A friend of my best friend just had to put her horse down because he broke his leg... my best friend wants to say something, but doesn't know what to say... any suggestions? She doesn't wanna say the wrong thing and have her friend feel worse.... any suggestions will help.

Uhm it's called "I'm sorry? Is there anything I can do to help?"

She's already said that.... she told her when vent to her and talk to her whenever she needs too but doesn't know what to say when she messaged her telling her "this is too much I can't this I can't go back to the barn" like she wants to say be strong but she's lost a horse before too and knows how hard it is to be strong...

I understand what corner she is at the only thing i can say is to help her emotionally. Don't keep asking her to talk about it but let her come out with it by herself. It will take her awhile to come out with her feelings. I suppose she might keep them suppressed but i may be wrong.

Thanks. According to my Friend, it was very sudden and tragic. He shattered his fetlock and had to be put down... what makes it worse is that he was only six, and the girl who is upset, she didn't even officially own him... she was leasing him, trying to save up money to buy him... she had just got the money, and was gonna buy him yesterday..... but instead of being able to purchase, she found him in the paddock and had to call the barn owner and the vet. :(

Sorry to hear. Didn't you say he broke his leg not his fetlock? Do you know a fetlock is?

You said leg in the post, and now you're saying fetlock. . .

I'm not... I don't even go to the barn, I don't even own a horse.. my friend does though... she's my neighbor. We talk a lot...

Maybe she just needs time. Plain and simple.

Sometimes trying to say something just makes it worse.

You were NEF. You apparently had a motorbike accident or something and had like, 3 horses, tho some were being leased off. Awkward.

The fetlock is part of the leg...

You know, whether this is true or not...If you can't figure out what to say yourself, it obviously isn't coming from the heart. In other words, it's kinda like a lie and isn't helping anyone.

Changing a username doesn't make you a different person, dear.
