Sorry for the loss.

Do not be so hard on yourself. There is no way to know that tonight's roll/funny look/laziness is anything other than normal.

((hugs)) I'm sorry. Please don't beat yourself up over it. You guys were a great team, if there was anything you could've done, you would have.

Thanks everyone...I'm starting to feel better. I just talked to my trainer and he said there wasn't anything anyone can do. Even if she was on the operating table right when she showed symptoms it wouldn't have mattered. She did have a good last year of her life, and I'm really glad I got to meet her..she sure did teach me a lot.

Such a sad day. She was certainly a gorgeous lady. Even if you'd caught it, you might not have been able to do anyhthing. That's pretty fast to go from none or almost no symtoms to put down in about 8 hours. Must have been one of the more serious forms of colick.
Anyway, I really feel for you and the loss of your beloved mare.

I'm so sorry, she was beautiful.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
