Seems like a long time ago, I'd asked a question about colic. We were going to get an old old donkey from a horse rescue place, but he was so repeatedly sick the transfer kept getting delayed.

I asked about colic. I got lots of great answers, but one really stood out--from Saddlebum. I printed it. Found it again today and re-read it and wanted to say thanks for fitting so much information into a couple of pages. It helped us so much during our first couple of months with Murphy (somewhere between 20 and 30, few teeth, foundered), but now he is happy and healthy (knock wood) and even plumping up a little bit. Lot of it is due to your encouragement.

I haven't seen you on the board since, but if you're lurking out there somewhere, thanks a million!

Hi Tom,
You are so welcome--I'm just glad to hear that it came in useful! Just our way of giving back from all the great advice people gave us when we have gone through similar "projects."

I'm mostly getting to come in and lurk once in a while...we're having a heck of a time with this computer (my PC guru says the motherboard is going out and it's not worth saving). But try to get by when I can, to at least read up on what's happening. Will probably be around more when we can get this PC replaced.

So glad to hear about how Murphy is doing--it takes special people to adopt these senior equines. Not too many people are willing to take on the challenges, but you sound like you're doing great!

Saddlebum (LeeAnn)
