Poor Apache

My mom's horse Apache is suddenly really sick, and his diagnosis is not good. Of course, every option to help him runs upwards of $6000, a sum none of us have right now.

I'm just sick about it. He's the best horse, he's beautiful (half Arabian/half Paint), he's "bomb proof", and we've had him since I was a little girl. He's the inspiration for little kid's Horse Mania. He's also the last horse my family has.

Even worse, my mom's just been dealing with one thing after another lately. She loves her animals like she loves her children, I hate that she's having to deal with something so truly painful when life's hard enough anyway lately.

So if you pray, or send good vibes, or hope, please do so for Apache and my mom.

I am sending positive thoughts and prayers to you and your family .. losing an aninal is very hard .. something non-pet owners dont understand .. I do...

If I was rich I would send you $6k because that's how much sick animals affect me.

Instead, please take my good vibes that I will be sending your way all day.

I'm so sorry Ashley, I too understand the loss of a pet. It's heart-wrenching. I'll keep your mom, Apache and your whole family in my thoughts and prayers.

There is something so special about horses. We had a small stable of Trotters and Pacers we ran at the tracks in and around the greater Chicagoland area. We had a mare named Blinkey's Pride that was the sweetest, gentlest thing on four legs. Until she hit the track. She did NOT like anything or anybody to pass her by. Period. I understand your Mom's feeling about her horse. I'm praying, hard, for Apache to get better.
