View Full Version : Pray for Cooper

Dec. 2, 2009, 05:38 PM
I was so sorry to read Jennie Brannigan's latest blog entry. Sounds like Cooper has developed laminitis. I just wanted to let her know that I am sending all possible good vibes their way. Hope to hear better news soon.

Ah, no, what a heartbreak. :( Best wishes for both of them.

Ugh this news breaks my heart!!! I loved watching Jennie and Cooper. They are such a class act!!!!

Can horses recover from laminitis? I have heard of it before but don't have a lot of knowledge about the condition.

yes they can recover...it can also get bad enough that you have to put them down. Hopefully it will not come to that...

Awww, crap. How heartbreaking. They can just break your heart like nothing else. Jingles for sure.

Dec. 2, 2009, 08:57 PM
Oh, no, that is tough news. Jingling for his recovery... and for Jennie to hang in there.

I despise founder. Hang in there Cooper!

Dec. 2, 2009, 10:47 PM
They have had such a tough time. It's sad to hear of this latest development. Big jingles from Kansas.

Dec. 2, 2009, 11:08 PM
Oh, no. What incredibly sad news. Jingling hard here in Ohio.

Dec. 2, 2009, 11:10 PM
I'm jingling here in Michigan! Cmon Cooper! You can shake this!

Dec. 2, 2009, 11:35 PM
Prayers and jingles for Cooper. I sure hope he has the strength to beat this. I have a very tough kitty named Cooper (who is also beautiful and sweet) and I know he's saying little kitty prayers.

That is very sad news.
Hang in there Cooper!

Jingles from Maine for you Cooper! Hugs for Jen.

Dec. 3, 2009, 06:31 AM
Hang in there, Cooper. You are such a strong boy and your mom really needs you to get through this! :sadsmile:

Dec. 3, 2009, 06:44 AM
Horrible news. This poor girl has been through so much, and not just with this horse...yes, at least they are in the best possible hands with the New Bolton team.
Reminds us how lucky we are every morning just to walk to the barn and see them standing there, bearing weight on all fours....

Dec. 3, 2009, 06:54 AM
Praying for him.

Dec. 3, 2009, 07:39 AM
:cry: Oh man, poor guy. I hope he pulls through this.

Dec. 3, 2009, 10:07 AM
Oh, bugger. What a dart. Major jingles for a good recovery!

Dec. 3, 2009, 11:13 AM
Come on Cooper, your mommy needs you!

Dec. 3, 2009, 12:34 PM
Jingles and prayers from Texas.

Jenny and Cooper, Hope you can hear all these prayers coming your way. My horse foundered this summer ...followed by a serious abscess...so we've been there.
One day at a time...one day at a time.

Dec. 3, 2009, 12:47 PM
Cooper - Hang in there little buddy (Jennie, that goes for you too). Trying to keep back the tears for you both right now - not exactly the end to the season you dreamed of. Fingers and hooves crossed...

Dec. 3, 2009, 05:59 PM
Pulling for Cooper here in Missouri! Keep your chin up Jennie. I know that is easier said than done at this point in the game but know that you have lots and lots of people pulling for you and your Wonder Pony!

Dec. 3, 2009, 06:30 PM
You both will be in my thoughts and prayers. :)

makes my heart sink.

laminitis and founder are in the same family but not the same.

did she say anything about rotation?

makes my heart sink.

yes...her blog said he started to have some sinking. They have that stopped for the moment.

They had been doing all the right things before too (good supportive shoing)....and I know are doing what they can now. Just really sucks and is scary.

I hope that she knows...no matter the outcome...she did all she could for him. Horses can be such heartbreakers. Still hoping that there will be a postive outcome out of this for him and sending my well wishes.

Dec. 4, 2009, 10:30 AM
Hoping with all fingers crossed he comes out ok!

Hope Jennie knows everyone is pulling for her and Cooper - I have never met her, just read about them.

So sad to hear this

Jingles from MD~
