I'm sorry it didn't end well but I think the right decision was made.

It was indeed a blockage just not a fixable one. Lastnight when the first vet was here it was visible on the horses throat as she was tubing him. Whether it was a blockage from hay or a tumor is unknown.

What a sad end for the guy, but I think everyone did the right thing in the horse's best interest. It must have been an incredibly difficult decision for the owner to make.

I'm sorry the final decision for the horse is the worst one we have to make whenever we have animals. However in this case, it was the only correct one for the horse at his age and the possibility of it being a tumor or cancer. My thoughts are with all of you who knew this horse.
