support.
I am suddenly having a weeping moment, but it's okay.
My intentions really were to get a red couch to accent my cow hide wall hanging.
Red is not even one of my favorite colors.
Thank you again.
