I thought that since this forum was named after my beloved Little Bit, that I would tell you a little bit about him and post some of my favorite pictures of my baby boy. Smile

I adopted Little Bit when he was 12 days old. I fell in love with him the moment I laid eyes on him at the age of 8 days old. A friend gave him to me. His dam was 36 inches tall and his sire was 34.5 inches tall and a national champion driving horse.

Little Bit was a CHAMPION in my eyes! Smile

Because of Little Bit's health problems I decided that he needed to live in the house with my sweet husband and I. He slept on a therapeutic dog bed right beside my bed every night. One of Little Bit's favorite things to do was to graze, even though he had an underbite and the front of his little mouth was twisted, he could graze just as good as any horse! His little friend Tessa would come into his BIG back yard and graze with him, he enjoyed her company, but he did not like her to boss him around!

I was blessed with having my Little Bit for 3 years and 2 months. He passed away on June 2, 2003.

One month to the day earlier, he had colic surgery at Texas A & M. for an impaction, as his colon has folded over onto itself, and then twisted around itself..... I wanted to give my baby every chance at life. We really didn't think he would even survive the anesthesia, but then he had already surprised a lot of vets in his 3 years of life! He did quite well after his surgery, they let me bring him home after 5 days. He did well for the first 3 weeks, however he started getting a lot of gas colics in the evenings and 4 weeks to the day after his surgery he was impacted again....I felt I could not put him through another colic surgery, and the vets agreed with me. They did the fluid therapy on him and eventually he did start having bowel movements again. All of the folks at A & M were so very good, they bent the visitation rules a lot for me and let me stay with him as much as I could. All the vets and students had fallen in love with him, and one student named Jenny, had taken him under her wing and sat with him a lot in his crib when I couldn't be there. They told me that Little Bit just closed his little eyes and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge....I feel so bad that I could not be there with him. It was at 4:00 A.M. June 2nd. 2003. At 4:08 his vet, Dr. Knight called me, as soon as the phone woke me up, I knew who was calling and why.:( She told me she thought it was all just too much for his little heart to withstand.

We brought Little Bit home with us and he is burried under his favorite trees where he liked to graze in his back yard by the pond.

It's been almost 17 months now since Little Bit passed away, I still miss him something awful and there probably hasn't been a day go by yet that I haven't cried for my baby. He will always and forever be right here with me in my heart. He changed my life, and it will never be quite the same without him. I think he was given to me, to teach me about these special little horses, so that I could help others. I know that he found little Inky and Fairy for me right away so that they would keep me busy and my mind off of loosing him.

Little Bit was my inspiration for the little *Magic Shoes* and there is a "little bit" of him in each and every shoe that goes out to other horses that need help.

Thank you for letting me share my baby boy with you....Janell
