This morning I woke up to a very sad email. My mother sent me an email telling me she had to put her horse down. Ruby was my mother's main riding horse. She was the mare my mom used for all her posse stuff. Ruby was just 11 years old (young for a horse) and she had just really made progress with all the games and flags and drills that my mom rode her in . Apparently within 24 hours Ruby had become so ill that euthanizing her was the humane thing. The vet suspected colic as the cause of the mare's pain and quick decline in health. . . .an autopsy revealed that Ruby had some major issues with her stomach/intestines. She had an intestine that was twisted. My mother was pretty devisted. I can only imagine how much my horses mean to me & losing one would be so tough. My heart breaks a little for my mom and a little for Ruby. For me a horse is more than a pet. . .
