Just another update for you guys:

The little guy is still hanging on as of about an hour ago, but my uncle says that it's not looking good for him


But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

good news everybody :)

I got to see the little guy this weekend and he seems to be making a rather unexpected recovery! He's getting his energy back and we've been fairly successful with bottle feeding him. My uncle says that his vitals are all returning to normal and that he should be fine, but he is going to monitor him closely since a head injury was what (most likely) started all of this!

As for the (human) boyfriend...not such a great outlook. But hey, horses are all I really need

Thank you everybody for the support! I'll keep y'all updated!

Oh, thank goodness! I was so afraid No News Would Be Bad News.
Will he be able to go back to his new mom and filly in a few days if all goes well?

Thank you for letting us know. Sorry about the boyfriend.

My uncle thinks so. Like I said, both he and my parents are going to watch him closely, but he should be back to normal by the end of the week.

And thank you! Not sure how I stayed with him for the time I did: he absolutely HATED horses.

Agreed! I'm so relieved!

And yes, absolutely :) According to him, horse riding is "where girls wear tight pants and boots and the horse does all of the work". *Eye roll*
