My Lovely Crystal is Gone....

Postby suki'smom » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:36 am

November 27, at 11:24 am my pretty palimino mare with her kind eye and gentle heart closed her eyes forever.

I had not been able to talk about it until this point. Even now I have tears in my eyes. Some unknown ailment wreaked havoc upon her body causing her to drasticly lose weight, have runny stools and terrible cramping in her gut. We could find no reason for this. I kept her pumped up with Banamine for three days until I made the terribly difficult decision to end her life.

I asked her to trust me just one last time. She followed me quietly to the area that was to be her final resting place. I kissed the pretty upside down cresent moon on her forehead as the vet injected the clear liquid that would stop the beating of her heart. She went down quietly and I sat beside her and stroked her face until the life left her body.

I buried her in her and Rusty's pasture in her favorite sunny spot. I fenced her grave in with wooden fence and come spring I will plant an apple tree within it.

I feel...broken. I miss her so.

I do not believe that there is some big pasture in the sky where all the worlds horses go. I'm not sure what I believe. I can only hope that come spring someone's property will be blessed with a pretty little palimino filly with an upside down cresent moon on her forehead, a kind eye, a gentle heart, and a spirit that nobody can break.

I love you so much Crystal. We miss you....

I'm so sorry for your loss :cry:
I think you did the right thing, and she knew too that you did.
Think about the good times you had together to get you over this difficult time - I'm really sorry

Thank you. I keep telling myself it was the right thing to do but it doesn't make it easier. I doubt myself. I keep thinking "what have you done?" "Who gave you the right?" But I guess that will pass. I took her blanket off her before She was euthanized and I cannot even bring myself to remove it from where it lay in the pasture. I am a mess. She was such a good mare. I just miss her so much.
