    If you're talking about the polo horses. It was on the national news this morning. So far they don't know what happened. Poisoning?

    Definately sounds like poisoning to me.
    Weather deliberately or something somehow got into the feed.
    Very awful and scarey!

    What little I saw. Some comment about bad steriod injections? I saw it real briefly on The Today show but haven't heard anything else. and even that comment sounded like they were guessing so far. No one knows what happened so far.

    I hadnt even thought poisoning. That is sick. To do something like that to innocent animals. Man humans stink sometimes

    Twins- You had me worried yesterday BTW.

    Oh, How did I do that?
    If you mean the atv hasn't moved, its because I lost the key!! LOL!![​IMG] My hubby is sooooo pleased with me.[​IMG]
    Now I am trying to figure out how to unhook a full manure cart and re attach it to another atv, then clean my stalls.
    By poisoning I didn't mean that someone had to do it on purpose. Could have been tainted food, meds or something of that sort as well.
    We will see what they come up with.

    I just read that they ruled out any infections so the games will resume on Wednesday. They are thinking it was something in their feed, supplements or vitamins OR the combination of all of them caused a toxic reaction [​IMG]
