Request: Please pray tonight for my daughter and her horse Silver; they need all the prayers they can get... Silver had a very high fever today and blood tests came back positive for anemia. There are several possible factors; one is really bad, the others, possibly treatable and treatable... we are hoping for the treatable one.... please keep them in your prayers tonight? THANK YOU ♥ (10/30/2012)
EARLIER in 2011:
We are happy to report how well Silver is doing....see current photos and comments for more:

See COMMENT # 177!!!!
My daughter's horse, Silver, was recently injured. He needs x-rays....the only trouble is that all their finances are tied up in other necessary things and this is an extra expense they cannot afford.
Silver is an amazing horse. Here are some photos of him that I have taken:
He is a 100% pure bred silver quarterhorse and has some excellent bloodlines....barrel racers and gymkhana winners are in his pedigree. His coloration is rare...the silver gene is a mutation that oftentimes doesn't prove 'true' in reproduction. In Silver's case, it has and he is a gorgeous, sweet horse.....like a cloud on the prairies he came from in North Dakota......
The injury came about as a result of his being in a new pasture and being 'low horse' on the totem pole, as it were. It looks like his may have cut his leg open on a stick or branch. The injury itself is clean and not infected, but because it was right above his hock, the joint has become swollen and the vet is worried that it might be more than synovial (sp?) fluid build up. He's on some special meds, but x-rays need to be taken to determine the cause of the swelling.
If you can help, please let me know here and I will contact you privately.
My daughter is also selling some pretty jewelry she's been collecting for emergencies....this might be it. The jewelry is fine quality and would make great Christmas gifts :)
Anyway, let me know?
Hugs and thanks,
