From Lady’s foster “mom”:

Friday Feb. 23rd I went a picked up a mare that was so torn up from trauma from a birthing experience that she couldn’t walk on her back legs. Massive infection and high fever. I padded my trailer because I couldn’t imagine she would still be standing when I got to the vet. To my surprise and the vet’s she was. She was taken into intensive care and given over 50 liters of fluids to rehydrate her. Three days later her fever broke and she was solidly improving, little did we know that it was just temporary.

This last weekend I said goodbye to my Lady. She started a discharge of rank infection and could no longer fight off everything that was happening to her. She was ready to cross the bridge. She laid down and was in her forever sleep before the vet administered the final euthanasia.

At least Lady had a week of feeling better, less pain, eating again and loved.

This breaks my heart each and every time it happens. Lady, we will miss you, I will miss you. Goodbye.
