    So sorry to hear about your sweet angel filly. Hope your mare is doing ok, you said you had sold her,right? LW is just so horrible-a friend had one a few years back,& their mare fostered another friends' filly when the mare died because of foaling complications. That was a lot easier than all the bottle feedings!

    Awe this is so heartbreaking :( I can't even imagine how you feel, I'm very very sorry for your loss. Maybe because mom and dad were so beautiful they pulled a little angel right out of the sky and she got snatched back as soon as someone up there noticed. She was truly a little white angel, all she was missing was the halo.

    ...and weefoal, healthy white foals are caused by the sabino gene. White that comes from frame is always lethal.
    I wonder how many double dilutes were put down thinking they were LW

    LMPQH - I doubt any would be put down. There are color differences, beyond that you wouldn't put the foal down as soon as it came out and was light colored, generally I would imagine most breeders would either have a vet confirm before euthanasia, or see signs or LW with the foal showing signs of discomfort.

    Poco, sorry for your loss. I firstly wish people could be trusted, and secondly hope that someone who has visited this thread has learned that you have to make sure, to avoid tragedy.
