don't worry about it. You have to take care of yourself first. I know how
painful loosing an old friend can be. A few years ago we lost a horse about
the same age, and we always have the danger of a mass colic epidimic because
of the amount of hay we keep. I hope the other two horses are getting over
it okay. I'll take a lot of pictures or send my camera around with people
and post them on the list.
Our prayers go out to you in your time of need.
