Homer's got serious colic

Donna Coughlin


What a gift Homer was, and how fortunate that he had you caring so much for him.

He will stay with you forever–-I'm sure you'll hear his sage advice from time to time, and feel his love.

It was so peaceful, he's at peace now and hopefully eating as much grass and carrots as he wants. He wouldn't even eat grass and apple today.

We'll love him forever.

So sorry Andrea. Unlike people, our animals give so much and ask so little. You were brave to let him go.


I am very sorry for your loss, Andrea. It is allways hard to be left behind by one of our ponies.
Sure Homer will meet some nice guys up there to play with.

Andrea, my condolences to you.

It always saddens me when I hear of a loss on this list. We are all kindred spirits on this journey that our fur kids have sent us on- they teach us so much. It's one of the hardest & kindest things we can do in return for them.

Take care

He taught us so much. It's through Homer that I've learned what I have about laminitis, and because of him I've been able to help other horses with laminitis. He was only 18, his laminitis seemed well behind him, he gave Martin the best ride of his life only last Tuesday, he taught him to ride. We'll love him forever.

He's gone. His pulse had risen to over 60 and his lactate was above
normal, and he was in so much
Thank you all for your kind thoughts, and thank you so much Dr Kellon
for putting my mind at rest and making those last moments with him
