View Full Version : Very Sad - Come What May

2nd February 2012, 07:05 PM
Very sad to read yesterday that probably one of the most prolific winning mares in the small NCT circuit passed away yesterday. Come What May had been to HOYs, RIHS and won so much all over the country. And she moved like s**t off a shovel. Lol.

She had been retired from the show ring this year, after winning Champion Broodmare and her veteran class at CHAPS Champs in September, to be a broodmare and hopefully pass on some of her magic to some new blood.

I'm not close with her owners but they are faces we always see at shows and often end up having lengthy chats with outside of the ring. And I am always threatening to steal their young native stallion who has come out under saddle this year. They are lovely people and adore their horses.

I don't know how she died yet, but the coloured showing community is in complete shock. She will be a huge loss and it's such a shame that she won't be able to enjoy her retirement :( RIP May May, you were a very special girly and one of the only mares that could give those big boys a real run for their money!
