    Wow, I wish the road were easier for her. How is her appetite? Does the vet think she may pull through?

    I just checked your blog and I am so disheartened to see the news. I really thought last week she was going to pull through. You have tried so hard and my heart goes out to you. I am so angry that there could be people in this world that could let this have happened to a horse.

    I am so sorry that you have come to that cross road...What a beautiful name, too...wish it could have turned out better for her.

    I just read your blog, and I am so sorry for you and her. Thank you for doing all that you could for her.

    I don't know how you are feeling, but I can assume based on how I would feel - so please don't lose hope, if you put that much love and effort into another horse you could end up with a much better result. I am a foster parent to teenage boys and so I understand the heart ache that comes along with the joys.

    You did completely right by this horse, and I am sure she died knowing that you were helping her and that she was loved. Thank you for what you do!

    We put her down this evening at 7 as planned. I hate it happened.

    I will say, it was very peaceful. We gave her a high dose of Bute to allow her to walk out a bit into the pasture, and we gave her treats the whole way, something I'd not given her before due to her starvation and hooves, and she grazed some, and it was really peaceful and she had enough Bute, double more than I'd give usually, that she seemed to feel okay on the walk - though it was a pitiful walk.

    I hope I've learned something from her case, and I hope I've shared her story online enough that it moves some people to action to try to help and maybe her photos will educate some farriers.
