Hi Friends,

It is with a heavy heart and tear filled eyes that I make my final post of Tuck and I's journey together. For those who have not followed my previous posts, Tucker began showing nuerologic signs in late August and was labeled a grade 2 'wobbler'. I turned him out for the last 3 months hoping for a change.

I just got home last night from UC Davis with an empty trailer and my boy's halter. He was now labeled a grade 3 wobbler. A myleogram confirmed this diagnosis and revealed multiple spinal compressions throughout his neck. The placement of them made them inoperable and there was no other choice but to let him go.

Tucker, I love you to pieces and will miss your kisses every day. You were an amazing friend and source of encouragement over the past four years. We shared many adventures along the way and you were loved by many. Today, we laid you down and said our good byes, I love you forever. Platinum Hotrodder- (2008-2013).

Wow so sorry. I read your other threads and noticed instantly what a strong bond you had and also how you did everything feasibly possible to diagnose and "fix" him. Honestly, you had a lot going for you with that, and he almost seemed better at times..but sometimes health issues simply cannot be overcome. You did what you needed to for your horse. Treasure the moments you had with him. I'm so so sorry for your loss. It was obvious how much the two of you cared for each other.

I am seriously crying as I write this.. sending thoughts your way.
