    Besides which, isn't there already a pretty incredible invasive snake species situation down there with Burmese pythons?
    Yes, she had colic. Third episode in a year and was treated by the vet for three days straight will little results. His recommendation was surgery, five-figure surgery which most sadly was not an option we could choose. The second option was hospitalization at the vet clinic at four figures a day. Also not realistic. So we did all we could and from time to time thought we saw improvement, but then after a week and a half came a point where it was clear it just wasn't going to turn around and we had to make that dreaded decision. I stayed with her through the end. So she's in Heaven now and I'll have to wait a while before I can see her again.

    Excuse me. I think I need a tissue ....

    Thank you, Tom. It just goes with the territory. Having animals is wonderful, and I wouldn't be without them, but it means one day I won't have them anymore and I know that going in. I miss her, will likely always miss her, but I give her best friend, our herd boss (she was boss mare), an extra cookie every day when he goes out so that he can share it with her if he sees her. I don't think he does that, though. I think he eats them all himself.
