Soxy is off her feed tonight and was very lethargic today. I haven't written about it because there was nothing I could really put my finger on, but she's gone downhill lately. I hope I'm worrying over nothing. It could be just a minor tummy ache, after all the weather is changing. If you wouldn't mind sending some prayers or healing, comforting thoughts, I'd really appreciate it. If it is her time to go I hope she goes quickly, peacefully and painlessly. But I keep reminding myself that it could be a little bug or infection. She was much like this when she started coming down with pigeon fever a few years back. But she didn't physically look as bad as she does now...
This picture is from last week. She doesn't look terrible, but her spine is prominent, and her face just looks old (of course you can't see that in the picture).

Sending good thoughts for the lovely old mare. (word verification "blesse")

I've seen Soxy once up in person. She seems like that typical old horse. My very first horse was about that age when we had to put her down. We have an Arab gelding that's going to be 23 in the spring and he's got melonoma's and everything. I hope she'll be okay. It's sad to lose a horse because they're like part of the family. My thoughts and prayers go to you and her.

Its tough when they get old isn't it. I worry about Ditto but she is still i fine fettle.

I hope she gets better, too. I've thought it was the end of the of the line many times for Old Red, but he has done turn arounds. I hope it's the same for Soxy. (He went off feed and water last year due to an abscess in his hoof.)
