Last night, Michelle's mare Rose passed away.
Vet is guessing it was a blood clot, or possibly too many toxins and not enough antibiotics. Since it was so hard to get any into her, she never did really have enough to fight off what ever that infection was.
All we know for sure is that she just laid down, went to sleep and did not wake up. She didn't thrash or struggle, once she laid down. That is obvious from the lack of marks on the ground.
Michelle is naturally pretty devastated, but is trying to take comfort in knowing that Rose is not in pain anymore.
Good Bye Rosie, run free in that big green pasture in the sky.
