    To be honest I'm not entirely sure. Things have been fairly busy on the farm and I had to get to class so I didn't really have time to ask about details.

    And just as a disclaimer for you guys, sorry if I sound snippy or rude in my responses. Boyfriend issues + Academics + A potentially dying foal = a pretty bad mood

    Don't worry about it, it's a lot of stress to go through. It really is an uphill battle. That night I didn't know if my boy was going to make it and I was in hysterics. He was on the DMSO and dex drip at the vet for 3 days before my vet told me "What I can do for him, you can do." So he came home and relied on the dex(a corticosteroid that aids in inflammation) and bute for the headache for almost 2 months afterwards. My boy is almost 100% now. Looking at him, you wouldn't be able to tell he has brain damage. His head is tilted(they believe he fractured his neck in the poll area), his left eye looks down a little, and his top lip pulls to the right, but otherwise there are no other effects from his accident. I pray your boy makes it out okay like Henny did. Where does your uncle practice, if you don't mind me asking? I may know him.

    No worries; he actually practices in Florida but frequently travels to and is licensed to practice in the New Mexico/Texas/Oklahoma area.

    Just got another update on the little guy...things aren't looking all that promising

    He's still having trouble breathing and barely has any energy. My uncle is setting up to stay with him for tonight.

    On another note, his filly friend has been pretty distressed all day.

    I don't know if this would help him at all or just stress him out but maybe you could bring his filly friend in to see him? It may give him the energy boost he needs.

    I don't have any advice other than that. I know a colt who reared up when he was little and slipped on cement. He cracked his poll on the cement and we weren't sure if he was going to make it. He is still around today, his neck is a little crooked and he has some bone spurs in his neck, but he's a functional horse.

    I hope your little guy pulls through.
