My horse Tim died this morning. I am a little confused as to exactly what happened. Friday he was lame so they gave him bute Fri and Sat. Sat he was fine again. Sun he was acting funny so vet came out again and gave him some shots. He thought the bute made his stomach upset. This morning he died. The vet said from colic. ? Anyways, Tim was a great horse. He was a strawberry roan QH. He was my first horse that was completely mine. I got him around 1995. I learned to ride english on him. We learned how to jump together. Before I got him he was only ever used as a trail horse. We did very well in the local show circuit. He never once bucked or reared or anything like that. He always did everything I asked except flying lead changes. He didn't like those. Around 2001 he started to get arthritis in his hind leg so I quit jumping him and just sort of retired him. I don't know what else to say. I am a little shocked by all this. He was always perfectly healthy. And he wasn't that old, 20. My other horse we have is about 40+. ? I feel like the angel of death or something. Everything around me seems to be dying. First it was my grandfather, then my great grand mother, then my dad, then my dog Stanley, then my cat Whitey, then my other dog Samantha, and now Tim. All within like 4 yrs. All before their time. If I didn't have Indy to take care of I'd end this nightmare.
