I think it's time.. ),:
Well, some of you might remember that last month (or so) I posted something about my gelding, Rhedd. Well, I think it might be time for him to pass on to a less painful life. Today I noticed that he had a long, flat, and fairly wide enlargement on his stomach. I told my mom when she got home and she said that it might be a hernia. I’ve noticed this past week he has lost the life in his eyes. He is having an even harder time then before moving around, too. Today he looked like he was in a lot of pain. He hasn't been drinking much water and we would only eat his grain this evening, and even with that he wasn’t all excited like normal. He was giving me lots of hugs these past few days, but not his normal hugs, they were different. It makes me so sad to think that I would be losing him; he is the love of my life. Maybe it's just Heidi wanting her "boy friend" back (lost her this week last week too). I know I’m not imagining things either; I’m not someone who does that when she is upset.
If anyone has any ideas oh what the enlargement on his tummy might be, please let me know. We will be talking it over for the next few days, but we are pretty sure we will be putting him down.
I knew this day would be coming soon, but I didn't think it would be this soon. I’m going to miss my boy so much, him always happy to see me and loving me no matter what.
Anyways, I’m sobbing, so I’m going to stop typing now. Please, no snooty or rude comments, I can't handle that right now.
Love you Rhedd-boy. "/
