I hoped I would come here tonight and see better news...I'm sorry she's not doing better yet, and I will keep hoping for the best for you, her and her unborn baby.

I hope she gets better really quick! This is so sad that she is sick. Poor girl. I hope she pulls through this!

I'm about 95% sure she won't make it to the morning. I spent over 3 hrs pumping her with fluids and then turned her loose in her small barn. She doesn't seem to know where her feet are all of a sudden and can barely walk, her gums/tongue/nose is purple, her tongue is hanging out now, and she's wobbling all over and can't hardly stand on her own.

I've only had her 2 weeks and was SOOO excited about a foal. Now I'm going to lose them both.

Perhaps she got too much fluid at one time? That can cause pulmonary edema (fluid build up in the lungs...) Either way, I am very sorry about what is happening...maybe you can have your vet, or a vet nearby, so you can atleast get the baby out if she seems to get to the point of no return? Baby may be too early, but maybe not...he may have a chance.

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry this is happening. I hope they both pull through the night.
Don't give up hope! She can pull through it!
Has your vet been out tonight? Maybe you should call him?

The vet has been out and I also called him. He wants to give
Her the night and see how she is in the morning :( I'm not feeling very positive anymore at all. Headed to bed now. Oh yea now they think it's some toxins disrupting the stomach lining or something to that effect.

Oh sweetheart, I'm so sorry.... I've been thinking... I know Potomac was ruled out, but could it possibly be another form of Colitis? Depending on how long ago you bought her, and how far away her old barn was, do you think it could be a big enough change in plants and roughage in the pasture to change the bacteria in her intestine? If this is the case, I know theres no magical cure. But, one [possibly] helpful solution I was told today at the barn is to mix the manure of a healthy horse, into a bucket and water, and give it to her through a nose tube. Considering the healthy horse obviously has the correct bacteria in its digestive tract this could help to bring the bacterial balance back to normal. I've also heard of the use of yogurt, although I haven't heard anything serious about that, just shadowy mentions.

Also, I found this. Merck Veterinary Manual its a link to the Merck Vet Manual, has quite a bit on intestinal issues. It may help.

I really hope she makes it through the night. My hopes and prayers are with you, you're mare, and the unborn baby.

Thanks for the help and prayers. She didn't make it.
