Re: Re Now Eating issues & loss of pasture mate.WAS: Testing ACTH & Doxycycline Question:


Hi Corinne -
Are you planning a replacement for your mare as a new buddy for Jasper? If you get the replacement now, Jasper could become used to it and not have as hard a time when your mare has to go.

Also his pasture mate of 11 years is going to be put down this fall or sooner,my mare who's 28 1/2 years old. Her health is declining and she gotten skinny despite all the hay and 15lbs of senior feed divided up into 4 feedings. She has heaves which is getting harder to control having more and more flare ups/even on Lung EQ. Also has DSLD on both front legs and fetlocks are dropping more and one leg has bowed a tendon.

So how do i get him through the loss of his best buddy? i don't want him pacing the fence and screaming for days looking for her. Hard enough to go through this then to have jasper screaming and looking for her will be heart breaking.
