    Default NEED HUGE, HUGE jingles for badly injured horse-VERY sad update

    Hey all I need a mountain of jingles for a morab we have here-Eddie. Eddie has always been a screwball and accident prone but this time it's realy serious. In the past he's nearly put an eye out, fractured his skull-just messing around. His owner lives out of state.

    He has damaged his neck and is exhibiting terrible ataxia and can't coordinate this body. Vet has been out, he's had IV DMSO, Banamine, Dex.

    We noticed it this AM and I managed to get him out of the pasture and when he went down, and me on top of him, I kept him down, administered Banamine and lightly sedated him until the vet arrived. When he was able to stay down for about 45 minutes-1 hour-that's how long it took for the vet to get here, he was able to stand up, walk himself into a stall, stood for the vet to do her thing. His back was not roached up, no ataxia really, almost like his old self.

    Now he's back to being very ataxic. I called the vet again and we are back to lightly sedating him to keep him down and quiet. We are tiptoeing in the barn so not to disturb him-he's a action kind of guy.

    I am worried sick as I love this little ADD horse.

    So I need all the jingles you can spare. The next 24-48 hours are really critical.

    He's a wonderful boy. He's only 6.


    **it's 10:00 PM and we just got back from delivering Eddie's body to Cornell Necropsy. His condition was deteriorating depite the efforts and it was decided the best thing was to euthanize him. This happened about 6:30 PM. Our local fire department came with a winch and helped us get him into our trailer.

    You try to disassociate yourself to these surreal events in your life. 24 hours ago he was a happy ADD horse. Oh, the stories about him from us would make you probably bust a gut from laughing. He as such a character. Tonight we only told good Eddie stories.

    My 15 year old daugther handled it SO well. She hopes to be a large animal vet someday and despite being able to witness some amazing things, I alway shield her from things such as this. She's still my baby afterall.

    Eddie is now up in heaven with are other beloved animals and my dad. Eddie loved being here and we so enjoyed having this funny, screwball of a young horse. We had the honor of having Eddie twice in for training-for extended periods of time too. He spent much of his young life here with us. I cannot even express just how much he will be missed.

    In honor of him for his owner, when our mare's foal, who is about to foal at any time, will be named Eskimo Dreams. See Eddie's name was Dreams in Eskimo.

    Thank you everyone who jingled so much. It has poured rain here since his death and my daughter said tonight, "It's raining so hard mom b/c God is crying for Eddie". I know I am crying loads of tears too.

    God Bless you Eddie. Thank you for being such a part of our lives. You will never be forgotten.

    Jingling in MI.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    I'm so sorry. Are you sure it's an injury and not some kind of migrating parasite?

    I only ask because one of my goats once picked up a protozoa and had symptoms of ataxia.

    Good luck.

    I don't normally post my jingle-thoughts, but I'll make an exception for a fellow Morab. Hang in there, Eddie!

    A friend had a weanling injured that displayed those symptoms.
    X rays showed a broken neck, the first vertebra.
    They kept him very confined, eventually he could go out and this year they are riding him lightly without trouble, so there is hope your horse will come thru.

    Those things just take good supportive care and your horse is getting that and oodles of time.

    Best wishes for an uneventfull recovery.

    Default Keep them coming.

    Thanks everyone! You all are going to make me cry. I just administered more light sedation. When he heard me enter the stall, he was down dozing, he stood up and was much more steady on his feet.

    I will be doing this round the clock to him so we work on keeping him quiet and hopefully he will mend.

    THANK YOU for the jingles. Keep them coming!! He still needs them.
    If he needs 6 months stall rest we are up to meet that challenge. I've done it before and I am committed to doing it again.

    SEPowell, they did take blood but given the nomanclature I think it's an unfortunate fooling around accident.
