    "Oh for the love of horse"
    Passion all dressed and ready for bed.
    Its hard to thing, less than a few days ago I held her head in my arms thinking she would die. Begging her to hold on, there was help on the way. Rubbing her beautiful face and praying for a miracle to give me just one chance to try and save her.
    Tonight she's fighting strong. Hit me in the face with the hay net, knocked the feed bucket out of my hands and all she wants is to break free, but she is not ready yet.
    She needs to stay calm and recover but the princess knows better. So she thinks…
    She is one hell of a miracle horse.
    And the best news in the world? The vet gave her a 70% chance tonight.
    Susan our vet nurse cant believe how much she has improved.
    I think nobody can.
    The power of love…xx

    Passion had a group of children from Lauragh school visit today.
    They raised 120eu and there is only 18 kids in the school. Very well done guys, so now your school is a patron of AHAR.
    Thanks to Oisin, Tomas, Aaron, Conor, Stephen, Harry, Thomas and their two teachers Liz O'Sullivan and Rachel Sheahan
    Fantastic little kids who were very impressed by Passion and all the animals.

    Thanks to Suzanne Dillon who came from Limerick tonight to babysit the house animals, like the baby hedgehog and foxes and a few more while Tina and I stay with Passion for the night.

    Don't get a fright. She looks worse than she is. Remember she is older and had so much more surgery done. I took the photo and left her sleep. Her mouth looks amazing, her lips work again. Tom said he is delighted with her progress. More photos tomorrow morning.

    Romeo only 80 mins after his operation. He is flying. Like a new dog. He has a new mouth and a few teeth missing but a small price to pay for his new life. I cant believe the beautiful job Tom did. Out of this world.

    Emergency transport needed for this baby hedgehog. He's only two weeks old and needs professional care. Dan from Kildare animal foundation wildlife unit has offered to take him. We will take care of him till transport is found but the faster he is with Dan the better. Anyone going near Kildare?

    Just spoke to Tom. Romeos surgery was a huge success. Now he is starting the hardest one of all. Juliet.
    The next few hours will feel like they are never ending. Its a very long surgery as he has so much to reconstruct in her tiny body.
    I feel like an obsessed mother, between Romeo, Juliet and Passion.
    I have aged 10 yrs in the last few days. I think i'll need plastic surgery from Tom next lol.
    Thanks for all your support, donations and talking to me on face book for the last few days. Just having your support and knowing I can rant away to all of you is a massive help. xx

    Passion this morning is trashing the hay net. Stamping the ground demanding her breakfast, and neighing at her maids to run around after her.
    Her legs got a bit swollen last night so we are cold hosing them and the vet is changing her meds to reduce the swelling. But this is to be expected.
    So far so good. Everything going to plan.

    Battery dying in lap top, so its good night from all at AHAR.
    Candles burning bright for "Passion"
    Very soon the sun will rise on another day she has survived xx

    This was Bob. The love of my life. There is a hole in my heart that feels like its missing a beat since he died. Thanks to Passion, I think that hole is healing at last. She needs me as much as Bob did, I bet he sent her xx

    Tina and Emma lit two candles last night and tonight for Passion. They are burning bright tonight. This mare is fighting against all odds to live. Yesterday the vet said 20% tonight 50% chance to live. At least the odds are getting higher.
    Everytime im out of her sight, she neighs to call me back. There is just this powerful bond developed between us.
    13mnts ago, I lost the love of my life "Bob" to colic.
    He was 17hands and everyone had given up on him. We went on to win almost every show we entered. He was my life.
    I have not had the heart to showjump since or get attached to a horse. My heart is broken.
    But maybe I needed this mare as much as she needs me. To get me back to who I was before Bob died. To love a horse again.

    Massive thanks to the famous Fenton (horsey) family who came all the way from Cork to help with Passion.
    Mary is gifted with horses. I've seen her bring them back from deaths door.
    She is really happy with her tonight and we brushed and washed her to the last hair on her body. All the hard lumps of dirt that covered her body are gone. She loved it. Shaking her lips with delight of being scratched.
    She has been topped up with all her meds and is really responding. She is tearing the hay net apart. Bashing it around the stable. I'm so afraid to get excited, but she looks like she is turning that corner… and galloping home with everything she has got.
