Possums are the only animal that I will aim at while driving.

I'm so sorry to hear this.. A lady I used to board with in Kentucky (who I no longer associate with for undisclosed reasons) had to put a horse down because of EPM. :/

What a hard thing to go through, and what a shock, first to have this happen, to be so sudden, and finally to have so little support from your vet. You should not have had to go through all of that, and neither should Charlie.

Charlie was a lucky horse to have you by his side, trying your hardest to help him and making the terrible choices we who love horses have to make. Every horse should be so fortunate.

I'm so sorry... Take care of yourself, and give yourself a warm hug from me and Ahab. Probably a hot chocolate, a good book, and a warm bed wouldn't hurt either....

Thank you all again!

We used to see opossums in the barn every now and then. A coon here and there. At one time we even had a small family of skunks (thankfully they moved on quick!). But as soon as we noticed any of these critters my husband would go out and "dispose" of them. We havent seen a raccoon or oppossom in atleast a year and a half. We have even had a live trap set up in the barn for about the last eight months (it was originally set to catch a cat). I will definitely be doing some barn cleaning.
I used to be to soft hearted to run these animals over on the highway or be around when they were taken care of on our property., considering everything we went through with Charlie, I will have no problems going out to the barn with my .22 and pulling the trigger. I will most likely do some off roading to hit an opossum with the truck now.

-Opossums beware..I'll be the death of you all-
