    The fact is, we just don't know. But it is certainly possible to rupture, tear, or dissect a vessel without any pre-existing, visible bulging aneurysm. The defect can be microscopic. Imaging is very, very difficult in horses for so many reasons, but it would be an extremely fruitful place to start, IMO.

    If the defect is microscopic, who's to say it isn't from prior parasite damage?

    That is solidly on the list of possibilities, although I'm told this is seen much less commonly in the days of modern dewormers. The necropsy findings, I'm also told, are very distinct between verminous arteritis and cystic medial necrosis. (which is the histopathological common denominator in most aneurysm/rupture cases I've read about in the available literature)

    Actually, I don't think so- we'd be saying how sad it is, or something like that. But- it would not involve a jump, going at speed, in front of thousands (many horse lovers, but not many that fully understand some of what we are talking about on these threads...) risking a human life.

    I realize that sounds cruel, but I do think it would be different. IMO, as sad, but from a different perspective.

    Thanks, DW for all the great info....

    Posted on another thread; Lucinda Green's horse Wideawake died while awaiting their victory lap after winning Badminton in 1976. Do we ban Victory laps?
