Saying Goodbye to our Beloved Horse

It can be heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye to our beloved horses. What can we do and where can we turn?

Some people find ways to honour their horse's memory through horse hair jewelry, framed pictures, etc., but it is not always enough. As we learn of the heartbreaking story of Stephanie Lees, who was devastated by the loss of her beloved horse Jake and ended her life only a day after putting him down. For the full story, click on the link at the bottom of this post. 

Thankfully, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon now has a social worker on staff, who can assist in a variety of ways, including grief counseling. Erin Wasson has horses and understands the difficulty in losing a beloved companion. She is available to accompany Field Service clinicians on farm calls (if requested by the owner). 

If you have questions or would like to get to know Erin better, you may call her directly at (306) 966-2852, or if you would like more information, please visit the WCVM website at www.usask.ca/vmc (services).

Thank you to Dr. Kate Robinson for this valuable information! Our thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of Stephanie!
