    Be careful with strangles. YOU can spread it very easily. If you go anywhere that there are other horses be sure you have cleaned up completely before going. Shoes too.

    I am not sure hwo she is doing right now. The vet is going down to take care of her and I will give him a call around noon to find out if he made it there yet and how she is doing and her progress. I have epilepsy so I can't drive over there by myself.

    Oh I am very aware of strangles,thank you though.
    That stuff is NASSSSTY and I really hope it's not that.

    The vet said Gidget doesn't have strangles like they thought and she doesn't need pumped with oil and she had her first meal(a handful or soaked alfalfa hay that we have been feeding her) and she was in HEAVEN!
    She also doesn'y have a temperature anymore.

    I just have to monitor her and make sure she is pooping and give her small meals and build it up.

    Thats great! An acquaintance of mine just lost her 20 year old mare this weekend to colic. Her dad runs a stable and bought food for some horses but the owners said it was too bad of quality so he fed it to their horses and it killed her. Jessica had Rose since she was in kindergarten and now she is a senior. It was tough for her, glad your mare pulled through!

    I'm curious too, did they figure out what was wrong with her? Like maybe a stomach infection or something?

    I'm glad she's on the mend though, and will continue to pull for her!

    So glad she is doing better. Still sending prayers your way.
