Emergency Vet Visit

The cold weather has decided to try and slowly kill my Arabian horse this winter. And ironically he is having the same issues my dad had couple weeks ago and had to be taken to the ER. When I heard this news I was like "no not you too!" I'm not so sure I can handle something else like this right now. Even though I try and show a tough girl front, I can't always do it when everything rains down at once. My horse has always been this spunky crazy Arabian with a spirit that never fades. And now he just wants to stop eating and drinking water - causing his gut to tangle up and put him into alot of pain. Then he rolls on the ground trying to get comfortable. And once a horse is on the ground it's never good. So he has had a lot of babysitting this weekend and we decided to just take him to the vet today for IV treatment. He needed this IV bad, he was dehydrated and there is no way to make a horse drink. So I'm praying this Intravenous Therapy helps him out and I can have my horse for a bit longer.

And honestly cold weather, you can go now. You are doing me no good.

See him healthy at What A Stud
