    Default Jingles please for Flirt -Update pg5 :)

    I just got back from taking her to Cornell (with Val).

    She presented with what appeared to be a mild colic this morning. No temperature, so I gave her some Banamine and put them out figuring she would work it out of her system that way. I was teaching lessons in the ring adjacent to their field and watching her at the same time. She lay down, but wasn't thrashing or rolling and not in obvious pain, just looked "dumpy". By 1pm, I wasn't seeing any improvement so I brought her in. I had called the vet earlier to uncancel a call that had previously been made for an insemination - but couldn't get the semen so canceled. She took a piece of carrot, chewed it, then spit it out. I called again and made the request more urgent.

    Vet arrived at 4 and palpation showed nothing majorly "colic" - her heart rate was extremely high, respiration high, and her color was pale. She looked to be going into shock. It was determined that she needed to go to Cornell because he could not diagnose any further with his field instruments and her heart rate warranted it.

    We take her and Val out to the trailer and Val walked right up the ramp and jumped into the trailer!!!! Flirt got on the trailer and went down as soon as we closed it up - shuffled Val to the front and took off. Even while Flirt was being worked on at Cornell, Miss Val was treating the experiennce like a great adventure .

    Diagnosis from Cornell - extensive internal bleeding. Odd for 6 weeks post foaling. There was no apparent mark or swelling from being kicked - and no way to determine where the bleed is coming from. Even if she was a surgical candidate, she was in no condition for anasthesia. Original prognosis not good at all.

    The hooked her up to fluids, something to help clot, oxygen, and gave her a blood transfusion. When I left, she was looking better, had peed, and was thinking of munching hay. Prognosis better, but still not good. I could use some prayers please!

    Oh no! I am jingling like crazy for poor Flirt.
    I hope they can get the bleeding under control, poor girl.

    I am glad that Val is being a champ, that helps. Let me know if you need anything.

    I'm so sorry! Jingling and prayers for poor Flirt. If she can hang in there tonight I would imagine that her chances will improve quite a bit. It's the immediate blood loss that is usually the problem. Thank heavens you were able to get her there right away.

    You are right arnika - if she makes it through tonight and the bleeder clots, she will stay a few more days to limit her stress and then come home.

    I was much more hopeful when I left than when I arrived - actually afraid she wouldn't survive the trip.
    I gotta do-over and am doin it my way!!!

    That must have been horribly scary. Especially when she went down in the trailer. I wouldn't even want to imagine it.

    Good heavens, HUGE JINGLES coming from Ontario - I know this feeling all to well. And people wonder why we have eyes in the back of our heads! That was excellent that you noticed her off and caught it early.

    JINGLES JINGLES!!!! for a speedy and full recovery for FLIRT!

    JINGLES! Please do keep us posted! I'm glad that she was a bit perkier when you left though. Sounds like Val is quite the champ too! Hopefully things continue to improve!!!!

    Oh my! Many jingles for Flirt coming from Colorado.
    There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

    Scary. I would have never thought bleeding this far after delivery. Sending prayers for Flirt to make a fast recovery.
