Hug Your Horses
A friend of mine lost her beloved gelding today. He was 24, sound and apparently in very good health - she rode him last night. Sometime in the night, he coliced badly. This morning, he was in distress and she had him trailered to the vet clinic, and the vets told her there was nothing they could do - surgery in his case had less than a 5% chance of working - he apparently ruptured his intestine. So all of us need to hug our horses - every day we have them - you never know how long you have.
