I’ve been boarding Magic (an Anglo – Tennessee Walker cross) for a friend for years. I originally volunteered to board her in her retirement because she never got hurt and she never got sick. Yesterday morning, she was screaming for her breakfast. This morning, she was showing signs of colic when I went to give the horses their breakfast. After consulting with her owner and vet, she was euthanized around 10:00 am. Although her ground manners left a bit to be desired, she was an awesome trail horse, search and rescue horse, and field hunter in her time.
