We gave it 100% but sometimes that isn't enought..

When we bought Mustang Sally from the knackery we knew that it would be touch and go. Sally had a very large growth on her eye and after two vet assesments, a number of tests, one of the best eye specialists and a USA professor it has been decided that the tumor is extremely aggressive and to far advanced for surgery. We tried to reduce the size on the tumor with special cream but sadly it kept growing. She also have another smaller mass which has just started to grow on her upper lid. There is nothing more we can do. In the few weeks that we have had Sally she has shown so much love. From a very scared, untrusting horse to a relaxed, loving mare who will follow you around looking for treats.

Pray for Sally
Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge.
Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a fighter
and fought her hardest until her last breath.
Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.
Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me in such a short time.
And grant me the courage to honour her
by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well
and let her know that I will always love her and that I tried to save her.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring me home.
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the short time we've had together.
And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now.

May your soul Rest In Peace Sally xxx
