    well, it seems to never rain but it pours.
    A while ago I posted in my excitement about my mare Macassa's beautiful new colt by A Fine Romance.. beautiful confident happy and wonderful colt.
    Saturday night he was showing signs of colic, so I took him and his Mommy to the University of Guelph clinic, arriving about 2 am..
    Things are not looking very good for this brave little man. They operated on him on Sunday morning and gave him about a 30% chance of survival.
    I am of course, heartbroken.
    Please, please jingle, pray, and ask whichever deity you think might care or be listening to help this baby boy.
    thank you so much
    Gail/Fred
    xoxo

    Gail, I'm so sorry about your boy. I'm jingling for him and you. Remember Cricket came through this OK and I'm hoping he will too.

    Mega-jingles from sticky, south Louisiana.

    Someone told me when I was having a run of really bad luck, that God never gives us more than we can handle, to which I responded, "I think He has way too much faith in me!" http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif But, I did get through it and I know you will too.

    You were already in my prayers and now I'll add baby boy to my list. Hang in there, Gail.

    I have just spoken with Gail and she and Garnet are on their way to U of G to visit the little one. I can't believe the crap life has thrown at her lately. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif Please take a minute and say a little prayer or jingle or just keep her in your thoughts.

    I had a reply all typed out...but COTH seems to have eaten it......

    Oh Gail, I am jingling like crazy for your little guy.

    I was just out at Gail's on Saturday mid-day to get some photos of her "kids"......and was just running the proofs when I heard about this. I hope Gail doesn't mind, but I'm going to throw a couple pictures up....so the COTH crowd can "meet" this little guy themselves.......
