Sometimes things just don't work out. We were all routing for you guys. Are you going to send her for an autopsy to figure out what it was for possible future happenings?
We're all here for you sweety. I'm sorry to hear about your loss.
No, it obviously wasn't contagious. Couldn't have been the water or the pasture since my stallion was fine. I think it was Just a freak sickness that spiraled out of control too fast. I'm pretty heartbroken. Posted via Mobile Device
I can only imagine how you feel. We recently found out that one of our horses has a problem eating alfalfa - and it nearly killed him. He looked like a walking scarecrow. He's getting better now - but his mother apparently had the same problem. We kept increasing her feed (including the alfalfa pellets) and she kept getting skinnier. Vet couldn't figure out what was wrong and she finally passed away - rather suddenly - she was up and around and eating that morning and gone that evening. We are heartsick to think her death was entirely preventable, had we known.
I wouldn't wish that sorrow on anyone, and I am so sorry you had to go through it.
All I can say, as terrible as it may sounds, is I thank God it wasn't my stallion. I would be totally devastated
If something happened to him. At least I know I did everything I could to save her. Posted via Mobile Device
I am so sorry. I know you have worked so hard to keep her alive, and you can feel good about that part of this at least.
Didn't you just get her? I wonder if perhaps she ate something at the other place and this has been coming on slowly, perhaps she ate something or got something into her system and stress of the baby these last weeks was just something her body couldn't handle. Perhaps even a tumor or cancer in her stomach that was acute.
Again, I am so sorry for you.
