    It's ironic, I just posted a photo from Sunday. After the hurricane passed I found my beautiful Callie down in the field. The vet and a lot of my friends got there quick. We couldn't get her up. We all tried everything. She had hurt herself as well as coliced. After hours of trying and everyone fighting to save my sweet girl we had to call it. She wasn't ready, and tried so hard. What a horrible day, for her and everyone involved. She was an amazing horse and loved by a lot of people. It was all too quick. My gelding hasn't ever been lame or sick and I've never gone through something like this. This picture was Sunday and last night she was dead. I know it's just what happens, I'm an adult and have experienced my fair share of death, it's just tragic. IMG_20170913_080242_060.jpg

    I'm so sorry. Have read about other people's horses getting colic during the hurricane too. :bawling:
