I have some very sad news about Scout. Yesterday afternoon I was on HC when I looked out the window and saw that Scout was out trying to walk around again. I hurried out to him and tryed to keep him up but he collapsed again. My mom and dad were gone at the time but Ethan called my aunt and got the vets emergency number. We got ahold of the vet but she didn't get here until it was almost dark out. She checked his heart rate, temp. etc. and said that he was probably collicking. She sedated him and put a tube up his nose to try to get some fluids in him but he didn't keep them down. When she first got here she said that his gums were not the right color and that he might be toxic but after she had given him some banamine and sedated him she said they looked a little better. She said that he might die during the night but if he was up and drinking he might be okay. However if he was down again she said that there was nothing else she could do. It was windy and cold out so we locked him in the shed and covered him with blankets. At 4:00 this morning I went out to check on him and he had somehow gotten out of the shed and was down again, groaning and in pain. My dad called the vet and she came out to put him down. I sat with him while we waited for her to get here and told him goodbye. The vet said that some horses thrash around when they are put down but Scout stayed very calm and went peacefully. Words cant describe how I feel, I just cant believe he's gone. Even though I only had him for a little over a month I loved him so much. He was probably the sweetest horse I have ever met. It is going to be so hard without him. Thank you so much for being here for me. Love you, Maria
