Hello everyone! I volunteer at a horse rescue and one of our horses is being put to sleep tomorrow at around noon. He has recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) which is very similar to asthma in people. Before coming to us he was severely neglected and didn't receive medical attention for his illness. Because of that, there is too much scar tissue in his lungs and he has to gasp for every breath he takes. I am sad that he won't be with us anymore but also happy because there will be no more suffering for him. Right when he makes his journey to Heaven I plan to get a manicure and pedicure to ease my stress. I've been begging God to take away his pain no matter what He wants to do. I will be going to the barn this evening to participate in a feed shift and it will be my last time seeing him. I plan to arrive a little early so I can have some alone time with him and say a proper good-bye.
