I've just had to make the decision to have my sisters horse Rian PTS.
Helene isnt here so it fell to me and mum.
I got back from my interview this afternoon, got changed and called the ponies in for thier tea.
Rian came in with his head nearly on the floor, he went to the back of his stable where I managed to get his rug off him as it was covered in poo. Then he collapsed at the back of his stable.
I called the vet and went back to him, he was throwing himself round the stable but couldnt get up, it seemed like his back end could not support him and he came over the top of me when I went to try and calm him. Eventualy he ended up in the corner near the haybar and he calmed. Mum arrived and stood with me stroking his neck.
Vet arrived examined him and then said there was no other option.
We decided to have him PTS
RIP Rian, May you have be pain free and go to enjoy annoying stan on the rainbow bridge!
