I just heard really bad new yesterday.
I was talking to a friend at the old stables (the ONLY one that was nice and calm with the horses and knew what she was doing....she also had a pretty good way with horses....Sonny wasn't afriad of her )
Anyways, I just heard from her that Scribbles the 25ish year old Shetland Pony passed away two weeks ago.
Evidently he started choking on some grass...so the BO called the vet out and the vet put a tube up his nose (um....isn't it supposed to be in his mouth and down his throat?). Well the tube caused a nose-bleed.
She isn't sure how exactly he died...but she said she was pretty darn sure he bled to death.
Poor guy! He was the sweetest pony ever. He'd come to a complete stranger to get loves and attention, he would stand right next to you when you were sitting on the ground, and he was such a character to watch. I miss him
