    RIP Indiana Jones

    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?

    Yes, I lost my very first horse ever from colic. I had her for three weeks, she came to me way malnourished, and was not in a good situation. I became very attached to her in the short time I had her and it was one of the toughest things I have ever had to deal with. I am just happy that her short time with me was wonderful and that she had food and shelter and she knew love. I know it is hard, trust me, I have been there. He was in your life for a reason, even if it was for a short time. I have asked myself over and over what did we do to cause it, and there was nothing we did different. I beat myself up saying that somehow, it was my fault, but it could have been anything. Keep your chin up and remember, he is looking down at you and will always be with you.

    This was my baby. You can see what bad shape she was in. RIP sweet baby.

    Aww! Thank you soo much! I have never really talked to anyone about it bc most of the horse people I know haven't lost a horse and non-horse people sometimes just don't get it... but your baby was gorgeous! Maybe they'll be waiting for us at the pearly gates.. :)

    Aww R.I.P both horses. So sad.... I;m sorry for both of your losses...

    Thank you

    That is so sad. My sympathies to you Gypsy Girl. I have learned over time that when someone comes into you life for a short time it is usually to teach you something.

    You will receive another, in time, who will make your dreams come true.

    RIP Indi, rest easy young man.

    And - not crazy, his mum was certainly grieving with you .

    Awh, im so sorry to hear about your loss. . .
    My horse is a bad cribber, I've spent HUNDREDS of dollars on medicines, different suppliments, EVERYTHING you could imagine because I don't want to lose him. And he's coliced once before. At his first home before he was at the rescue I adopted him from.

    He's come from such a hard life, being abused, neglected, starved.
    I don't want him to colic because of cribbing again. . . .
    Im so sorry to hear about your horse.

    You have dreams just like I do with my thoroughbred. I want me and him to go far. Jumpers. Everything.

    He looked like a beautiful boy. A very soft, gentle eye on him.
    Lifes too short. Every moment teaches you something.
    RIP Indi.
