Trainer has just come back from the clinic and been in touch.
Happened yesterday, older mare started.. Colosan didn't help so vet ,are her way there. Hour later Dubai started. Vet got there quicker than ever before (did I mention Annette, the trainer, calls him her baby too?) and took one look. Said there was nothing she could do and to get him to the clinic right away.
Thank god for all that ground work because he loaded straight away and it was a quick drive. Think it is all weather related. We had 32oC on Friday and it has dropped to 11oC with a chill wind.
The clinic were honest and said they didn't think he would pull through, but if Annette didn't hear from them then it was good news.
They did some sort of minor OP, from what I could understand, but not a full colic OP. Bad phone connection so hoping to get in touch tomorrow.
He comes home Sunday. Very tired and sore, and need to feed lots of mash and take it slow over the next month.
Annette didn't sleep a wink last night, but I am glad she phoned this afternoon with news rather than leaving us both hanging. I got home and got a bag packed ready to get on the train and phone work tomorrow to explain my absence!
Thank you for all your jingles x
