makes me shake my head

So I came across this link today. Makes me shake my head and I feel for this mare. Basically her owners thought that they could breed her one more time and the mare ended up blowing out tendons. It is graphic, I don't want to really start any controversy here just thought Id share. I personally wouldn't have done what they did...

It seems they did do the research and I would geuss they loved the mare... That is such a shame. I'm glad the baby made it but... I feel so bad for the mare...

What a situation...*shakes head in agreement*

Thanks for sharing it. Its good to see what a simple decision on the part of a human can do sometimes. I applaude them for going to the lengths that they did. It was very interesting.

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.

Hindsite is definitely 20/20. I do feel sorry for the poor mare.
