Update: I'm sad to say Solo's neurological symptoms began to occur again, changing the diagnosis to a fast growing brain tumor. She was laid to rest this morning. I'll miss her terribly! Godspeed, dear Solo!
I nearly lost my dear horse last month. She was stricken by an aneurism (brain bleed) during a regular workout, and went instantly blind in one eye, as well as suffering violent tremors and mental confusion for several days. Thanks to the help of many wonderful vets, barn folks, friends and strangers she has made a full recovery (including regaining her sight after three weeks of blindness!). She will spend the rest of her life in retirement. Thanks for all the great times, Solo!
