I just read where Highland Pride has retired due to a barn accident :'(.  What a shame as I was planning on breeding to him next yr. He was a very nice horse and my heart goes out to Rhi.

But,
Is this something that the database "spits" out and says "Hey, Your horse is retired or has died" ? 

I am sure I am not the only person curious about the retirement process. 
I know when they hit a certain age they die, is this what happened?
Do you receive a PM or a Stable Note that this has occurred?

From the FAQ

When will my stallion/mare retire?
All breeding horses have randomly generated retirement (and death) dates.

Stallions will be forced to retire at some point from age 10 to 20.

Broodmares will be forced to retire at some point from age 15 to 25.

All horses may die from age 15 to 25. If a horse is set to die at age 18 and retire at age 20, it will die (and "retire") at age 18.

Retirement ages may be changed during the course of a lifetime..if a horse is overtaxed by racing, s/he will retire sooner.

If a broodmare is set to retire before she has her last foal, the foal has a chance of being born premature, or if the mare dies too early (i.e. in October when the foal is due in March), the foal will die.

I have read that when I first started.

I was curious as to how you are informed of it.  Is there a Stable Note that says your horse had an accident or has died of old age or??

Yes.  That would be on the Stable Alerts thread in Announcements.
