Sad News

For a very long time, Daughter has wanted to breed her sweet, athletic Warmblood mare, Tango.

(There are a couple  additional photos of Tango on my sidebar.)
Now that we have our own farm, it was finally feasible to breed her.
Daughter did a lot of research and chose this beautiful up and coming stallion in Pennsylvania to be the sire.  He is appropriately named “Amazing.”

The artificial insemination “took” on the first attempt and we were very excited at the prospect of  Tango delivering her first foal next April.
All previous vet checks and sonograms in the last couple months revealed Tango was doing well and the pregnancy was progressing normally.  Sadly though, at Tango’s 90 day sonogram earlier this week, it was evident that Tango has miscarried.  :(
At this point, it is rather late in the season to try again so a second attempt to breed Tango to Amazing is planned for early 2011.

Oh Shari, how very sad. I know your daughter must be disappointed. Hopefully things will go better next year.
