Prayer Request

Prayer request.....I know this seems so small with what's going on in Oklahoma right now, but my little mare, Justine, is super super sick. 

It all started Saturday evening, and at first we thought colic. But, she's about 5 1/2 months pregnant, and as timed progressed, we started to think it was a uterine torsion...basically the uterus has flipped over. After our second trip to the vet hosp. this morning, they ultrasounded her, palpated, and said her uterus is in great condition. Got to see the little baby's heartbeat....pumping along healthily at 120/min. 

We have absolutely no idea what's going on. At this point, the vets are as puzzled as we are. She is at the vet hospital till tomorrow morning, and we're basically just trying to wait it out. Overall, she acts totally normal, but then she has these rounds of incredibly intense pain. This morning, before we left for the vet, I thought she was going to die...the pain was so bad. It absolutely kills me to see her like this, and especially to not know what's going on. 

Justine is an amazing little mare - an incredible producer, solid driver, absolutely gorgeous. When people come over to go driving with us, she's always the one we give to them because she's so safe. Please, please pray that God would fix whatever's going on in her....cause right now He's the only One who knows what's going on.


  1. Aw, poor thing. :( But I prayed! At least she didn't have uterine torsion, it sounds like a terribly awful condition.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, we are glad about that...but at this point, we are just dying for some answers. Something that would tell us how to proceed....

  2. Have prayed, Lisa dear. I pray she heals swiftly and that the vets know what to do for her.
