It has been nearly 4 months since Pistol Pete died and I am still having a very hard time with it all. I can't even talk about him or think about him without crying. He was only 3 weeks old but he had an immense impact on my life. I didn't need anything except just to talk about it. Thanks.

I'm so sorry, I understand how you feel. It took me a long time to put the death of my pony stallion, Buzzy behind me. It wasn't so much loosing him, it was the guilt I felt that I should of known the vet misdiagnosted him. I feel I let him down, I still cry for him just not as often.

RIP Buzzy and Pete

I'm so sorry for your hard time Brenda. I know it is a huge cliche but it will get better with time! God sent him to you for a reason and in his short 3 weeks with you he fulfilled his duty. It may not be clear what he was here for, but someday you will understand his role in your life. I hope you are able to find comfort in your memories of him and the fact that out of this horrible situation you were able to help another foal!

Thanks so much. I did find some comfort in a dream my husband had. He said he dreamed that he saw Pistol Pete grown up and carrying Jesus on his back. And yes, we were able to help another foal, Willow, who is thriving. Hopefully it saved other foals too, since our vets are now vaccinating every pregnant mare against botulism.
I still want my baby back, though.

Brenda, I know the pain of losing a foal, and I feel deeply for you. It hurts badly, and only time will help you get over it. You are in my thoughts and prayers.. (hugs)

Brenda, I am so sorry for your loss. I have not yet read your account of this foal's demise, but having had foals I love, I can only imagine the pain it would cause if I lost one.

It is just a thought, but when I lost a beloved dog, I eventually made a scrapbook of him. It helped. I cried many tears, even years later, at times. I know it hurts. I'm so sorry.
