Great pictures, Lynda! It's so good to see everyone enjoying a "carrot party" in the pasture. I've missed all the pictures and videos you used to take.

Thanks for sharing with us! :)

 Thanks for the pictures of the ladies.  As I remember, they are not shy when it comes to getting carrots.

Hey all,

Ms Stalwart is not doing well. She hurts so much; meds do not seem to help. She is also losing weight. Poor dear is SKINNY, skinny.

I am afraid she will be leaving us soon. She is not happy at all, and, there doesn't seem to be any quality of life left.

I dread the winter with her arthritis paining her so. At least with the Princess I can keep the pain at bay with meds. I can't with Stalwart. It is not fair to her to make her go on. Its just not right. No matter how much it hurts us, there is a time to say goodbye.

Bless you for always putting "what's best for the horse" first... they are lucky to live out their retirements with you!

We had a wonderful time with the Ladies and Elmhurst, thanks so much for having us.

Ms. Stalwart seemed worn out to me, bless her heart.  I know you will be able to tell when it's time, you always put their best interests first.

 Sorry to read this news, Jeanne.....but you always "read" the horses in your care so well. You will know when it is time. Sounds like Ms. Stalwart has possibly already decided for you.

 Give her a hug for me.

It sounds like she's made her decision to move ahead. It's always so heart rending when it's time to part, but she probably knows that her vital spirit is simply being held captive by her failing body now.  

I always like to think of death as the birthing process - a time to leave one realm for another. Just like birth, for some, it's quick and easy and for others it's a long process of letting go. Bless her and your hearts that they may be comforted as you both make this transition.

Jeanne,
I have afraid we would get this post since I visited in May.  She was not doing well, and you were concerned then.  You will know when she tells you it is time to help her cross.  What a gift of love you can share with her.
Kiss her for me and let her know that she has been loved across the miles.
