Just a quick post before surgery to show you pics of all of the horses in their new/old digs.
WRIGLEY AND DALTON
Dalton is still in training with Thru-Rider, Gillian Larson. Wrigley, and I still cannot believe it, passed away suddenly right after we arrived back to GV. He appeared sick, we brought him to the Equine Hospital and within a week, he had passed (Oct 20). The diagnosis was a bacterial infection that went to his heart. Even though he was on serious antibiotics, if the heart is not functioning well, the other organs needed to wash the blood of the infection/antibiotics cannot do their job. So, basically, his kidneys and liver failed while we were trying to save his heart. It was a delicate balance and we lost. I still cannot really talk about it. But I promise a tribute soon. He was MT’s last baby… and he was born right here in the barn at the Grass Valley house. I am truly thankful that he got to come home before he passed.
