My beautiful of mare, Lady, passed away today. I can't stop crying. I should be happy for her, it was past her time. She is no longer in pain. I should have put her down a long time ago, but I couldn't. Instead I kept her well medicated with the help of my vet.
She was 27 years old, had arthritis, and was blind, but damn it she was my best friend. I got her when we were both 12 years old. I told her all my secrets, spent my days with her. I loved her. My kids loved her. I would have never survived my teen years as well as I did without her.
I hope she knew how much she was loved. I just wish I could go and give her more sugar cubes and love.
I know she was only a horse, but she meant so much to me. :'(
