Erika 2005 - 2011

Post by bpaquet on Thu Jun 23, 2011 8:17 am

My trainer's mare just had to be put down. She was a very fancy girl who was a beautiful mover. Unfortunately, she had a compressed vertebra in her neck that was damaging her spinal cord. She was having trouble getting around, and there really isn't any therapy for such an injury. So, she went to the Bridge to keep Konan company -- and probably teach him some manners!

Even though she wasn't my pet, I will miss her. She was a character. She leaves behind a beautiful daughter who has personality plus. I will need to hug the baby when I see her next week.

Sad... Crying or Very sad

That is distressing. Sad Tell your trainer that I'm so sorry to hear that.
You know the mare is not truly gone since she has left a wonderful daughter
behind. (((((((((HUGS)))))) all around.

I'm deeply sorry to hear this. Your trainer must be heartbroken. Doing the right thing for those we love doesn't make their loss any easier. My prayers for peace for them both.

I am so sorry to hear this............your trainer is heartbroken to be sure, and I'm sure her daughter misses her too. Erika left a huge part of herself behind in that daughter, I know she got her personality from her mom. Give that lil filly a huge hug of sympathy from me.

Really... The filly is a pretty good combination of her mom and dad. Mom was a bit grouchy, but that is tempered by dad's very sweet personality. I think the daughter will be a great one. She is brave like her mom and sweet like her dad. It is good that she is here to remind us of mom.

I'm sure she's also a comfort to her grieving trainer too.
