Aww Vida, I'm so sorry for your husbands and your loss of fancy. I'm a bit like Jazzy, I've kind of put off reading anything in this section, as it doesn't take a lot to bring tears to my eyes.

You've told Fancys story beautifully. She was a stunning looking horse. I'm so happy that she brought such joy to your lives, and I am sure she left this place knowing how happy and how loved she was.

((big hugs)) to both your husband and you. :)

your story made me cry. I am so sorry for your loss. I also have an HYPP positve horse although I have always known he has had this. In my opinion her death was at the fault of the breeder that sold Fancy to you. You should have been informed that this horse had HYPP. We have had our HYPP positive horse since he was a weanling and he is now 10 years old. It would have made a world of difference if you could have been monitoring her deit throughout her life. HYPP horses can live good long lives, I know of one that is 16 and he is still doing great.

I like some of the others have avoided this thread...It brought tears to my eyes and you told the story beautifully.

HYPP is a tragedy in the quarter horse world. I'm sorry you and Tony had to go through this.

RIP Fancy!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
