Melissa Miller's Intermediate horse, High Finance (JC What a Rebel) is suffering from lamintis following Potomac Horse Fever. He's not doing the best and could use some of the helpful COTH Jingles.
I've know Finny since before his last race & worked the sale to Melissa--he's not the easiest horse in the world but she has done a super job of developing him and believing in him--this is devastating for her.

Sending HUGE jingles for Finny!

Jingles for a quick recovery.

Jingles! Hope it goes well. Thoroughbreds are tough. :)

Laminitis is quite scary. Hoping for a quick turnaround.

Jingles for all associated with a wonderful horse.

I know Melissa from Area 8 YR's - she's really a class act, I felt lucky to have met her. So sorry to hear about this - thinking of her and Finny :/

Jingles LAZ. The vaccine can only do so much with all the strains of Potomac. Wishing him a full recovery...I've seen an older horse battle back so get well Finny!!

I met Melissa when she rode in the Becky Holder clinic in January. She very politely told me the difference between she and Missy Miller, as I had called her Missy. She is a class act.
Jingling for her amazing horse. I pray that he will have a full recovery.
Is PHF in your area or did he contract it at an event?

Sending more jingles....hoping for a full and quick recovery!!!

I've known Melissa and Finn for years. Wild jingles in hopes of a full recovery. :(

Oh, poor boy, I hope he recovers speedily and well.
Vet is coming today to scan the pony--a good reminder to do a PHF booster . . .

Jingles for a complete and easy recovery
Aug. 2, 2011, 09:52 AM
So sorry to hear this, and wishing for a complete recovery. What a tough time this must be for Melissa-- hugs to her.

Jingles for a speedy recovery!!
Aug. 2, 2011, 10:23 AM
Jingles, jingles, jingles!!
Hugs to both horse and rider.

I've known Melissa since she was a kid on a pony and she has come so far as a rider and a horsewoman. Finn is obviously not the easiest ride and she's done such a great job with him. Jingles for both of them - hoping that things turn around for Finny and he makes a good recovery.

May jingles and hopes that the stinking flounder will leave quickly. (And if you don't know where that term came from, check out Willem in the Favorites forum.)
Aug. 2, 2011, 12:34 PM
Jingles for Finn and I hope he makes a good recovery. Potomac is a tough one to deal with and unfortunately the vaccine does not give 100% protection from contracting it.
Aug. 2, 2011, 12:38 PM
Prayers and jingles.
Aug. 2, 2011, 12:40 PM
Jingling like crazy from Ontario!!!!
Aug. 2, 2011, 12:42 PM
More jingles from NC!!!!

Big jingles for Finn and Melissa! I have a soft spot for this horse b/c my buddy (Hollywood on here) bought him off the track and was the one who initially restarted him with LAZ's help. I am praying that the big guy pulls through!
Aug. 2, 2011, 07:49 PM
Heard from Melissa, he's doing better
Today--got up on his feet and ate an apple from her.
Keep those jingles coming!

Aw, poor Finny. Double jingles.
Aug. 3, 2011, 12:06 AM
So sorry to hear this! Jingles for a speed recovery!

www.hoofrehab.com This guy has had more positive outcomes in fixing even really bad laminitis than anyone I know.

Jingles for a speedy recovery!

Today's update is that he is much brighter-eyed and doing better--has rubber shoes & casts of some sort on,but is on his feet, interested, and moving. The vets are pleased with where he is--radiographs look good & blood flow is improved. He's a long way from out of the woods, but the clearing is in sight.
Keep those jingles coming--they are really helping!
