Madge broke her leg in the field today and had to be put down. Absolutely gutted.
I really connected with her, always have done and always wanted to breed a foal from her. Third time lucky we got her in foal and she was happy. I was happy, we were all looking forward to the adventure together…..
A freak slip in the field today and she shattered a hind leg; no dramatic fall just a slip at the wrong angle – completely gutted for Madge and the Hows. She was a very, very special horse. You can take all the care and precautions and still these freaky things happen – no rhyme or reason. Ground was fine, she had a friend, wasn’t out for long, in a paddock I could keep an eye on – just a freak thing.
