    Wow,now that is some really unusual reading.
    That is the first time I have heard of this being done.

    Im curious too now about the small circles on the legs. That is too strange.

    Thanks for the post !

    I wonder were this investigation is going that they are doing this. Don't these owners have another gelding that was also "injected" but, survived?

    There is a video link off of this story link that goes to segment shot this afternoon at the farm:

    I think the article says that they had 2 horses which were both injected but recovered, and 3 that were injected and were put down. I hope someone gets arrested for this. Still hoping someone gets arrested for South Pacific's death (if he truly was injected w/ Bacteria) too!

    Still alot of questions about Alydar's "murder for insurance" theory too.

    Thanks for the update...even if the reporter did say back legs while the fronts were all bandaged up instead of injected the back of the front legs http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_confused.gif

    Thanks for the link...always amazed when these things work for me.

    If you saw the original areas on the horse's legs it definately looked like some kind of acid was applied. The tissue was completely dissolved away.

    I'm hoping you don't have to be a member to read it. Let me know if you can get to it.

    Looking at the picture I would say it was either some sort of acid or a vesicant chemotheraputic drug.

    Link worked....thanks!

    I am still very confused about why there is even a dispute over who gets the body....WHY would it EVER be the trainer who burries the body? Why was this issue not cleared up? Did I miss something? http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif

    I can not wait to hear the results and hope that this will lead to better closure for those involved or those that have been put in the position of being involved.

    I'm just wondering how they are going to "sort" out which horse is which. Meet Prince Charming was buried on top of Wicked. I will never understand why she did that.

    As gruesome as the photo was of the injury site, I now have a better appreciation of the horror those poor horses went through. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    I dearly hope some insight comes out of all of this. It's a classic unsolved "Who dunit."

    One of the articles said that Wicked and Meet Prince Charming were wearing things (coolers and halters, I assume) that make them easy to ID.

    Were all five owned by the same person? I read as many of the articles on the linked site as I could but didn't see it spelled out anywhere (in theory, I should be writing a book review right now http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif - but this is more interesting).

    Yup, I'm supposed to be writing something on a deadline, too, and yet, look where I am at nearly 11:00 pm.

    No, they were not all owned by the same person. I'll have to do a little research to figure it out, but the Lopez's owned at least one of the horses that was euthanized, the Jackson's had at least two. The Jackson's also own the horse that has recovered and is back in the show ring.

    The Jacksons owned Wicked and Cats Dont Dance (Cat recovered). Jane Burkhimer owned Kiss Me, who was put down. Dena owned Meet Prince Charming and Sassational,who also recovered.

    Wicked and Prince Charming were buried back to back...not one on top of the other. Their backs are together, next to each other.
