As a horse lover, this story tugged at my heart. Colic is such a dreadful thing to these magnificent creatures. I was able to see everything thing you described and could feel the love and pain of the good bye - but more importantly, I completely understood the hope of seeing his flying mane once more as he runs to greet you forever one last time.
I liked the different take on HUH. My heart goes with you since I know how difficult it is to watch a beloved pet suffer, and finally be put down.
Ohhh, a well-written tearjerker. I certainly hope that our beloved pets go to Heaven, but don't want to find out yet. LOL.
I like the phrase "and raised many children in the process." Great line. I like the tenderness of the horse and how it flowed throughout the story. He even waited patiently to be fed. Sweet!
Enjoyed your story very much.
