Sweetie had to put one of her retired broodmares down Monday. She was a former racehorse who spent seven or eight years on the track before being converted into a foal factory. She was a sweet mare who loooked (outwardly at least) to be in good condition for her age. She was having trouble breathing and had bloody discharge from her nostrils. The vet said that she had a collapsed lung and it was ify whether or not surgery would do her any good.

Damn shame. She was a good horse.
