It is with much sadness and tears that I have learnt that my beautiful Arella was put to sleep yesterday due to abdominal issues. I am still in such shock over the loss of this beautiful mare with all the potential & world at her feet. I am so proud of the mare that she developed into and I am so proud to have bred such a gorgeous filly. Rest in peace my girl - taken way too young :( (04/01/2009 to 10/10/2012)  My heart goes out to Jenny who had to make this heart breaking decission xx
