Team story

[p][b]It is with great sadness we have to pass on the news that Aries has lost his fight against Grass Sickness. He has battled amazingly over the past 7 weeks and we all hoped he was going to pull through.[/b][/p][p][b]He developed a nasty bladder infection which wouldn't respond to antibiotics. We stopped tube feeding him on Monday to see if he would gain an appetite and start eating for himself, but he didn't manage and there was still no change with his bladder infection. He went very peacefully in the sun on the hottest day of the year.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]All the Vets and Nurses at Liphook Equine Hospital have been amazing -their care, determination and communication has been outstanding. We can't thank them enough.[/b][/p][p][b]Thanks to everyone for supporting and donating. It has been a difficult and emotional couple of months - all the vets and staff thought he had a chance but unfortunately it wasn't to be.[/b][/p][p][b]Aries was one of the most popular horses on the yard and will be greatly missed by members, volunteers and staff.[/b][/p]
