Thank you so much for all your prayers and shares. Unfortunately, Cactus Jack left this earth a short time ago. He died wrapped in the arms of the best foal mama on the planet, safe and warm in Dayton. He had all the symptoms of tetanus, and his little umbilical cord was infected. He had many other issues and I can only thank God that he did not die alone and scared on the range. Critical foal care is heartbreaking so often, but Thank God he was surrounded by love and warmth. There aren't many things worse than for an injured or critically ill foal to be out in the wet and cold, alone and scared when they leave this earth. So we do whatever we can for them, even if it is just to keep them comfortable until their time is here. Shirley is by far the best foal mama you could ever know, and although she knew the most likely outcome, she did everything that could possibly be done for him.. She called us when we were on the road and had us turn around so we wouldn't waste the 400+ miles worth of fuel and could save it for the next one. Thank you again for your prayers for him.
