Was also watching.  Could not believe it.  Prayers sent up immediately for this beautiful horse and for Mandella and others who love him.

Not good, prayers needed!:(

Mandella said Geaux Rocket Ride has condylar fracture that broke through skin. While no sesamoid fracture, ligaments are stretched. Plan is for arthrodesis Sunday. "It’s going to be a delicate situation, it’s going to be lucky to make it, but we’re going to do everything we can."

This is heartbreaking.  Miracles do happen so we pray for that for Geaux Rocket Ride.  I love the Candy Rides.
