How We Met

I was planning to breed my mare, so i needed a different horse for 4-H. This is before i got my other horses. He was lent to me and I trained him english and we jumped together, he never refused a jump. I have never held such a strong bond since the one i had with him. The second day of horse camp, he was acting funny and was nipping and stricking at other horses through his stall. He was pacing and he was a mess. So we tied him up in his stall thinking he just didnt want to be in there and he was being bad. I went to eat supper, then this kid ran up to me saying that my horses hoof was caught in the hay net. I wasnt too worried but i walked down to his stall anyways. From where i was i saw a bunch of people around his stall and a cop car. I became very scared and ran as fast as i could to his stall. When i got there they wouldnt let me see him or go near him. I pushed through them and caught a glimpse of his hoof i was broke off. I went into shock, everyone told me lies saying he would be okay. I was hysterical and frightened i loved this horse so much. Why did this have to happen. Finally i was dragged away so they could sedate him and take him to the vet. They put him down because there was nothing they could do. The only good thing that happened that night, i found out the next day, was that the 4-H decided to pay for all the vet costs. I was too upset to be thankful then but now i am so grateful because as a single mom there was noway my mom could have afforded it. I later found out that he had freaked out and reared up getting his foot caught in the hay net. He tried everything but he couldnt get free and thats how he broke his leg. To this day i still dont know why he was acting that way because he usually was so good and the first day in the stall he was fine. I miss him so much..

HI AGAIN FROM PETITE FLEUR
Thank you for your kind e-mail. I cried when I read about Tux the first time, and again, this morning. I am going to see my mare today and check on her. You and your human & horse families are in my prayers.

Hi from France
I cannot put in words the sorrow for this loss of your beautiful Tux. I cannot imagine what you have been through! I have a vote for him because he deserves all the votes a loving horse could have. I worry about my paint mare who just went to her winter horse boarding on a farm (not far from where we live!) because I cannot see her 24 hours a day. I hope your pain is relieved with friends close and afar. Do not blame yourself, life is a mystery and this was not your fault. Keep in contact

Tux was beautiful! I'm sorry for your loss. That's a really sad story! Also, could you please vote for Aoife for December HOTM? I ride her in lessons and leased her this summer, and she's a wonderful horse. She really deserves to be HOTM. If you could vote for her I'd really appreciate it. Voted for Tux!! --Aoife--

Hi
I'm sorry for your loss. I also lost my first horse, and nothing since can come close to the bond that we had. Here is a vote from us.

Oh honey, I am so so sorry for your lost. No words can ever comfort nor help. I had two mares stolen and one gelding awhile back, and they shot my gelding in the head cause we would not load in their trailer. All they had to do was let him go. I feel that when I die he will be at the gate waiting for me to go ride. Gentle wishes, Debs

Come visit me, Sonny & Trace.
