I haven't blogged lately because Lucille was starting to have some REAL problems. First, she wasn't eating her hay, so we tried her on pellets. That didn't work either. My vet was out early this month and filed her teeth and gave her her shots, but I noticed she was very hairy and thin. She did a test and it confirmed that Lucille had Cushings. I couldn't afford the $100 a month meds. Then the ranch owner said her back end was wobbly, like she had neurological damage. She continued her downward slide of not eating, and yesterday she peacefully passed over the Rainbow Bridge. We don't really know how old she was. She had been used at another ranch in Anza for several years and then the other boarder bought her and boarded her up at the ranch for about 5 years. My vet said she was well over 20 years old. She had a good life, she was always taken care of, and she was loved. Now she is free to roam the skies with Beauty and Cali.
RIP Lucille. She was a big horse with a big heart.
