I have had to have Ebony aka Mrs Knobberts put to sleep.

Got a call to the yard on Monday afternoon to say she was collicking. Rushed over there to find her white with sweat and her rug absolutely sodden :( Kept her walking while we waited for the vet and changed her rug while walking her. Vet arrived and examined her and said he needed to do an internal as there were no gut sounds at all. Did the internal and said her gut is badly twisted and displaced. The options were an operation to straighten the gut , cut off the dead gut and hope for the best. Following that with box rest which she would NOT do as the stress of being stabled would probably bring on another bout of colic. Or let my beautiful girl go.

I chose to let her go as being the best option for her. I was with her til the very end and now am heart broken but I know I have done the right thing for her which makes it a little easier

Thanks guys. Actually managed to go to the yard yesterday afternoon without crying for the first time since Monday.

Went to see Ebony's daughter and she nuzzled my face gently before going back to grazing :) Was very soothing
