BH Feb 20th Update – Solace – Not good news

I was praying I would have good news about Solace but I don’t. He made a remarkable recovery from death’s door after arriving here in December 2012. He grew strong, put on 250+ lbs, and he was happy and doing well. A few months ago that changed – all sorts of tests were run, x-rays, ultrasounds, more tests were accomplished, we tried various treatments – we have a great professional care team. But he has continued to get worse and, despite all of our efforts, over the past several weeks, he has grown tired and more uncomfortable. We love him enough to let go. This has not been a quick or easy decision – it’s been a very heartbreaking one. But Solace wouldn’t want us to cry and be sad. I know he is grateful for his time with us, for the love he’s been showered with, and for the release we are giving him.

On the other side of Rainbow Bridge he will become young, pain free, and whole again. Death is a part of life. We are born in this world with no option but to face death at some point. I believe that death isn’t the end – it’s another birth in a much better place where hunger, pain, and sorrow do not exist.

We ask that everyone think of Solace tomorrow at 1 pm when our elderly stallion will be crossing Rainbow Bridge and become a young steed again. He won’t be alone – I’ll be with him until well after he leaves this earth. Volunteers will be here in the morning to pamper him. Tomorrow will be very difficult on us humans so please understand if I’m absent for a couple of days.

  1. I believe it is almost that time right now here on the west coast. Praying hard for SOLACE’S precious soul and for all of US who love him so very much. God Speed SOLACE.
