Pye - a terrible day

We had a huge shock on Thursday - Emily's lovely horse Pye died in his paddock, just dropped dead - he had not been ill, he was his usual self in the morning, ate his hay, but by lunchtime he had gone. A post mortem was carried out but everything pointed to him being a healthy horse - he was only 12 - and the vets said he probably had a heart attack. I cannot begin to say how awful it has been and Emily is heartbroken.
When you have a horse it is a partnership -one that has its ups and downs -which can be very special. There are times when things don't always go to plan, but on the occasions when you are both in tune or in sync with each other it can be amazing, whether its jumping a clear round or having a canter along a grassy track. That feeling is so special and indescribable.



He has left a big gap in our hearts.

Sorry to hear about Pye. I can only refer to loosing furry pets, but I can imagine that a relationship with a horse is so much more. Take care!

So very sorry to hear your awful news. I've never had a horse, but in my life we have had dogs that died and it's devastating.

My heart is breaking for you. I know what kind of relationship my daughter has with her horse and how much a part of our family Henry is. Hoping all the wonderful memories of Pye can give you and your daughter some comfort xxx

Oh Maria, I am so SO sorry. We had horses growing up and they are so much a part of you. Especially if you show with him, take care of him... Give Emily a squeeze.
