Gribaldi Dies At 18

Recommended Posts

a friend in Germany wrote me today to say that Gribaldi has died "he had a hole in his vein, maybe caused by high blood pressure and stress"

My friend was at his farewell/retirement performance just last week.

I hope they have a bunch of frozen semen, because it's probably now worth a fortune.

Apparently a ruptured blood vessel is much more common in horses than we have realized in the past. A friend's horse passed from supposedly the same thing several months ago, so I did a bit of research into it. It usually has no symptoms until it's too late to save the animal.

there is some frozen semen, how much I do not know...but you are correct it will be worth a pretty penny now!! The farm my friend is on has 2 horses out of Gribaldi, and 2 more foals are expected from him in the next few weeks. Those babies will probably be worth a fair amount as soon as they pop out of their dams!
