Ohh thats no nice for our Queen but am sure she will be at the closing ceremony .
As for me , just wanted to share this sad news with you all .. Last Olympics in Pekin, France had a slendid mare named Ismène du Temple . She has been the only one to do a non -fault ( eventing ) , was like 40 cecius degrees and omg she was splendid !! our last horse as all others were injured ..Ismène passed 15 days ago with her baby ( pregnancy ) . there was a thunderstorm and the owners ( who are my friends ) found her laying in her shelter the next morning next to a pony .. she had died of an open fracture .. alone !! Ismène had just retired & my friends are very very down and it will take time for them to recover . RIP my dear Ismène, at least you had already given 2 lovely foals ( artificial insemination ) to your Mum and Dad , may your foalies remind them of your magnificence . I Love You Ismène , you will never be forgotten .XXXXX
ps : as for the lil story .. Ismène was discovered by a coach from the french team and they had offered the price of a house to buy her but my friend said she had no house but would keep Ismène with her whislt accepting her to be prepared for great events like the Olympics and Badminton .. Ismène has worked all her life and didn't even spend a full year at her owners after she had retired .. so sad ! Life can be so " injuste "
