horrible day

Today is a horrible day for my daughter and her boss. Candy was watching Dee's horse and yesterday evening it became colicky. Candy was up all night with the horse. I spent all evening and all morning helping. We thought it was out of the woods, she was eating and passing gas. We walked that horse a long time. She and Johnny walked it all night. Yes the vet did come 3 times. Dee was in Florida. She drove all night to come home. This horse is her baby. This horse is in terrible danger right now. As I write Dee and Candy are on their way to Knoxville with the horse. That is the closest large animal hospital that can handle this. It is believed that her gut twisted. She is requiring emergency surgery. She may not make it The horse's name is Spirit. She is full of it. Pray that she can recover. Dee is taking this real hard. Last year when she went to Florida she had a horse get out and was killed when struck by a car.
