So sad. It's always difficult to lose a good friend.

I'm so sorry, Linda. I know how difficult it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Shreddy knows you loved him and took great care of him. Lots of love for you and Stirling {{{{{hugs}}}}}

Taxy my heart goes out to you and Stirling. I know the how the loss of a furbaby can hurt. I am so glad he was at home and now is no longer suffering. Big hugs to you. RIP Shreddy - you were very much loved and will be very much missed.

And a little black and white dog who answers to Joie and thinks he is a cat. I think you will get along amazingly!

I'm so sorry Taxy....that must have been so hard for you and Stirling. Hugs to you both. As others have said, you gave Shreddy a loving home for all of his years. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Linda, my heart just broke a little bit reading that Shreddy is gone. You did a great job as a hospice kitty nurse. A big hug each for you and Stirling. Remember the good times ~ it lessens the hurt.

You have to prove that you own a ranch or farm for the horse and that the horse will not be used for rodeo or other purpose that will be harmful to the animal. Then once you get the animal home, the hard work begins. It is up to the new owner to break it and turn it into a horse that can be ridden.
All of the horse people I know prefer 'gentling' a horse than 'breaking' it.
