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.
