Please pray for Indie.*update* Poor baby didn't make it. sad , sad day.
I was supposed to have a lesson tonight.. on my way there, my mom pulled the car over and was crying. She said Laura texted her this afternoon.. a car was driving by the pasture and noticed a horse was laying down. I bursted out crying, knowing it was Indie but thinking the worst.

Indie's nose was bleeding when Laura got out there so a vet was called. She's been on an IV since he got there.. he hasn't left since. Her nose hasn't stopped bleeding and he says there is no point in taking her to Dr. Murch because there is too much blood for a scope. We are going to once, and if, her nose clots. He has tried everything he can to stop it, with no avail.

He said something about a fungus growing on a group of vessels that could be a cause but it'd need a scope. If that was the case, the prognosis is not good. As of right now, it's hour by hour. He said she has been a star patient.

When I arrived, my instructor was tending to her nose and the vet was monitoring the IVs. Indie had zero enthusiasm and just looked miserable. I am staying at the barn tonight with Laura and we'll be taking care of her.

My emotions are a mixture of despair and shock. Please keep Indie in your prayers tonight. I wished on a star and prayed. She can't be taken away from me.. not yet. :'(

Wow Jore! My heart is with you, stay strong we may not physically be with you but we're all here praying. Don't worry about keeping us too updated Indie needs you now more than we do. Really praying for you tonight and Indie alike, take care and keep your head up.

Thank you.. we're heading back up once we give Cali some time to get some energy burnt off since she was crated all day. It was the longest five minutes of my life once my mom told me. I'm probably going to sleep in the barn in my sleeping bag, if I do sleep. Laura offered to let us sleep in her house if need be.

How scary. I will say a prayer for Indie for sure. I hope for the best possible outcome.

I will be sending good healing vibes. It sounds like you have good people and good vets already. Sometimes a lot of blood can look really awful but not be as deadly as you think. hope this is such a case.

I emailed Indie's previous owner to let her know what happened, because I know she loved Indie as much as I have come to love her.

The time is going by so slowly.. I'm hoping my mom hurries up so we can get going. She was almost as upset as me. I think my instructor was upset for me aswell, she didn't say a word except she said she'd take good care of her while I went home to grab stuff. The vet was great so I know she is in good hands.

Healing vibes and prayers from my part, too.

Thanks everyone, I'm hoping you're right, tinyliny. The vet just said that if it's what he suspects, the prognosis is slim. Hopefully the bleeding will stop so that we can trailer her to Dr. Murch for a scope. She's also impacted and the vet said she was colicky.

Jore, I am very sorry to hear about Indie.
You are both in my thoughts and prayers! I hope you get the answers are looking for and that Indie makes a full recovery.

Jore 11-21-2012 06:58 PM

Thank you, it means a lot. We're heading to the barn, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with good news.
