I am so, so sorry for your sorrows. I too lost my horse suddenly at the end of August this year. It is a terrible loss but you will find acceptance in time. I am thinking of you.

So sorry to hear this but you absolutely did right by your horse. I have lost two homebred youngsters to colic and it is so sudden and shocking when it happens. If you are like me you will spend quite a while wondering if there was something that you had missed or done differently but very sadly sometimes awful things just happen. Oddly, I have a homebred horse called Bisto who is big and brown who has very recently done his first PSG.

I'm so sorry. He sounded a lovely horse. I've been there with colic and, while it's a terrible shock at the moment the fact he didn't suffer for long will be a comfort in future. I promise.

You did the right thing. I think the suddenness of colic is awful and you have to make decisions when you really don't have a straight head but you knew him better than anyone and did what was right for him.

I'm thinking of you and also of Ol, who I lost the same way. Even eight years on, I still think about the "what if's" but I know in my heart I did the right thing too. I hope that knowledge will stay with you.

RIP Bisto
