    I had a phone call from Silly Mommy last night, with very sad news.
    Sabra was at a show, and had a hysterical call from her farm manager.. her beautiful brood mare Annie, mother of Drew (Yak), had dropped dead in her paddock.
    dear Sabra, Annie has left you a legacy in your beautiful Drew, and what a wonderful legacy that is.
    She will live on in him, and in all his beautiful babies to come...
    take care, girl
    and hugs and tears for beautiful Annie on her way...

    Silly Mommy, I am so sad for you. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif

    Loving animals can be so hard, my thoughts are with you as you hug Drew and watch your foals.

    Oh Silly Mommy, our deep condolences. Please give the Yak a hug and a carrot from us when you get home. And know we all hold you in our hearts.

    That's sad. At least you have her son, like I have my favorite mare's filly (now 2) when something like that happens.

    Oh dear.

    I am so very very sorry, Silly Mommy. You must be just devastated.

    All I can think of at this moment is how unfair life is at times. And the frustration, disappointment and sadness are sometimes so terribly overwhelming.

    I'm working through a disappointment of my own at the moment, so I can understand perhaps a fraction of what you're going through. But to get this news like this is just ...

    I don't know, it just makes me want to go to bed and not get out. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif All I can say to try and help is 'this too shall pass.' It will pass ever so slowly, but it will pass.

    You are a wonderful wonderful person. Try and keep your spirits up and share your memories here if it helps. You do know we're all behind you.

    Huge huge HUGS sent to you.

    Sabra,

    I am just heart broken. I know how much you loved sweet Annie and what she meant to you. Go and have a good cry on sweet Drew.

    XOXO
