    Well I have an update! Its not good but it could be worse.

    Last night Nilla had what we thought was a mild case of colic. She was laying down and rolling a lot. She just looked like she wasnt feeling great. We got her up and led her around for almost an hour and a half, then she pooped and had good gut sounds she started drinking and eating. So we let her back out in her little pen.

    This morning I got up and went over to check on her just to be sure she was still feeling ok. Well I couldnt find her. She wasnt in her pen. I looked around and we found her in another pen with a bunch of bullies. I took her inside and walked her around a bit. It didnt take long before I thought she was sick again and didnt have hardly any gut sound. I called the vet but they couldnt get out for another hour but they wanted me to keep her moving. That was way easier said than done she layed down about 10 times and I would have to fight with her to get her back up and moving again. Once the vet finaly got there she gave her some pain meds and took some blood tests.

    The blood tests came back that she has a severe infection her white blood cell count was 60,000. The vet said that could be a huge reason why she is so under weight. So she is now on two antibiotics. Hopfully she pulls through and the meds work but the vet also said there is a small chance that they wont help.

    Nilla is feeling so much better today. She has a check up on Wendsday but all looks good. In a way im glad this all happened because now we know why she was thin and everything can be corrected. She will be fat and happy in no time.

    Hi I just wanted to share a couple recent pictures. She is doing so great and is gaining weight and energy. Her color has darkened which I find odd because usually palominos color gets dull in the winter. Maybe she's going to be one very gold palomino. The vet was pleasantly suprised with her improvement they said that horses with infections as bad as hers was don't usually walk away so I am so greatful she is one stong little baby.

    She is gorgeous.

    Palominos change with seasons and diet. Ill bet since she is on a proper diet and feeling healthy again, her coat is showing the results already.

    Good job! She's a very pretty girl. Did you decide on a name? (Sorry if I missed it)

    Glad to hear she is doing better. Keep up the good work.Doctoring a sick horse is always a challenge-isn't it nice when the vet gives a pat on the back?
