Poisoned Polo Ponies
As sad as this story is, I thought you might want to read the latest information: Polo Ponies
My understanding is that it wasn't what was in the vitamin shots, but the amounts of one ingredient that killed the horses.
I saw my first polo ponies in action this summer and they were magnificent. Some of you may remember that I found out one of the polo ponies had been bred on Dahana Ranch in Hawaii.
Here are some polo ponies wading in the salt water,
just like Hoku on WILD HORSE ISLAND. Looks like a pretty fun summer job, doesn't it?

Mahalo for sharing this Mrs. Farley!by the way did you get my letter in the mail? =0)
That is such a sad story. I've been reading the articles in the newspaper and it is such a shame that so many wonderful horses were lost.
Really? one of the ones that died was from dahana ranch?
That is so sad.
And that is a cool picture. That would be an awesome job.
All of the polo ponies that died were from Brazil, but one of the horses in the first polo match I ever saw was from Dahana Ranch.
Sorry for the confusion.
