Amber's Miniature Horses
Amber had started a breeding program for miniature horses. She bought Patty and Buttercup two mares, and Poe, a champion stallion.
Both mares were bred to foal in spring of 2013. The first horses to die from the poison were the smallest.
All the minis were killed, and their unborn foals.
Poe was a champion stallion, ten years old. He was loving, and adorable.
He was the first to die from the poison on March 21, 2013, and his body was taken to the state lab for a necropsy.
They confirmed the symptoms of poisoning.
We miss him.
Patti was an adorable mini, with a perky, mischievous spirit.
She was feisty for any adult to handle, but when a child took her lead, she was perfect.
She was in foal when she died on March 22, 2013.
Buttercup was only with us for one year. She was adorable and calm. She died on March 22, 2013.
