I wanted to send out a big "THANK YOU" today to all of my friends and family (blog world included of course!) for your support and kind words. Each of you have helped to ease my burden, in not having to face such a heart wrenching decision alone. In my heart, I have to admit that the decision was made the moment he blew up in that trailer, not this past weekend, but last month...all along I have felt it sitting, a huge lump in my throat but I was unable to swallow the weight of it. I hope that one day I will be able to. I have loved every horse I have ever had, both good and bad, but Shaunti stole my heart because he was so needy of my love and attention. I have put so much of myself into getting this horse right, that I am finding it nearly impossible to let go of not just him, but the idea of him; And the future I dreamed of us sharing.
