When you lose one to Blackleg, it is that fast, but there will be gas undert the hide that will crackle when you press on the skin, there is no cure, but you can help prevent it with annual vaccination.

You shoul have called a vet to do a Necropsy, and find out what she died of to prevent other animals from the same fate
