So sorry that happened. It is good to know the cause though & know it wasn't anyone's fault, but a problem that no one could have forseen. The love shines through in your pictures & she looks happy. RIP Thelma.

thank you for shareing your pictures of thelmer.
some times things are beyond our controle but we dont know whats happening to our loved ones on the inside its the worst fear of us all, dont question your horse management as you did an awesome job looking after thelmer in the good times and the bad times that she was around.
our thoughts are with you and thelmer at this sad time,michael tricky and quincey.

My condolences. Our gelding passed just last month of the exact same thing, but he had tumors in his stomach as well. His GI tract was literally decomposing. There were no signs of illness before, just a string of mild case colics just like with Thelma. He had been in perfect health but there was nothing that could save him.

Rest easy knowing that her new owners did what was right by Thelma, even though it hurts. She will no longer suffer.

It makes me wonder though...if theres something in the feeds or maybe fertilizers that might be causing...I've heard of multiple stories just like this in the past few months.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
