I know, my mom and I were both shocked that she would do that. Especially when the contract says anything that happens to the filly past her weaning date does not void the purchase. We'd have had to deal with possible problems that filly would have life long, bless her heart, and instead she is going to give us this handsome little fella AND make sure the filly has a forever home where she was born and never have to be passed from person to person because of her injury, like so many horses are.
Oh and my mom named him Rua Prionsa, which is Gaelic for "red prince" :)
