Aw, I'm super sorry... that's really the last thing you needed right now.
At least you know the foal is safe, and is still there... and won't be going anywhere in the meantime.

If there is any bright lining to this dark cloud, at least you have even more time to prepare a watertight argument.

Keep strong!

Hey hey now.. the best things in life aren't easy. They're worth fighting tooth and nail for.

You'll get through this.. maybe with your boy, maybe without. But it's how much you're willing to put into it all that really counts.

You've got the entire horse forum behind ya! Plus I'm guessing your family and friends as well!

No need to get discouraged :)

I asked about an emergency hearing, but it seems that's just another brick wall. All i can do at this point is prepare ALL of my evidence accordingly and wait until the 12th. He will be served again tonight with the citation, petition, and TRO that has been updated with the new court date. I believe the judge who will hear this case on the 12th is the BEST judge for this case. Plus I've already had a one on one conversation with him about it when he signed the original TRO and Petition. Now I guess all I can do is pray these next 2 weeks go by fast. The only peace of mind I have are the animal control photos that show he is in decent condition and is being fed by the BO. I am also going to the police station this week to file my formal complaint against the police officer from last week for several reasons.

Thank you everyone for your uplifting words and hope. I appreaciate all of the thought and prayers ya'll are giving for my horses and for me. I will let everyone know as soon as I know anything new.

I have decided at this point to go ahead and let nature take its course as far as my mares milk production goes. Since it looks like it will be at least 2 weeks before my colt comes home, there isn't much of a reason to keep torturing her. That being said, any suggestions on easing the process for her???

Gosh, what a huge disappointment.

I heard a saying once and I try to embrace it, whenever I go through a bad time, with my horses, like you are having.

Better in the barn, than in the house.

I can't even imagine what people go through with custody battles with their children.

Two weeks will fly by.

As has been already said the time will go by quickly (yeah right). You have seen pics of your baby, he may be loosing a little weight, but is Ok otherwise, and you know where he is. Hang in there, use the time to assemble all the facts, and put everything in order. Maybe you can contact animal control to do a check up visit on your behalf. Keep strong it is going to work out in the end.

I can't imagine having to wait until July 12th for this if it were my animals...I think I would already be a basket case at this point.

I'm SO sorry you have to go through this. You'll definitely be in my thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately I'm leaving for Ohio on July 12 so I won't be able to see what happens until later. But a good luck!

Bird - as far as helping your mare dry up... just keep her outside and moving nature will take it's course. Don't milk her at all, but do keep an eye out to make sure her bag doesn't get extremely swollen and or very hot. I hope for both of you she dries up without problem.
