RIP Chocolatescotch

Sparkle & Doom Designs

Sad news, we found one of our ponies, Chocolatescotch, dead from unknown reasons. No trauma to the body beyond what the scavenger birds had done by the time we found her.  So we’re not sure what killed her.  Possibly she swallowed something that obstructed her airway, or some plant that poisoned her. Possibly a fast acting illness, as she didn’t seem sick at all.  Thank goodness Nora was mostly weaned.  Nora is doing fine healthwise, but of course, seems to be gloomy.  It’s only been a week (took me this long to feel up to blogging it. :/ )

Sparkle & Doom DesignsI love her curly baby hair and fuzzy legs.

RIP Chocolate. We’ll take care of your daughter.

    it’s so sad to hear of this. the only possible thing to do is a necropsy, which isn’t always successful in determining c.o.d. and is very costly…
    i know you will take veryvery good care of her baby…
    hugs, my dear, so sad…
