    Default RIP-lost a sweet mare & baby-the C word

    A horse crazy teenager lost a loved horse today. Fine mare didnt make it thru surgery, and lost a lovely foal as well.

    I am so sorry. That is a horrible thing to go through at any age, let alone during the emotionally wraught teen years. I hate colic!

    Please let heartbroken teen that there are many folks here wrapping their arms around her. What a bitter lesson to learn at such a tender age: my heart goes out to her and her precious horses.

    Oh, so sad. I lost a very dear young mare on January 1st, and today I opened a package in the mail to find her braided tail -- U of F mailed it to me without me asking them too (what a nice thing to for them to do -- very appeciated). I have been very emotional today after opening that package and reading about this mare made me tear up again.

    Tell the little girl that we are thinking of her.

    I can't even imagine and I hope I never have to. My heart breaks for the young girl. Tell her my girls and I are very sorry to hear of this loss.
