Gorgeous Albi crossed the rainbow bridge this morning :(

He was diagnosed with PSSM back in the summer after 18m of weird, degenerative symptoms and despite Jill sticking to the recommended intensive exercise and feeding regime, his muscles had just basically seized him up. The vets were baffled and suspected a second myopathy. Albs was meant to have a muscle biopsy on Weds but had deteriorated so quickly in the last week that Jill didn't feel it was worth putting him through even more pain. I've done a couple of mercy dashes over this last week when we thought it was time. He tied up pretty badly on Saturday, just from hoolying in the field, (needed a vet visit and pain-relieving injection) so a retired life would never have suited him. Jill had my total support in her decision. He's now at peace and pain free. He was one in a thousand million.... and only 10.

Oh how sad and what a gorgeous boy. That's so unfair, so young. So sorry.

So sorry @domane so very sad to read. It’s very evident how much both you and Jill loved him. Run free Albi, beautiful boy xx
