I hope your Mum enjoys her supper tonight, Verdun.
I also think you've made the right decision, Stacey.
When my horse was 30 he had pericarditis, inflammation of the lining of the heart. A young vet came and dosed him up with expensive medication. When I asked if he could put him to sleep the vet said he deserved a chance. Then old H collapsed and couldn't get up so I asked for the boss vet. Boss vet was furious and said he should have been put down and I told him young vet refused. Not a condition an old horse could survive so H suffered for longer and I had a big bill.
