    I have some very sad news to relate.
    I had an email message from Silly Mommy today saying that her beautiful Princess Amanda has died.
    Sabra, my heart is breaking for you. You know you have my greatest affection and heartfelt sympathy.
    What a terrible year this has been.
    Warm hugs to you, my dear.

    I am so incredibly sorry. I have been following Amanda's wonderful story. I was scared to get emotionally involved with her as I lost a foal several years ago. Ten years later I am still so very sad, but I wouldn't have traded the time I spent with my colt for anything. My heart felt condolences go out to you and all those that Amanda touched. I hope you will be able to continue to feel her presence in your life.

    That is so sad... I'm so sorry, Silly Mommy! I wish there was anything we BBers could do to console your pain, though of course there isn't. All I can say is that I feel for you [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] {{{hugs}}}

    There is nothing that anyone can say that will take your pain away. Just know that they are in better hands where pain is something of the past that cannot get to them. Remember the good times, and try to just realize how lucky you were to have known her/loved her, and how lucky she was to have you. I lost one of mine at a young age, and I wouldn't have traded any moment that I spent with him(even those tough ones when he died) for the world. She was lucky to have such a wonderful mother. Now you have a little guardian angel who will always be in your heart.
    **HUG**again I know how hard this is for you.

    Here is my email to Gail:

    I lost my Princess Amanda this morning. I just got back from taking her to Cornell for necropsy. Feeling quite empty right now. The vet was coming back this am and we were going to decide then whether we were going to take(living) her - pros and cons of adding stress to her situation. I'll update with the necropsy results when I can. I needed to share, and you understand.

    What seemingly looked like a simple virus, obviously involved much more. I still don't know why...

    You have to be smarter than the horse, and since that will never happen, pretend you are.

    Oh Sabra, I am so very sorry for your loss.

    I can't imagine the shock and pain you must be experiencing right now and I wish there was something I could do to help you through this - and if there is absolutely anything that I can do, you must let me know.

    Again, my thoughts are with you. Big hugs to you.
