Contessa Riding Centre

Ella (Arabella), the oldest foal of Marrieter, who had 3 Arab foals at Contessa Riding Centre, was put to sleep at the age of 30. Ella tryed to eat some hay earlier today but blood just ended up on it. She had a big lumb in her mouth that we all hoped was nothing, but sadly it was serious. Later we heard the gun shot and cringed as she was dragged away.

Um, have you never heard of eunthunization? Shooting horses isn't really legal these days. The fact that she was 'shot and dragged away' is very morbid. :/

Thats it? Where is the rest of the story???? They should have put her to sleep the humane way not shoot her with a gun and drag her away!!

Way too short to be an article. I'm guessing you just posted a "quickie" for sympathy. Sorry the horse got a tumor, but that's the complete hill billy, inhumane, and illegal way of doing things. Uncle Ed can't afford for euthanization, so decides to shoot her in the head and drag the poor mare away. Very disappointed in this. That poor mare deserved at least a dignified ending.

What is wrong with people? How could they just shoot the animal and forget all about her, like she is a piece of trash. That is animal cruelty. I am tearing up just think about how that poor horse lost her life.

that is really sad! they should have euthanased her though it is much nicer and it would have been better if you could have included more info about the horse and the condition of the story.

Sorry to read about the horse, as for putting a animal down via gun shot it isn't illegal in some states. Some people may want to take into consideration each country is different and we don't know the full story behind what happen to this little mare. I've posted article on here before and had wait for it to be proof read by the owner in order for it to be posted. So vets don't offer to put a animal to sleep for free, I've got a friend of mine who's dog had contracted rabies and he wound up shooting the dog because it was too dangerous to be handled.

Again sorry to read about the horse at least she isn't hurting anymore.

Slip off the tongue...that's so cute. ^^ Sweetie, there's such a thing called "vets", who use a needle to quietly put the horse to sleep. If you are going to own horses, you need to know about putting them down. Research. I do not think it was a "slip off the tongue" when you're typing, AND you said you guys heard a gun shot. I'm pretty sure you know what that is.

In a cruel manner, might I add. If you heard a gun shot, then she was shot. You can't begin changing the story, dear.

its just a way of putting it i was told she was put down and thats all i am sorry that i put it that way it was as i said a slip off the tongue, an expresssion. i don't know how she was put down but normaly i guess, as i said i don't know loads about putting down i just assumed it was the normal thing to do sorry.

I'm being horrid? Nice one, sweeties. Shooting a horse IS a horrid way to put it down, rather than the calm injection.

I really dislike it when people always go back on their words as an excuse. If you're writing an article, don't type things up that are wrong or didn't actually happen. Simple as that.
