Have any of you ever had to put a horse down? How did you feel about it and what were the circumstances surrounding the decision? My x and I had to out his horse down..I felt it was the wrong decision, she had a leg that bothered her from time to time, nothing bad..the x had her on glucosomine supplements and she would run around like nothing was wrong at all most of the time. We boarded her an hour away from us outside of the city, we didn't have a place for her. The people who cared for her called us one night and said she was sick and that she had fallen. We went down bright and early the next morning to find they were painting the inside of the barn and had her locked up inside! When I walked in that barn it was a wall of fumes that almost knocked me on my ass, it smelled sooo bad it gave me an immediate headache. I let her outside and well, to make a long story short, she fell again and they all decided "when a horse starts falling down it's time to put her down" they brought in the vet and injected her and killed her!!! I can barely live with myself because I didn't speak up and stop them. It was my x's horse, not mine, I had only known her 4 yrs. and the other people were "horse people" and I'm a city girl. I felt I had no voice at the time but I should have stopped it! I don't know what to do with the guilt and the memories.
