Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
You are far braver than I. I've had to take several beloved dogs and a cat (the only cat I've ever loved), to the vet to be put down. I've also had to have horses put down. But, I just don't think I could take my 45 to them.
We have an old guy now; that has been with us for almost 20yrs. He is very, very special! He's more like an old lovable hound dog & a member of the family than anything else. I swear if we had room, he'd stay in the house. (A friend of ours has a huge home with an "attached" barn; where some of his horses actually have their stalls as part of the house.)
I would love to have something like that for our special guy! He's the most intelligent & level headed horse I've ever had the pleasure to be around. We don't ride him anymore because he's arthritic. In the next couple of years we'll probably take him to a retirement farm. We have done this with several special horses. There they get to live out the rest of their days in huge wide open pastures. When they get to weak, sick or old, they are humanely put down & buried in their own grave.
