It was a sad day today. Romney passed away at about 2:45 this afternoon with Ashley and I by her side.
It was a blustery day, but some of our conditioner riders were braving the cold and went to the Colvin Ranch to help the horses get used to going places. Romney, Cool Man, and Honey got to go. Romney was excited to be doing something different. She was alert and enthusiastic.
She and Mary had a good lesson. When she got home she unloaded just fine. She again was in good spirits and unloaded calmly.
About an hour later, Ashley called me for help. Rocky was chasing and biting Romney. This is unusual. We think that Rocky was trying to make sure that Romney didn’t go down. Something was wrong. As soon as they were separated Romney went down and had a seizure of sorts and 15 minutes later, she died. The vet thinks that maybe she had an aneurysm.
