Karin and I pulled out right at 6:30 am to head to U of I. The Veterinarian attending Marika wanted us to be there at 9:00 am and we arrived with 10 minutes to spare. The bill for this emergency C section and the 6 day stay for the both of them was just over $6500.00. Much better than I'd anticipated. Thankfully the big wigs of U of I ended up reversing the charges for the bad colostrum and plasma needed because of the bad colostrum. The instructions were gone through the horses weighed then loaded up. The colt has gained quite a lot, he was up to 122 pounds. They traveled well, we stopped for gas in Carlock, IL which ended up being a good place to stop. Gas was $2.19 a gallon. Once home they were unloaded and stalled. Both were pretty tired from the trip.
