Hey I've been here for a while.. but can't even remember the last time I posted.

I had a 15 year old gorgeous Morgan gelding named Shoomer who died suddenly on new year's eve. He had colic surgery in early september where they discovered a giant tumor where his left kidney should have been. He was recovering perfectly and acting normal with no signs of pain then he passed away while eating hay in his field. The university of Minnesota is doing an autopsy because they're all lost as to the cause and want more information.

I was wondering if any of you have gone through similiar situations or have any tips for getting through this? Help would be very apprecited. Thanks.

I just lost my mare .. the love of my life in November to cancer. I had to make the decision to have to put to sleep. As for tips to get throught this ... take it one day at a time. Don't count on people who are not your equine friend to help you because they just don't understand. Always remember the good times, cherish those memeories close to your heart. That is basically all the advice I can offer

i'm so sorry to hear about your horse. :( *hugs* just try to remember the good times you shared with him. i'm sure he knows that you love and miss him. i've never been through anything like this before so i don't have any advice, but i am very sorry that it happened. take it slow though, i know it's got to be hard.

hey, im sorry to hear about your horse. living on a large horse farm i have lost many to all sorts of illnesses. i had a 6 year old TB gelding off the track die 6 months after his colic surgery(he also had ulcers). and like everyone else has said, all you can do is just remember all the fun you had with him, and take it one day at a time. go get a stuffed animal too, thats nice sometimes : ) no ones ever too old. plus your horse friends can definitely be comforting. its always hard to lose a good friend. my Jake died almost 6 years ago now, and i still can remember many of our shows and trail rides and his kind eyes. i wish you the best.
