That is so strange. Although, it looks opposite of the mare I know. She's having a problem dragging her back leg. Hope she gets better soon!!

Well it has been a week since I put my wonderful mare down. I got the results back. Frist she had malformed hip sockets like in dogs with hip dysplasia. She also had chronic EPM. The nerve that connects the back legs to the central stem was so damaged the messages to and from was cut off. I asked her if there was nothing I could do to help her and she said no. She was only going to get worse. There was no live protozoa’s just a lot of scare tissue. It still hurts that I only had 6mo with an awesome horse like Ciderhouse. I loved her with all my heart and did everything I know I could have. May your sprit live on through April. I also came up will a reg. Name for April first choice is Sweet April Cider. Cider please know that I love you very much and miss you every day. May you run free in that big pasture in the sky.

UGH...my heart breaks for you!! I am so so sorry!! That is devastating. Did the previous owners mention any health problems to you? Sounds like your baby is going to have some big shoes to fill! Were you able to wean her first?

She had gone down the day before we put her down and was very slow to get up. So we put April in the stall next to mom. She still calls for her at times but she is put out with her big sister and a mare I just got almost 3 weeks ago. But no she was not weaned before we had to put her mamma down. The previouse owners had no clue that she was ill.

Well, at least April has friends and others to grow up with and learn from. I am so sorry. This is just so sad. You made the right call though.
