Please send good thoughts to a former horse of mine!

So, my previous horse Murphy coliced last night. Murphy is a beautiful 15.3 hh bright bay mare with a cute thin blaze. Great dressage horse and hunter extraordinaire. I sold her to one of my friends 3 years ago as she does not like eventing. My friend is in love with her.

Last night, she started showing signs of colic so they immediately called the vet. The vet gave her a dose of Banamine and called it good. After that, Murphy was up and looked interested and alert. Then, she went down again. The vet decided that the colic was in her small intestine and she should be taken to the biggest vet hospital in the state, Kansas State Vet Hospital in Manhattan.

Haven't heard any updates since then but her owner is not at work so she's probably still at the vet hospital.

I am SO attached to this horse. This is probably one of my favorite horses I have ever owned in my entire life.

Please send good thoughts to Murphy! Maybe we can pull her through this.

Oh my gosh, how stressful, worrysome and emotional. :(

What is going on with the C word lately? *knocks on wood*

I am so sorry - I will pray that Murphy will make it through this whole situation! How old is Murphy? Was the prognosis sugery?

Thanks MIEventer.

I will post as soon as I have updates but as of now, I do not know her prognosis or if she requires surgery.

She was born in 1996 so... 14 years old.

Here are pics of my old girl, she's the first on the page. And yeah, that's me riding her.

For Sale

Awww, look at you in pink! LOVE IT!

She is beautiful, and I will keep sending good vibes her way and keep my fingers crossed!

This is a very hard thing go through though, I wish her owner all the strength as well.

Thank you guys for the support. Unfortunately, Murphy has worsened to the point where surgery is no longer a good option. She will be put down shortly. I will post later after I stop crying

Does anyone know of a good horsehair bracelet maker? Her current owner would like to get one made...

I am so sorry!!! (((hugs)))

A friend of mine lost her boxer not too long ago. She used this lady to have something made from her beloved pet. She highly recommends her.

Oh no! *hugs*

I am so sorry and know that I am praying for you and the current owner!
