I am a friend of Debby Jusick.  On November 15, 2013, she posted that her gorgeous blue roan mare, Glitter, had been hit and killed on the road.  They had been properly contained, but critters being critters, they sometimes escape anyways.  This was made even more tragic by the fact that Glitter was to have a wonderful new family, with children who loved her very much, and that this tragedy occurred on Debby's birthday just takes it completely over the top.
I have asked her permission to set up a Fundrazer account, to try and help them with some expenses arising from this tragedy, in an effort to show her some love, and help them with the healing process.  The paypal account is hers, and all funds will go directly to her.
I cannot even imagine this happening to anyone, nevermind anyone with such a heart for animals as Debby has.
Please, I know it is close to Christmas, and that there are so many worthy causes out there, but if everyone puts in just a bit-we can help offer some healing and comfort to this family, and help them with the nearly insurmountable bills incurred because of this accident.
Again-I can not even imagine.
My heartfelt sympathies to all involved in this tragedy.
The post from Debby is included below:

Glitter, my blue roan mare, and Bunny, the white pony, broke out of their corral through the round hay bale holder 12:00 am 11-15-13. It was my birthday and I had just gotten home from a family celebration when I got a call from a friend up the road that one of my horses was hit by a truck on the highway. I ran out to my car and drove to find my beautiful blue roan mare dying beside the road. I only had about 1/2 a minute to say goodbye. He T-boned her at full speed, so she bled out fast and was very bloated. Everyone kept asking if she was pregnant. There were people and cops everywhere. It was so awful. I had sold her to a family with 6 children and they were making payments on her until the end of November when she would be theirs and they would take her home. My heart breaks for those children. They had been taking riding lessons on her for months and she was going to be theirs so soon. I know how devastated the entire family will be. We do not have this kind of insurance, so we will be paying for a new truck because it was totaled. His engine was on his front seat. Thank God he was unhurt. My beautiful sweet Glitter was laying on the side of the road steaming in the damp air. I sat on the ground beside her and covered her with tears. Everyone thought she was bleeding in the dark. I know the pony is the one who took them in that direction down to the highway. I do not even know why they left the property. There is plenty of grass and they know the property and the other horses here. We've had a big bear hanging around, and I'm afraid that may be what drove them off. The man never saw her until he hit her. He said he never even hit the brakes until after impact. She was almost totally invisible in the dark. I would always look for her in her pasture where we came home at night and she was impossible to see without a flashlight. Please pray for the children to heal quickly. Please pray that Jim and I can somehow manage to come up with that kind of money.
Jim and one of our beloved neighbors buried that beautiful girl. Our neighbor has a backhoe and big tractor. He brought her home for us and buried her for us.  God bless him for the help. He's been a God send. Please keep us all in your prayers.
