Wow. I am amazed. I counted 15 people who volunteered to donate money for gas. That's got to be enough to at least buy a tank of gas or two, right? I'm telling you guys, your generosity is absolutely astounding.
That being said, you should all have a PM from me with the information on it by now. If you didn't get one just let me know!
Iseul- I've questioned if I'm doing the right thing SO many times throughout the past 13 weeks (it seems like its been so much longer than that!), especially back when we werent even sure if she was going to pull through. She was looking so lethargic near the end of her illness, and I really wasn't sure if I was doing it all for myself or for her anymore. I questioned my motive and her endurance even more last week, when I saw her ear. Now though, I know that there was a reason for all of this. Was it a LOT of money, time, and effort that we've spent on Kenzie? Absolutely. Could it have been used to invest in a horse with less risk, or to rehab a couple of other animals? Probably so. But does it really matter in the end, if we can get Kenzie sound and healthy, with a loving family to call her own? I really don't think so. I know that a lot of people dissagree with me for keeping her alive when all she's doing is costing us money, but she's just SUCH an amazing little filly, and throughout all of this, I haven't seen a single thing that REALLY told me that she was done and just didn't care anymore. Every morning she eats her breakfast with gusto, every evening she does the same thing. Maybe she's a little sore with me for letting her get hurt when she trusted me fornow, and she's not doing silly things like trying to help me muck her stall or running up to me for a 'hug', but I know that that filly will resurface again soon, for Fayde. She's just had a lot to process, poor thing.
She does seem so much older than she is though...not physically, but mentally. I don't think she was born an 'old soul' but experience has shaped her into one for sure. I just hope that she discovers that she CAN be a yearling and have fun before its too late and she's grown up.
