    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    Such sad news to learn that you had to let Skye go. I am so sorry and hope you will take comfort in the good life you gave her. You were both blessed. Rest in peace Skye.

    Hugs from Colorado. Sorry to hear of your loss.
    Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.

    I just went through the same thing with my 25-year old gelding three weeks ago -- with the same outcome. He went back and forth for ten days -- colicking, not, colicking, not -- three emergency vet trips, a thousand dollars in bills, and lost him anyway. I'm so sorry about your mare -- but if they have a killing colic, there is no other outcome. They're lost when it starts, we just don't know it. And yes -- as much as we hate it, there's relief when it's done.

    As Lovey said -- hugs for you, Godspeed to your mare.

    RIP Skye. I am so sorry for your loss. She is galloping pain free with my beloved old guy I lost a month ago.

    Wow,just so sorry. Lost one of my guys that way when he was 31. Just heartbreaking. RIP to all of these, and hugs to you. Lucky mare to have such a loving mom.

    Thank you everybody. It feels so surreal. Friday night I was making plans to go trail riding with her Saturday, then Saturday morning when we found her all cut up from being cast we bandaged her up and the BO and I discussed booking our mares to stallions, getting them on the same cycle to save on the vet fees, etc. I was going to actually go through with breeding her this spring if the vet gave his blessing. Then as the day progressed everything fell apart with the final blow dealt yesterday. I keep wishing that I could just wake up and this all be a very, very bad dream.
