Just found my wife's horse dead in the pasture. Just laid down and died
A lot of things to do.
So sorry to hear that. Please extend my sympathies to your wife.
I hope you're not planning to try to bury it by yourself. Do you know
someone with a backhoe?
My wife is pretty broken up. JJ (Jump for Joy) has been part of our
menagerie for about 10-12 years. A big black walker with a sweet
disposition. The biggest disappointment was that we had just had the
vet out to check JJ and he remarked at how healthy she was at age 33.
So, we thought that she might last through another winter. I had just
finished work on the floor of her stall and we had put away a truckload
Fortunately, a contractor with a backhoe is working nearby and came over
yesterday afternoon to put her in the ground. Not a trivial job for a
1200 lb animal! She is buried near a weeping willow tree that she loved
to scratch herself on. My wife planted that tree when we first moved
here 20 years ago.
So, the worst part is over and what remains is getting rid of a ton of
horse supplies that we had accumulated over the years.
We will miss the twice daily ritual of caring for her.
In a way it's best that your horse died the way he did -- naturally,
and at the end of his life. I just hate putting down an animal and
watching them die. It's something that will stay with me for the rest
of my life. Very sorry for your loss.
Yes, she (the horse) gave us a gift. We were not looking forward to the
eventuality of making the decision to put her down. Two years ago she
was exhibiting a persistent bronchial problem that we could not resolve
and thinking that we would have to put her down, we dug the grave. She
got better! So, I filled it in for safety reasons. We had talked
frankly with two vets and both warned us that horses can die hard with a
lot of trashing around. So, we got to spend an additional two years
with her and she died peacefully.
One of our neighbors was especially fond of her and would bring his
family to visit her, feeding her treats. The day after she was buried,
I found him at the grave-site with his Buddhist prayer beads, crying as
he said goodby.
OK, I'll take back something I just wrote to Jeff. There is
something to be said for Buddhism. Bertie Russell said it
was his favourite of the "great" religions, because it had
done the least harm. That was before Pol Pot though, if
Pol Pot was Buddhist.
How about the Buddhism in Myanmar concerning the Rohingya?
The question concerned Pol Pot -- who was an atheist, as are most Left
Wing mass murderers -- Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pot, etc. Buddhist are
obviously not entirely pacifist. Probably quite a few Buddhists at the
Rape of Nanking, and various other atrocities committed by Japan in
BTW, I worked with a Cambodian who as a child escaped Pol Pot. His
father and uncle were not as fortunate. Thanks to evil American
capitalism and sponsorship by an American church, he came here
penniless, unable to speak a word of English, now owns two homes,
earns north of $100k, and is still a Buddhist.
