Very, very sad news



Sour's foal was unfortunately born prematurely at 1:00 pm this afternoon. A stillborn, it didn't even get a chance to see the world before he was taken from is. The reason for his early birth and death is unknown, but the vets believe that the fluid that provided nutrience to him dried up a few weeks ago, leaving him to starve. We are all devestated by this, and Sour has become depressed- seeming to know just what happened. A young mother, she still attempted to lick it and nudge it to it's feet- until we removed her. The foal was a beautiful bay painted colt with inversed medicine hat markings and a beautiful face. We decided to call him Keagen, and he was buried in the pasture, facing his mother. We will miss Keagen, even though we never did really get to meet him, and I only hope that he will be happy wherever he went, and that Sour can cope with his loss.

r.i.p keagen, I'm sorry we never got to introduce ourselves to you.

*hugs* So sorry for your loss :(

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

thats what I thought too, but the vet doesn't think so. He ran some tests before we buried Keagen, so hopefully that will do something. Poor girl <3
