I have three horses, Gus, Fred and Ala. Ya weird names but Ala is special here is her story...Ala was a racing horse but was no longer able to race because she was slowing down toward her older age. My mother is divorced and when she met this man named Quincy she suddenly knew she was going to marry him. After a while he did ask her to marry him and as a gift he would give her Ala. Ala has had an interesting life she raced and won worlds best barrel raceing horse and then no one was going to take after her and she sat in the pasture and ate, that was all she could do. Then she came to me, she was skinny and needed brushing, I am sorry if this bores you, anyway lately we found out that she has authuritus and it has been going down ill from there, she was turning colic about a month ago and she got over it but about a week ago she was laying around and my mom checked on her and she is colic afain and now it is worse. That is all thank you for listening!!!
