Blue Hors Matine Euthanized

Postby goldendryad » Mon Jan 25, 2010 2:35 pm

Heard some sad news today, Blue Hors Matine, the young grey mare who excited the dressage world at the WEG was euthanized after being injured in her paddock. :x What a terrible loss for the dressage world, like so many others I was delighted watching her dance across the screen and her performance got me excited about the sport.

Below is a link to the story:

It is sad. She was a nice mare to watch and seemed to really have heart to give it all she did.
Being a mom is a wonderful job... being mom to a horse crazy lil boy means combining two things i adore!!!

Winter makes you appreciate mud in the spring!

Oh, that's some sad news.

They are saying now that she wasn't in foal, but due to be bred this spring. They had wanted to give her some time away from all the vets that had been poking at her since she injured herself on the trailer so were just letting her play in the field and be a horse for a while before breeding her. Such a shame, she was very special.
