    I am super sorry. It has been sad reading your struggles with him, but the improvement posts along the way have been wonderful to read. They are never with us long enough, but he was fortunate to have you, it was obvious how much you loved him.

    You gave him a very good life--Tristen was so lucky to have ended up with you. I'm so, so sorry for your loss. If you need to talk my PM box is always open. (((Hugs)))

    He couldn't have had a better owner. You fought for him when so many would have given up.

    I'm very sorry for your loss ((((((HUGS)))))

    Run free Tristan

    Oh no...I am so terribly sorry for your great loss. He was such a great friend to you. And you took such good care of him. It's just a shame he had so much trouble with his health. You did the right thing...no more suffering for the lovely boy. He was truly a beautiful horse and your true comrade. Love the pictures and your dog loving him too. So very sorry. I know how hard it must be.

    I want to thank everyone for their kind and understanding words. I've had days where I see there is a new comment and can't make myself go read it, and days where I pour over all of them again. The last month has been incredibly hard; adjusting to a new life after 15 years of having that one big constant has been more difficult than I ever expected. I spent so much time just hiking around the woods with the dogs the first few weeks that I think Meg was ready to push me off a cliff for making her go out AGAIN. But slowly, the new normal is starting to feel more...normal.

    Run free pretty boy. I hope there is a place full of clover and sunshine and no pain for creatures that had such a hard time here. You were a fighter right there with him. ((((((((HUGS)))))) Here is to meeting again in a better place one day.

    Didn't see this until today - so very sorry for your loss, you did more for Tristan than a lot of people would have. He was a beauty and lucky to have you. Run free, Tristan.
