Salta passed


Salta, my beloved mare was put to sleep after massive epilepsy attack and subsequent fatal spinal injury at age 25. Thank you for your support, thanks to this group, Salta was able to live a full life more then 5 years after her diagnosis. She was currently taking 2 prascend tablets. A few days before her death, she was full of strength and joy of life. Her loss is still a big shock to me. May be she had several seizures, Several times I found the fences down, but I didn't know why it happened. But the last one was too serious because it took place under a shelter. There is a camera, so I was able to watch the whole event in retrospect. I miss him very much, we lived together for 23 years

I'm so sorry Daniela. It's hard to fill the whole in one's heart when they leave us. May you find solace in 23 years of memories. Great work on your part to make happen those five great years after diagnosis. She loved you for it.

Run free, Salta.

So sorry to hear about Salta passing, Daniela.  My beloved Icelandic, Magic, also passed on January 1st and I had him for 22 years.  They are a big part of our lives and so missed when gone!!!

I'm sorry to hear it was time to let Salta go, Daniela.  I can understand why you're still in shock but I hope you find comfort in knowing her last days were good ones.

So sorry for your loss, Daniela.  25 isn't so old anymore... when I lost my first mare at 27 I was devastated so I'm feeling your pain since you probably thought you would have him a bit longer.  May she rest in peace with visions of green pastures and you, her best buddy.

I am so sorry to read this.  The camera is almost a blessing so you know what happened and when but it's a hard video to watch.  Thank you for providing her with such a good life.

My heartfelt condolences.  It's never easy to say goodbye, even when we know it's time.

Oh, you poor dear.  I watched your video.  It’s wonderful to know what happened, and yet so traumatic. 


I pray you have peace.
