Shannen Doherty is suffering after a major loss happened. The BH 90210 star has revealed that her beloved horse, Picasso, passed away on Monday — minutes before she could make it to his side.

The former Charmed star opened up about the devastating news on Instagram and included a few pictures of Picasso, along with a heartfelt message about what happened to him and how she wasn’t able to make it to his side in time.

“Picasso. I guess you’re not supposed to have favorites but he was in fact my favorite. I fell in love with him out at a barn where my other horses were. He was for sale but serious professional riders were looking at him to be their Grand Prix horse,” she wrote.

“When they were done testing him, I would give him a bath, walk him, feed him carrots and apples and talk to him. We were bonded. I was told to not buy him. He was too strong, hard to handle, needed a male rider etc. I bought him anyway cause I didn’t like how the people who were looking to buy him treated him. He became mine and I became his.”

Doherty went on to share even more. “He was gentle with me. Took me over jumps perfectly. I trusted him completely and he trusted me. I was in love. That love has never wavered. I turned him out to pasture many years ago. I wanted him to be a horse. To run free. To hang out with other horses. To just be a horse. I saw him often.”

Unfortunately, Picasso suffered a ruptured intestine and there was nothing the veterinarians could do to save him. “He died 20 minutes before I could even get to him. My heart is shattered. #picasso August 12-2019,” she wrote.

Doherty is very passionate about her horses and uses her time with them to recharge and unwind. She shared a photo with one of her horses back in April, writing, “Off the grid. Horses. Cattle. My soul is starting to feel rejuvenated again. Back when I’m back.” Entertainment Hub sends heartfelt condolences to Doherty on this tremendous loss.
