    Unfortunately she started showing signs of colic late last night and I called a vet out immediately to have her put down before she began to suffer. He watched her for a while, tried an enema to see if she was indeed lethal, and confirmed. Apparently it was just not my year. Working on getting her moved to another farm today or tomorrow to prevent her from being bred back.

    So sorry for this sudden loss. How sad. Maybe this isn't the best time for you, so maybe someone else can please explain to me this ? I know next to nothing about breeding and genetics and this problem, that she was apparently born with. Would someone mind explaining to me.?

    Baby was totally angelic. Definietly too cute for this world.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. She was an adorable little girl. I did a report and powerpoint on OWLS in my biology class when we were studying genes. I was saddened from what I read in my research.

    Your little girl is now a beautiful little angel.

    Tiny - OLWS /frame is connected with the frame overo pattern. When a horse is homozygous (carrying two copies) of frame, they are born with minimal color (can have some color) and an incomplete digestive tract. There is something connected to the gene that causes frame that disrupts the formation of the digestive tract. Foals that are not humanly euthanized die a very painful death by 72 hours of age.
