the date is set means that we know when we are going to put him down. fortunately I was unable to do that for my love for him. thanks for leaving Skipper a vote!

UPDATE: the vet came over last night and suggested that take Skipper out mornings and nights and walk him around for about 20 minutes, I did and amazingly he seemed to perk up just a little bit. the vet is for sure that Skipper will never be a riding horse ever again but as long as he is alive i am fine with that. Jr. (skippers five year old son( was put down on Monday July 20th. He is forever missed. Flick was able to compete for me on the 18th and she placed first in discipline on the rail. :) Jeff unfortunately ripped a muscle at the show, but he should be up and running again in no time. Sybil is going to a 10 day show in OK for the NRHA derby and I am hoping she will do good. anyway Skipper still isn't doing great but i hope he is on the road to recovery. (It will be long and extremely hard though)He still doesn't put much weight on his right leg and usually when he does he hits the ground really hard and then when I put him back in the stall he just lays down. He is feeling better from the colic surgery, and his neck is looking a lot better. hopefully the scars won't be too noticeable. I am out in the barn with him right now and he doesn't seem like he wants to do much. All he really does now is lay in his stall and looks like he just can't take the pain anymore. He doesn't eat and I rarely seem him drink water. hopefully that doesn't do anything to him. Thanks to everyone for praying for him it means a lot to us!
