So, I just wanted to talk about Brandy, the horse that I learnt to ride on, it’s about time I did a dedication post for him. Just one thing before I really start the post:
Thanks for letting me do a post like your’s about the same horse, Paris!
Well, I love this horse more than my own. If I had a choice to give up riding for his life, I would. No thinking about it, I love this horse more than anything.
In 2012, he got colic. Colic is like a stomach ache that some horses get, but this type of ‘stomach ache’ kills horses. A horse would be VERY lucky to fully recover from it. And this amazing horse did, because he’s strong, in and out.
When I found out, I was down at the stables, grooming my own (well, family) horse. As soon as I was told, I went out to his paddock, cut through the fence and stayed with him. My other friends, and people that love him came out too, but I stayed out there for about 1-2-3 hours. We all knew he was going to die, he only kept getting worse. We tried to get him up, because he was on the ground for too long, but all he did was run back, then fall back, he didn’t have enough strength to hold himself up.
We couldn’t put him through this pain any longer, the owner of the stable called the vet, and asked to put him down. We were all devastated. But then the vet couldn’t come, because she was held up with another horse.
We gave him the night, and a miracle happened. He stood up! That ment he getting more strength! Later in the day, he could take a couple steps! Talk about miracles! Clare (the owner) called off the vet, and he kept improving!
Now he is kept in the paddock, wondering around. He can’t be ridden anymore, but who cares, he survived!
I made a photopeach about him, but I couldn’t download it to my blog, so watch it….
