Good bye My Budders

In August 2008. Captain Colicked.I hooked him up to IV fluids at my house and LIVED in his stall with him. Capped off his IV cath. and trailered him daily to and from work. With no sleep, for 8 days. I would literally run in the house to use the bathroom and my camping gear was in the barn with me..I slept next to him in his stall. If he would move I could feel him at least. He became to weak to trailer. He had to stay at the clinic. It made "checking" on him a little harder. I would make several trips in the middle of the night back and forth to and from the clinic..making sure he was "Okay".......he took a turn for the worse and foundered from all the medication.

At the time, I had no friggin' idea about training..our neighbors at the time followed John Lyons and I listened to them, they gave me pointers and the next thing...I'm riding him...falling in love with this horse. He and I bonded ...and soon we rode daily. I was like a little school girl again...running to Philomath ( i currently lived in Albany at th…
