Awww Dee, so sorry to hear that. Hope he makes a speedy & full recovery!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Dee, I really hope the little guy pulls through. How horrible for you. :( I worked at an Arabian ranch that had a mare that couldn't eat alfalfa or clover. She would get extremely sick and have a photosynthesis reaction which burned the white on her face and legs. Anyway, she pulled through so here is hoping your guy does also.

Sadly, our little guy didn't pull through this time. We had our new vet out to look at him because he went down last Thursday and couldn't get back up. He was happy as a clam, would eat an drink like nothing was wrong, but he couldn't get up. Vet came out that day and tried to help us lift him to his feet, but he just couldn't get his front and back legs to work together.

Vet noticed odd muscle tremors in the little guy...didn't hold out any hope of meaningful recovery since he had been down for several hours. Body was sent to OSU Veterinary school. Test results indicate that he had HYPP - N/H. Must have come down from his dam - she died of the same symptoms. There is no Impressive anywhere on his sire's side. Dam was grade, so we don't know what was in her lineage.

I am so sorry to hear the news of your little guy. We lost two this year, and it was so hard. One was my daughters 4H prospect, a yearling. She somehow got in with the neighbors horses, panicked when our horses took off running, and tried to jump the fence. She hit her head off the ground and had hemorrhaging. The other was a horse we leased from a friend. The mare was thin when we brought her home and we thought we could get some weight on her but she never picked up. Blood tests confirmed liver and kidney failure. Kathy (her owner) said that she had houndstongue in the paddock and had noticed it was chewed down. It was devastating to Briana. It's the horrible part about having these wonderful animals, especially when it's a tragic ending. I am really really sorry for your loss.

Yeah, our little guy had liver problems, too - on top of the HYPP. So did his dam. Sometimes it's hard having horses. I can lose a dog (lost my little Lhasa Apso mix recently - he was really old and and found a hole in the fence. Wandered down to the pond - we were amazed that he could walk that far, but I guess he tried to get a drink of water and got tangled up in the mud and pond weed. Son in law found his little body the next day) and be fine in a few days. It takes me months to get past losing a horse.

This is just like my mare's hock, she tried to jump a fence....it has been 6 weeks, it was healing nicely and then 2 days ago she split it open again, there was swelling and it split open, what exactly was your treatment? Wrapping? Turnout or stall rest, and for how long?
