R.I.P. Sonny 9/11/2013

But Angels are only servants. They are spirits sent from God to care for those who will receive Salvation. Hebrews 1:14

RIP Sonny….. YOU my man have received YOUR Salvation and you more then deserve that! Run Free thru the meadows of Heaven in the pure BLISS I know you are experiencing now. You are FREE from all of your earthly burdens and NOTHING can stop you now!!!

It is so heartbreaking to loose Sonny especially after such a long and hard fight he put up. As many have seen over the past several months via Facebook Sonny has been fighting a horrid case of Dryland Distemper (Pigeon Fever) which he was returned to us with. He was seen by our vet immediately after his return and was started on medications to help get him thru this ordeal. But in true Sonny fashion it turns out it was not just a simple case of Dryland Distemper and in the end it took his life.

If anyone recalls he is the same horse that when he had strangles several years ago he got the rare case of Bastard Strangles which is not real common… then with that the extremely RARE case of Purpura Hemorrhagic that came with the strangles as well. But, he fought hard and he got thru all of it! What a trooper he was!

Now more recently he fought hard and long with his Dryland Distemper and was quite the stoic boy and never showed a sign that he was ready to “throw in the towel” until the very end. I still look to his stall and see an empty spot there and in my heart. We will miss you Sonny and you sure have left a huge impression on my life and I am so glad I was blessed with your presence!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped with donations, kind words, and all the support for Sonny thru his entire time here with Under the Angel’s Wings Rescue we could not have done this without you!
