Hang in there girl! Huge hugs, hope all goes well and it's something VERY minor.
Checking her for ulcers, bad bacteria or lack of good in her intestines, teeth? Do you feed her any supportive pro-biotics? When my old gelding, whom was given to me when he was 7 after foundering AND a colic, started going down hill I loaded him up with everything I could get my hands on. His intestines were junk, at 22 he started loosing all his teeth and I had to feed him warm mash and bucket loads of supplements. Hopefully it's just a dietary issue!
I won't say that buying a horse doomed to the yards isn't a rescue. You ARE saving their life and giving them a chance.
Especially a 2,000 pound untouched stallion, kudos girl!
I haven't taken in any more severely neglected horses. It broke my heart. I did take in a few untouched/dangerous/feral unwanted horses, all between the ages of 2-5. Some I helped, two were expensive breeder culls that I wish I had NEVER laid eyes on! I pray for all the severely injured/neglected horses out there and pray for strength and resources to support them. Takes a special kind of person to face such a travesty and drag them back to health, and in the worst cases ease their transition to Heaven. I'm not willing to do it again but I'm sure there will be a day another horse will need me and I'll step up to the plate. How could one not? You guys are fantastic for stepping up to the plate and into the unknown!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
