So sorry. What a lucky horse to have found such a lovely retirement home. Hugs to you both x
Nope, I would certainly not have called the vet either.
What a lovely boy......... he saved you all the hassle of having to make the decision for him and all the horribleness of that; he just slipped away knowing that he was warm, fed, cozy & cared for. He obviously picked his time which would cause the least distress to you all and just allowed himself to slip across to Rainbow Bridge, where he'll be waiting for you in due time.
So sorry for your loss; but at least you have the comfort of knowing that he went peacefully - in his own time - and that there wasn't any distress involved for him.
