Enreina & Eight Belles

Enreina & Eight Belles
Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
One of our Stablemate foals. The horse racing world lost another filly today. Eight Belles broke down after finishing second in the Kentucky Derby. She had broken both of her front ankles and was put down on the track. We are all deeply saddened by the recent deaths there and at the Rolex Three Day Event last weekend.

As a fellow horse owner and Horse Lover, I cannot even think about this it saddens me so - Horses legs and hooves are so fragile and easily injured - but this this just sickening, at least they did not let her suffer.
