    Default Jingles; Prayers; Colicing mare: SHE IS HOME!!! (update in 1st post)

    SHE IS HOME!! She came home last night! Vet says as long as she stays on her special diet and has consistantsy she is going to be fine. She was so happy in her new stall beside her daughter and next to her new stable buddys. Her owner hasn't stopped grinning and I wanted to just cry with joy seeing how happy my friend and her children were. Oh, and the good lord was looking out for my friend, JUST as she was parking her trailer to un-load the mare her truck DIED!!

    Happy endings all around. Tnx for all the Jingles and prayers!!




    Please send jingles and prayers our way. My friend's (who is also my husband's comanding officer's wife) old mare (24) is colicing. She is another that is boarded at the ranch from my not so good post. This colic is from obvious bad management of feed and water. I will explain how we know this later. She has been to two vets today and is now being hand walked in base housing. We are to the "hurry up and wait" phase. I am on my way there now to share the duty and the stress of it.

    This poor woman is having a rough time of it; not only is her husband deployed but her mother just had cancer surgery last week and her youngest son has developed health problems. I fear for how she will hold up if her mare doesn't pull through.

    I will update you all with hopefully good news.

    I am home till 6 am when we haul her back to the vet. Still no poop, lots and lots of banamine, but at least not trying to go down and gums are still pink.

    I am hoping for an overnight miricle so friend doesn't have to make the decision. However if she needs to she has accepted my offer to have it done at my place where it is private with no prying eye.

    More news tomorrow. Sigh.

    Jingles. People with deployed loved ones do not need colic. Best wishes for a good outcome.
