Re: When is the right time to replace a deceased friend
I lost my mare ten years ago next year and I still miss her. I will never have a horse that will replace her, as many have already said, you can never replace. It would be like replacing a best friend, it just doesn't happen.
I have another horse who is now 28, he mourned her with me so I don't think it will be long before I have to go through it again.
Again as others have said, go and see this horse, the way I would think of it is that everything that you and your horse learned together, everything they taught you, can go and help other horses now. I would do it in tribute to my friend who I had lost, my own way of saying thank you.
That is just me though and you must do what is right for you. I am so sorry to hear of your loss you have my deepest sympathy.
