After we lost our last boy at just shy of 15, I said to my sister, "what I wouldn't give just to hold him again and smell his horrible breath". Yes, it is very hard to let go of our old ones. I am fortunate in that my current boy is just becoming middle aged at 8, but I have two very old horses (35 & 30 this year) that I know I am going to lose soon. We never have enough time with our critters. I am very much for spoiling them as they hit their golden years. They have earned it!
