John Henry Update September 17, 2007



Hello Everyone,

I just spent the past three days (9-14 to 9-16) with John Henry. He had a good day on both Saturday and Sunday. He was eating just about everything: including hay, carrots, mints, apples, his feed, chocolate muffins, donuts, grass, and Oreo crisps. He was also drinking lots of water. When I left on Sunday at 7 pm, he was in his paddock eating grass. He has the "look" in his eye, and his disposition is "typical John Henry." Please keep up the prayers, positive thoughts, and best wishes! Thanks!

Here are two pics from Sunday.

Thanks for visiting our beloved JH and updating us on his condition. We have been very worried! Is he still requesting to exercise and walk around the park?

Dr. John...Thanks for your JH report. Another message board said he was acting feisty and even bit
Cathy R's thumb. John being John. What a loveable old rascal.

I just went to the KHP website and checked out their news and media section. As of this morning, he was eating good, including sugar cookies! :-)

I've had animals on fluids before and they are simply the one of the best things to help an animal when they aren't feeling well - from whatever the disease may be.

I'm sure the extreme heat hasn't been helping this old guy any and it's so wonderful that he has so many people that care about him.

Thanks for the updates and the pictures.

Dr. John, Good to hear your report and see your pictures. I know all of us want to think John Henry will "live forever". He will always remain in our hearts and in our thoughts, but, even the highest earning gelding has to leave us one day. The JH fans of the world are in emotionally pain at the thought of letting John~John go because we love him so much. XOXO John Henry: I want what is best for you! See you soon little one...Judy G.

Thanks for the pix, Dr. John. I just read on Bloodhorse that John's walks have been suspended. Do you think that he will get them back? Sure glad he has The Look still.

Thank you for the updates on John. He's had close calls before and he's balked at leaving before. Yet we know his time here is a gift, so his continued presence is both miracle and blessing. May he enjoy his treats and get back to his walks soon.

Thanks Rhonda, Edie and all. I am presently visiting John this weekend, and he is doing well!
