    well hes not my horse but he is my cousins horse, and i take care of their horses and ride them too. And a couple weeks ago one of the horses had a stroke, and fell, and kicked theboards next to his stall down, and he got all cut up, and he had to be put down. I feel realy bad because i just found out about it yesterday, and i havent seen the horses lately.

    Has anybody ever had that happen to their horse?

    I remember how my Aunt's horse died. He broke his back while on a trail. [​IMG] He had to be put down. And a horse at my riding stable broke his leg. He was my favorite horse, the one who had first made me comfortable about riding. He had to be put down too. [​IMG]

    I'm terribly sorry for your loss! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As hard as it is to lose and animal, it is part of life. I had a Mare, she was 32years old and I had to put her down. I was only her second owner and I am friends with the other owner. It took me almost a year to make the decision but it was the right decision for her. Her quality of life was going down hill and her mind was gone.

    If your horse had a stroke, it probably would not have had any quality of life and as sad as it is, putting it down was likely the best decision.

    Sorry for your loss.
