    Wow, this thread puts things in to perspective...

    Wow, this thread puts things in to perspective for me. I'm 49 and wondering if I should quit because I lost my heart horse.....

    Hell, I could look at it like I'm just getting started!

    There was lots of networking to give this mare a chance. I saw her ad and bought her but Brennan Equine Welfare Fund is helping with the surgery, Exceller Fund is helping as well. When she's healed...

    Thank you both so much. I shared these tips with the vet and we're implementing.

    She made it through the 3.5 hour surgery well. Dr. Michael Prichard was the surgeon - he wanted her back out on...

    Wow - super informative! Thank you so very much! Fortunately I board at the clinic, so we will be able to closely monitor.

    Your boy is so lucky to have you :).

    Thanks so much - yes, the diet has been a big concern. Magnesium supplement is a great idea...would Epsom salts work? I wonder how to dose that?
  6. I've got a mare right now with the same problem....

    I've got a mare right now with the same problem. I'm having blood work done today because in 3 weeks on 24/7 pasture she hasn't gained a pound (I got her 3 weeks ago, teeth and dewormed). I'll be...
  7. Semitransverse closure of Perineal Lacerations

    I have a foster mare in surgery right now to repair 3rd degree perennial tear from an unassisted foaling. She has a tear from her vagina to her rectum - the poor thing has lived like this for 4 years...

    This. :(

    Thanks everyone. The stories lift me up - though they're hard to read.

    I do have distractions. One of my 2 fosters goes in for surgery tomorrow to have her pelvic floor repaired. This...

    I've considered it. I'm not afraid of counseling (I'm a counseling grad student)...but I suppose it will be hard to open up the can that I sealed up to get through the worst year, you know? I don't...
  10. I feel like, if I ever get this close to a horse...

    I feel like, if I ever get this close to a horse again and lose it, I'll break in to a million tiny pieces. I don't feel like I can physically manage it again. It almost feels like there's nothing...

    I think I need to hear that it just hurts - that it's normal. That there isn't something wrong with me...so thank you.
  12. Does the pain go away? I lost my mare 3 weeks ago...

    ...she's not the first horse I've lost. In fact, I've sadly buried 3 horses in the past 18 months. This one is taking a toll.

    Some of you may remember that I went through a nasty divorce almost 2...

    Travers schedule?

    I can't find a post time schedule for Saratoga for Saturday. Does someone have a link? And anyone know who will be airing it? I'm trying to rearrange dinner plans....

    Oh gosh, how embarrassing - thank you for the answer Pronzini and Findeight. I'd meant to post on another thread where the question made more sense. Thanks for being kind and answering anyway! I...

    I agree. As crazy as the nutter fan-girlzs are, I don't think CC's people are in the right place. He IS tucked up and looks dehydrated in a lot of pictures. Personally, I can't stand what I read...

    I'm like you - I used to board horses and so I never had time for anything but caring for other peoples' horses. Once I got rid of the boarders, I was so much happier! I'm EVEN happier now that I...
