today a year ago I had to make the dreadful decision to kill Sasa. to end her suffering.

i would like to say a year on it's ok, it doesn't hurt,but it does, just as much as ever. I see her pretty little face and pert little ears, huge tum and bum (zoomba classes definitely needed) and remember her sweet kind nature and optimistica playful andrex puppy attitude to life.

I have never felt as safe and close to a horse as i was with her, she was the one, the right one. She loved me and i loved her to bits. Even when she was obviously struggling, her great spirit kept her going and she was tolerant of all the messing around i had to do to try to fix her.

I will never have one as good as her, she was just perfect in every way. I can't think of anything she did wrong in the too short time i had the pleasure of being with her, she was just laid back, loving, gentle, smart and sassy, but above all safe, and reliable.

RIP Sasa - I just wish you were still here as your mum misses you dreadfully and will never forget you.

thanks she was very special, nicest kindest horse I have even known, such a sweetie. Bud is great therapy, he is quite like her in that he is gentle and kind, and he is beginning to show more of his personality as well.

the loss of this horse still haunts me all these years later. She was the one. But at least big Buddy comes close. And Suze has taught me more about how to deal with a damaged horse than any other could have. I thank Suze for making me learn how to change everything about handling and working with all the horses to deal with her, and to have met one really good horseman who helped me to figure it all out. She is now as chilled out as anything, more like Sasa. I wouldn't have had to learn all this if Sasa hadn't been lost, but at least I gained something from the horrible loss.

7 years today she died. And today my uncle died, one of my last remaining relatives. Sad.
Oh I'm so sorry about your uncle. It is sad to feel your family diminishing. I lost my brother and sister within a year of each other over the last 2 years, then Ramsey a month later. I'm still grieving for all 3, so I understand what you're feeling. Let yourself be sad - I held too much in, and felt the worse for it. Hugs.

Nine long years since your completely unnecessary death, darling Sasa. I still remember your too cute little ears and you rather large derriere, but most of all your total gentleness and teddy bear demeanour.

What hurts me most is what you could have become and what we could have done together. instead just such a short time together. Reunited with your best friend Leo. Two golden souls together.

The sadness doesn't leave us, does it? Just dulls ever so slightly with time. Thinking of you and sending hugs.
