I’m not sure the full details, but evidently Gus was fairly sound internally… the issue was his front legs. There had been an injury to both of his front legs (I haven’t received the details) and the vets at Rood and Riddle felt that he would be in pain his entire life.
So, Heart of Phoenix Rescue made the difficult decision to let him go.
Your donations (Thank you!) will go towards Gus’s emergency medical bills.
Thank you for all of your prayers, good will and donations. Knowing we were here, allowed Heart of Phoenix to do everything they could for Gus. Thank you.
Godspeed, little one. We all tried but the horsegods needed you with them.
