RIP Emerald Afire AA

Emerald was not my horse but owned by a good friend of mine Debi Krieger of Krieger Equestrian Center, he was such a sweet stallion and will forever be missed.

As a yearling Emerald broke his leg while out playing in the pasture, they were able to save the leg but he has only been breeding sound. On Monday evening they had him out to breed a mare and his bad leg just gave out, the vet was there but nothing could be done... such a sad freak accident.

Here are a few pictures I took of Emerald last year, I was really looking forward to visiting him again this year and getting more pictures...

Here are some older pictures of Emerald.

Also here is a short Video of him, truely an amazing stallion.

He was 11 years old. Sadly didn't have a lot of foals, there are currently 5, 2 from this year and a few more on the way, I am hoping that the mares bred this year are in foal but won't know for a few more weeks. She had offered me a free breeding to him but I decided to wait tell next year, I'm really kicking myself now...

I am so sorry for you. I bet you miss him. He is stunning. Every bit the true Arabian.

He is absouletly stunning. I am so sorry. Sadly, stuff like that happens. He is very pretty but I am not sure why they didn't just no breed him anymore! I mean I would never breed a horse with a bad leg.

He'd never really shown any real signs of pain in the leg the times I had seen him, even after trotting around in the field and arena... and the vet had said he was breeding sound, I sure if Debi had known this would happen thing would have been done differently but what's done is done, he was an amazing horse and I am happy that he at least did have some foals.

I was one of the lucky ones to get a beautiful palomino foal by Emerald this year! You can see K Golden Afire at Krisean Performance Horses
