Lyric's Filly

5/24/15 - 5/27/15

 

 

This is Lyric's filly, who had such a short life. She is seen above at birth, and on her first and second days of life. She was beautiful and sweet. She came out of the womb a fighter, trying to stand after only about 10 minutes. Unfortunately, on day 3, we discovered she had a fever. So, we rushed her to the University Hospital, where they worked to save her life, but failed. Even though she had nursed enough and had her mother's antibodies, she couldn't fight off the bacteria that entered her body, probably right after birth. The vets said there was nothing we could've done, but we were shocked and devistated to have lost her. Although loss is a part of life and breeding, it is never easy.
