In all my years I've had 1, this past year. I went out to feed and my old mare didn't come up and neither did the boarder's gelding. I went looking and poor old mare had somehow cut her foreleg to the bone, full length, and WIDE. She could barely 3 legged walk. She was also foundered and had severe rotation and dropped coffin bone in the other leg so the outcome was going to be inevitable. Somehow, I don't quite know how or who, in the excitement of getting her to the trailer and buting her up so she could walk onto the trailer, and taking her to the vet for euthanasia, someone left a couple of gates open and my stallion found 'em.
Tiara was born Feb 16 and is an adorable little 1/2 arab, thankfully I own the mother too so didn't have to explain to anyone what happened and she can live here til she's trained up and ready for a new owner. Or she can just stay, she's a cute & sweet little thing.
