I'm so sorry TPO. You and Superdad were awesome. Vinnie was a lucky boy to have you and it is heartbreaking that he couldn't come right.

Hope you are all have space to grieve and rest. xx

You and your dad did everything humanly possible to save him. You gave him absolutely every chance. If love, commitment and determination could save a horse, he'd have come through this but sadly life just isn't fair. So, so sorry. x

What a rotten outcome for you all. Vinnie is obviously at peace now but I feel sad for you and superdad who have put in such a herculian effort for this outcome. But at least you know you tried everything. I am so so sorry.
That is a lovely photo xxxx RIP Vinnie - you were loved x

So gutted for all of you @TPO. You did everything that you possibly could have done to help Vinnie as did your dad. He was such a lucky horse to have you both and that level of care and attention to detail. Life really isn't fair. So sorry.

Very sorry to read this TPO. No one could have tried harder than you and Superdad for Vinnie. Sadly sometimes your best just isn't enough. Be kind to yourselves

sorry to hear this after you tried so hard. The fact the lameness was worsening was a very bad sign, and you made the only decision you could.

I'm so sorry TPO. I think it's fair to say that you and your amazing Dad did so much more than the vast majority ever could. You gave him the best chance of making it, but sadly what we do isn't always enough. I'm sure you are both devastated but please don't blame yourselves - there was clearly no more that could be done. Take care of yourselves.
