Horses can leave you that way, more than just literally. Sometimes, no matter how careful you are, things happen. June 16th, 2013, we lost Viv to colic. Just days before I had been commenting how well she'd been doing, just over a year since she'd had surgery to correct a 180 degree twist of her large colon with 2013 foal Victor in utero.
Victor, fifteen weeks old now
Victor is almost four months old - like his big (half) brother Hugo, weaned early, but not at quite so early an age where it is too worrisome. It's an adjustment, most definitely, but he's old enough to adapt to a diet of hay and concentrate. Hugo, now a big, strapping yearling, is proof of that. Having gone through it with Hugo, I was prepared, at least, and Victor is doing well. It's up to these two handsome boys to carry on their mom's legacy.

Sweet, sensitive mare, sadly missed.
