R.I.P. Scribbles :(

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

Aw, I'm so sorry, Scribbles sounds like he was a very nice little pony and he looks adorable.

He was the cutest thing. For the last year he was kept in the back of the barn in the last stall. Each time I'd enter I'd yell "Scribblies!!" and he'd whinny back to me.
I used to clean his disgusting stall since the BO never took time to do so....I used to mix up his food and let it soak for him to eat. I'd spend at least an hour brushing off the excess hair that wouldn't drop in the summer (I think he had Cushings)

But anyways, he sure was my favoritest pony around :(

That is very sad... cute little guy...

My vet puts a tube down Pistols nose and into his stomache when he colics. It depends on what the vet was trying to do... I'm not sure why the nose bleed though... are you sure the pony didnt colic and go toxic?

Very sad.

Very sad news. We are putting a mare down tomorrow. A really sweet mare, a 3 year old. Always a big loss when a horse with such a big heart moves on.

It sounds like he had quite a good life :)

Awww, so sorry to hear about Scribbles. **Hugs** He sounds like he was a great horse. Lots of wonderful memories.

Poor little guy! He was so adorable! I hope he's in a better place now.
So sorry to hear this
It impacts me a lot because I own a Shetland pony cross, and she is my baby. If anything like this ever happened to her, I don't even know what I'd do, other then cry for days on end.

Not trying to take away from the point of this thread (poor little Scribbles) but this is Snapple
