Indie passed away. I am completely heartbroken and I cannot believe it, I'm in shock.

She seemed to be doing okay.. I was wiping the blood from her nose for a couple hours. She had a small bowel movement. She started shivering.. I went to get a blanket.. but just laid it in the corner because she wouldn't budge. I feel like it was meant to happen, because when she reared up and fell over.. her head landed on the blanket. I screamed as Laura ran in and handled it. She got Indie laying down.

Indie had a few spasms. I thought my mom told me to run and get Dale.. so I started running down the road. I was more scared than words could describe.

My mom came and got me and I kept rubbing Indie's face. I thought she would pull through it. She would kick out and go stiff. Just like Hickstead did, that's when I realized that she wasn't going to be okay. My instructor and her dad rubbed my back as I cried and rubbed Indie's face.

When the vet arrived (he had been called as soon as she had fell over, although he was supposed to come before too long anyways).. he pronounced her dead. I sat there for half an hour, just petting her. It was the hardest thing I've had to do was walk away. My mom took a picture of my bloody hand on her shoulder. I told Indie that I loved her so much and that she can crib all she wants up in heaven.

Some day, we'll meet again but until that day, I'm going to miss her dearly. I feel like I'm going to wake up tomorrow and she'll be eager to see me at the barn.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

Jore, I am so sorry for your loss..
I'm sure that Indie knows exactly how much you loved her and how hard you tried. I' sure she really appreciates that.

Thank you so much, it means a lot. I am just in such disbelief.

The vet said there wasn't anything we could've done, he felt like it was caused by something she's had for awhile. My instructor said that I was Indie's shining star and gave her the best last three months possible.. she said we were just meant to be. I think we really were.

Oh my I am so sorry. You have me crying too. You two had been through so much since you got her and you seemed like such a good fit for eachother.

This is just terrible news I really don't even know what to say. Did the vet have any idea what happened? It wasn't related to her leg injury was it?

No, it wasn't related. He talked about a fungal growth that he's seen grow on the vessels.. apparently it causes the nose bleeds. He had talked to Dr. Murch who said perhaps the colic made her roll around and she hit her poll on something. I can't even describe how scared I was when she fell over. She had been sweaty from trying to stay up. She ended up ripping some of the IV out too. This just isn't fair.

He had said we could do an autopsy, but in the end, it won't bring her back.

That's awful. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. It's just terrible :(

I don't even know what more to say.

I'm gonna go give my horses hugs in the morning for you.

Oh my Jore.......oh....

I've read your blog and followed sucks.

I'm sorry little gal.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
