He colicked a few days ago, and today his gut ruptured. He is currently in shock, dehydrated, massive internal bleeding. He stands 2 feet from me, bundled up in a blanket, as we wait for the vet.
He was bought for my horse Mason 2 years ago. Mason died a year ago this summer. Gibson was there by his side to the end. Since Mason died, Gibson started dropping weight, lost his sparkle and his everything.
Now he stands before me, dying and there's nothing I can do. I always felt so safe on him and I can do nothing but end his pain now.
I guess I just need some support. Never take a horse for granted. This is a horse that my bf's 10 year old daughter could trust her life with. He's done so much for me.
