I fell in love with the Gypsy Horses and after I bought my first one, it only took me a month to go looking for the next and then from there it has been a fever. Gypsy Horses are like potato chips, you can't have JUST ONE!!! We have 11 Gypsy horses, currently..

Oh no!!! This happened to Brook!!! Is it the Brooke that you have a profile for? Baby Brooke? No matter which Brooke it is, I know how horrible it must have been. I am so sorry you had to endure such a tragedy. I know how frightful this was for me. And your situation was much worse!

Fancy and Frances are grazing on by with a 'late night Fancy's feeling pretty good vote!'

Fancy is almost 100% herself again this evening. I have learned some valuable lessons during this new and trying experience. I have had horses for almost 20 years and this is the first time I have ever needed or used bute. Fancy has her craving for attention and action back now. I loved spending time with her, watching her playfulness this evening. I guess I will finally get some sleep tonight. I thank everyone for prayers and information. You guys are the greatest:~)

Leaving a vote with plans of sleeping when I am finally done") I don't mind the rain today because I am hoping it will help me sleep. LOL.
