Wow .. what can happen in a year...

My very very very bestfriend, a year ago today, had to make the sudden decision to let the love of her life be put to rest. She had a beautiful black appendix Thoroughbred named Razz. He was 9 years old when he was put down. I have known her and Razz for a long time. And I treated Razz like he was my own horse.

His Story:
Somehow when Razz was out in the pasture that day, he got his leg caught in the fencing and panicked and pulled and pulled until he was free. I few hours later is when someone finally realized he was hurt. They rushed him to Purdue, being that they were only a couple miles away. Razz could bearly move his leg to get on the trailer. When they got there, it was only bad news from there. He had totally ripped in half 3 tendons in his back lower leg.

She was told that they could put him back together, but he would never be sound again.... Razz was a very amazing barrel racer going on dressage horse ( believe it or not).  He would never be happy standing around in a pasture. She had to make a very quick choice and chose to put Razzel to rest.

To My Bestfriend:
I love you both with all my heart. I feel for you now more then ever, having to go through some of the same things. Thank you so much for being here for me, just like I was there for you (: You are an amazing person

You are seriously such an amazing friend. I am so happy that you are a part of my life.

As you mentioned, a lot can change in your life in one year. You, unfortunately, have recently had to learn that not all of the changes are good ones. I am so so sorry that you have to go through this too.

The best advice I can give you is to cherish every last moment you have with your baby. And, after he is chilling up in horsie heaven with Razzooo, make sure to look back on the good times as often as possible. It will be very difficult. But, if I can be as good as friend to you as you were to me, you will make it through this.

You are beyond mature for your age, Alexis. The way you have handled yourself amazes me.

I am so glad you wrote such nice things about Razzle! I miss him with all my heart. He was the best!

I love you. Thanks for being one of my best friends.

Tell Henny I love him too!
