    Ohhh nooo. So sorry to hear Suz. :( The pain of loss is the price we have to pay for the love we get to share with our furry family friends. Condolences, thought and prayers.

    @horsebikerider (and @mtnbikej), thanks for relaying this news. My condolence to you, and good thoughts for the care you gave your beautiful friend Licorice. He was a lucky animal to have such a good owner see him through advanced age. Salute to you; may time work its magic on your loss. Peace to you both.

    Sorry about your loss. It’s amazing how our animal friends can bring out the best of ourselves without any of the baggage our human family/ friends can bring.

    Hard to read, but hard to read because soooo meaningful. The grateful part for all involved are those many years of love.

    Take care all...Run On Licorice!

    My sympathies @horsebikerider . This is always a tough decision and now allowing him to run the rainbow bridge pain free. Your loving and caring for Licorice all these years is a wonderful enriching experience. You'll have pleasant memories of him, so he will live on in you.

    Conodolencecs, @horsebikerider and to you too, @mtnbikej. Horses are awesome critters, loyal to a fault, and beautiful animals. Their handlebars may be a little weird, but they pay closer attention to what you want than your bike does. Good to know he's not suffering.
