Young Filly Dies

On January ,2000 the Abaco wild horses lost a 1 1/2 year old filly, Enif. She was definitely gaited, and was turning in a magnificent mare. No members of Arkwild were present when she died, but eyewitnesses said that she mated with a large brown stallion. She was said to suffer a massive discharge, followed by heavy bleeding. She died shortly thereafter.

It is not known whether she was simply too young to mate or if she was suffering from some invisible pathology. When the preserve becomes a reality and the horses are under regular observation we hope that this sort of death won’t happen again.
