Indiana Jones "Indi" for short was one of the sweetest horses I have ever had the pleasure of being around. He was my mare's baby when we bought them together. I had the privilege to get to see him grow up, his first halter and leadrope, his first saddle and briddle (fun stuff), and just being around his crazy self. I couldn't wait until it was time to start riding him..he was going to be my jumper that I could be fearless on..i had all the plans ready... well he was a cribber but idk if that had anything to do with it but he ended up collicing (spelling?) and my sis and I spent over 24 hours with him overnight and the vet coming out 3 times in two days and trying different things saying he would get better but the last time the vet came he told us he wasn't going to make it so I spent the rest of the day with my little baby trying to make him feel better because all he wanted to do was lay down...i felt horrible b/c I didn't know what to do for him and I didn't understand and still don't what exactly was wrong and why the vet went from him being ok to him not making it through the night...but i'm still appreciative that I got to spend his last bit of time with him and his mom... I still have her and I know it's crazy but I think she was crying with me that night... I hope to breed her in the future so I can have another little baby but there won't be one to replace him and his spunk.. RIP Indi.. We love and miss you!
P.s. Has anyone else ever lost a horse from colic?
