Found The Horse

And she is alive! She has lost weight and is drawn up, but overall in good shape. It looks like ehrlichia strikes again. She will be our third horse to get this nasty tick borne disease. It hits them hard and fast. She is in the barn with Charlie now and we will see how she does in the next couple of days and take her to the vet if needed on Monday.

Jo and Eric went out on horseback today looking and followed Lilly's tracks right to Hersha. Lily and Hersha are best friends and apparently Lilly has been going back and forth between the herd and her hurting pal. Way to go Lilly! If you recall Lilly had ehrlichia this summer so I bet she had horsey compassion for her compadre.

Now if we could only find Kate.


  1. I'm so glad! I'm keeping an eye out for the dog, too.

  2. I'm so glad to hear she was found!

  3. Phew- one down, one to go. Prayers up that Kate comes home post haste TJ. You feeling better??

    Give Hersha a BIG rub, and tell her we'll be thinking of her, and hoping she gets better quick too! Way To Go Lilly!! ;)

  4. I read your link and it seems this is a disease prevalent in Northern Colorado. Fortunately, we don't have ticks around us and for that I'm thankful. I'm glad you found her and prayers going up for finding your dog.


  5. I am feeling better, Mrs Mom. Not 100 percent, but I was able to hold down food and water today and went out and fed animals. And Dan, I think the link said prevalent in Northern California, and it is quite prevalent here.

  6. wow - so glad you found your horse. I know that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when your horse doesn't show up with the rest of the herd. ugh.
    so hope you find your dog too.
    and you get well too!

  7. SO glad you found her. Hope your other baby comes home soon too.

  8. I'm SO glad you found her, and before she got sicker. Now we'll pray the dog comes back.

  9. I am so glad you found your horse for the dog. I am glad you are feeling better.


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
