I'm excited about the Frosted x Hystericalady filly and the Fort Larned x Miss Isella colt. :)

The beautiful filly by California Chrome out of Colerful Bride who is The People's Horse foal had a paddock accident last night. It's been reported on the California Chrome's Foals Facebook page that they had to remove one of the filly's eyes. Heartbroken over this.

Also, Via Veneto's beautiful filly who is being raised by nurse mare, Rosie, has a big bandage around her neck the last couple of days.

Praying for both these sweet fillies.

That's terrible,and we all know how bad a paddock accident can be; it's how we lost Z Princess. At least she should recover from the injury, and she could still be a good racehorse; just ask Patch. ;)

If true, it's a shame but could be a lot worse, at least she is alive and should be fine.

It's true. The People's Horse members received an email with information from the vet.

sorry to hear about Colerful Bride's filly, but thank goodness for small mercies, hoping she makes a quick and uncomplicated recovery.
I was wondering, Ridan do they also update you on the two other mares bred to CC that were the people's horse's candidates?

Oh that's too bad about the Colorful Bride filly. Just wish we could bubblewrap them when they go out to play. They're a lot more fragile than they look. Sad for Taylor Made too.

Whoever runs The People's Horse is pretty erratic about keeping members up to date. Some members got emails about the filly's injury and some didn't. I found out about it because I'm a member of the California Chrome's Foals Facebook page. That's where I also found out that some people had received emails from TPH, apparently with a video from the vet explaining the injury and why the eye had to be removed. I have not seen the video, but others have said it is not a kick injury. Something punctured the eye at an angle and turned, destroying the lens.

Thank you for sharing MSD I don't think this one has been posted yet! She seems confident like Beholder and Mendy apparently were at that age. I've got big dreams for this little gal... (as I still do for Mendelssohn!)

Leslie's Lady has a yearling MdO colt, but it appears she didn't have a foal between the MdO and Mendelssohn.
I wonder if Clarkland will send the MdO colt to the sales? Considering how talented her offspring have been, I wouldn't be surprised if he beats his half-bro's sales price, so long as his conformation is OK.
ETA: I found this nice Bloodhorse article from last year, with lots of photos of LL and her good-looking MdO colt.

Vickie—

The ability to overcome obstacles has always been at the heart of The People’s Horse project. When we started more than two years ago, traveling around on pick up trucks with our plastic horse to gather support for a collective foal, we knew that only an unshakeable belief in our long shot dream would push us forward. And now, with hundreds of members and a foal in the barn, that belief has evolved into reality. Together, we’ve proven that with grit, perseverance and a strong community, the impossible can be achieved.

The journey of The People's Horse has never been linear, and those forks in the road have become chapters in this ever evolving story. This week, our growing community faces another test, and perhaps the most challenging of all. We are saddened to report that sometime during the early morning hours of Monday May 14th, a most unfortunate accident transpired. We do not yet know the cause of this accident - and perhaps might never know - though we can report here and with a heavy heart that grazing in the pasture with her mother, The People’s Horse suffered a laceration to her right eye, and a cut so severe her eye had to be removed.

We spoke to Dr. Claire Latimer, the veterinary ophthalmologist that performed the emergency surgery on our foal late yesterday, and wanted to share an audio recording of our conversation with her to bring you up to speed on this unfortunate incident.

In all the recent interviews done with them this spring they stated they were prepping him for the sales and intending on selling him. They were going to sell any colt she might produce and retain any fillies. So they'll keep the American Pharoah daughter... I don't think they've announced any plans to breed her back yet though? They were in wait and see mode but I suspected even before she was born they might stop there since they got what they wanted.

Interesting that they actually call the left eye the "rail eye" but that makes sense (at least for counter-clockwise racing)... it seems like it's one of those freak things. The lack of outright/blatant evidence of a kick or whatnot makes it a bit of a puzzle but it's happened to her so young, I bet she adapts very quickly.

Horses, man. Glad she's got the best care. <3

Via Veneto's beautiful filly still has a large bandage around her neck several days after they first put it on her. I wonder why. Outwardly she seems healthy. Does anyone have any idea why the bandage? Here is a screen capture I took from the live feed tonight. She was busy dealing with an itch, lol.

I’ve only ever seen foals wear those bandages around their necks when they have catheters. Wonder if her blood work was off and she needed some antibiotics.

Yesterday(or possibly the day before) I saw 2 people administering 2 syringes into her, near the neck bandage thingy. They were in her stall but the foal was partially outside of video range. The man that administered them tossed each used syringe into a small pail when he was done. Someone else was holding the foal still. Once both syringe were administered, both people left the stall and the guy took the pail with him, which has the 2 used syringes.

Uh oh that sounds like colic. I hope she’s ok!
