Rest In Peace, Gabriella.
When Sally came to the rescue she was pregnant.
All indications were that she was healthy. We kept her fed and safe as she grew to term.
Unfortunately, Ande went out to feed on the morning of April 23, 2010 and there lie Gabriella.
She'd been still-born in the night as sometimes happens.
Ande gently removed her from the other ponies to minimize their trauma.
Horses can get very anxious around death.
Gently and with great sadness to see such a beautiful animal gone, Ande laid Gabriella out for the rescue volunteers to see her and pay their respects.Sometimes we're just here to send them off with dignity.
