    This whole thing is just sickening. Sounds like they were trying to keep him going because they could still breed him and get some money out of him. Really sad. I hope that horse is gone now.

    If he hasn't been vaccinated for WNV, I'd get him tested for it as well. Could be a reaction to one of the vaccines, or even if he got several at the same time.

    I have seen quite a few people who let their horses go entirely too long before having them put down. The horses were boarded and the owners didn't come out that often - maybe it was too hard to see...
