    We also did not need a veterinarian to help us put a critter down when it was needed. We had rifles of a variety of calibers to meet that need.
    I get that. You have to take care of things..

    There is no way I could kill a horse. Hell, I can't bring myself to kill our chickens when they get old.

    We have the means and with the vet, it was humane and he didn't suffer. After the injection, he calmly laid down and his heart stopped shortly after. Then they let us say goodbye for a while.

    There are still two horses here. The boarder and her paint. The boarder will eventually be sent to Florida since her owner recently moved there. We have another boarder lined up, but we'll see how that goes once the move to Florida happens.

    Big Boy even made the paper one time. A KDH reporter came out to talk to my wife about rescuing horses since it was a topic during the drought in 2011.

    Man, I'm with you on the animals. We had pet rats for a while and I couldn't put them down. They all went to the vet and were put down peacefully. I don't care about the size of the animal - if it's in my care, it deserves the best care I'm able to give.

    My condolences Rick. Saying goodbye to a friend is never easy. And pets are the truest friends.

    I am so sorry. It doesn't matter what the pet is, they are family!
