I am so upset, I live in Wyoming, my daughter lives in Nevada and she is on the phone to me. Seems the neighbors dogs, which have gotten out numerous times and chased her horses have attacked her barrel horse. The vet is on the way out, but since nobody saw the attack, although the neighbor kids heard it, sounds as if the sheriff can't do anything.
I think the mare will have to be put down, she is literally shredded and it sounds as if her back fetlock/leg might be broken. I am so upset for her, nobody home to help her since hubby works at night 40 miles away. I am six hours away so can't help.
This mare has only one eye, I am thinking the dogs caught her by surprise and got her down and she could not get up.
My daughter was gone this afternoon, and only just got home to find her horse. Please say prayers that she will not have to be put down.
