I do not know how to get over this loss, I doubt I ever will. It is different with horses, I don't know why. But it is true. You connect with them in a way you never will another animal. And sometimes other people.
Scout was a silly little boy, with a great sense of humor. He was sweet and loving and adored children. He had funny little antics and wanted to be the center of attention. But most of all, he was a Mama's boy. My sweet little boy.
The other horses are mourning the loss of Scout as well. They look for him and come up to me and nudge me trying to understand. Even little Tinkerbell was trying so hard to see into his stall, stretching up as high as she could go, looking for him. They are a close knit herd and it is so sad to see their grief.
Roy Rogers once said, "The best thing for the inside of a person is the outside of a horse". I truly believe he was right.
