Worst Day Of My Life

Worst Day Of My Life

Just had one of the worst days of my life!! Took my daughter to local horse sale / auction, she has always had horses and only sold her last one 18 months ago so she could get a car. She is about to turn 19 and was looking for a young horse that she could break in herself.

We found a beautiful one who was around 16’2 or his bum was around 6ft of the ground. I lent her money to get him as I knew she had her heart set on him, and although he was more than we wanted to pay she got him. She was so happy it was one of those perfect dad days.

We had a friend with a horse box who offered to take him home for us, but we could not get him to go in the box. Another friend that was helping said they would go home and get there horse truck as they breed and train race horses. We put him in a holding pen and called the vet to give him some sedition.

He was at the sale with his two sisters who were a year younger than him, when one was being put into a horse box just down from him, something spooked it, he then went nuts to get to her, jumped the pen and broke his leg just as the vet arrived. He had to be destroyed, I have never felt so shitty, that beautiful animal, everyone was in tears, and my daughter was distraught.

I can never face another horse sale; all he wanted was go to the aid of his sister, a noble act that ended in his death, I shall always remember bold NEMO, may he always run free.

To be so high and to drop so low. It is frightening how drastically life can change within mere minutes–and very humbling when it occurs for such nobles causes. What a bad, bad day.
