    [​IMG] In less than an hour a vet will be here to put my husbands very first horse down. So sad to see such a great animal that is soooo young. He is only 8 y/o have to be put down.

    I hate the waiting I know it is better for him. He has three holes in his navicular and after many months, different vets, and many hours he is still not able to be comfortable.

    R.I.P. Dusty you will hold a part of my heart that no one will ever fill....... Thank you for taking the time to listen to me vent [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So sorry to hear that. Having to put any animal down is the hardest thing to do. At least he'll be at peace now. [​IMG] to you and your dh...[​IMG]
