I came across Dream 4 years ago. I was 21, and had been begging for a
horse since I was 7. When I finally got my full time job, he was the horse
I found and bought. Our time together was so short, only 4 years. He was
a horse who came to me with a lot of baggage. Our first year together was
tough, but once he saw I was going to stick it out with him, we became the
closest of friends. He was one of those once-in-a-lifetime horses whom you
never, ever, come by again. I would have trusted him with anything or
The details are too painful
to get into, but I ended up having to make the hardest decision of my life
for him. He was euthanized on January 26th becuase he had double pneumonia
and several abcesses in his lungs (one possibly a tumor). His chances of
survival were about 30-40%, and if he did survive, his chances of being able
to even go outside and BE a horse were slim (about 25%). It was a very hard
and a very painful decision...that horse was everything to me.
I have cried every day since, it is so painful losing him, and so
unexpected. He was supposed to live to be 30, live at my house when I got
a house with acreage, and be my carriage horse. He always thought he was
younger than he was, and was very spry for his age. He hid his illness so
well, no one knew until it was too late.
Rest in peace, Dream. I
miss you every second of every day that goes by.
