Lost the baby :'(
Yesterday Vintage foaled a beautiful colt. Rio's Reflection aka Beau was 47 days early and looked just like his daddy. Today she passed a small fetus so it has been confirmed that she was carrying twins. Sad thing is, I had her ultra sounded at 18 days and she did have twins, but when we checked her again the vet said she had reabsorbed one. I know people make mistakes but it's so hard not to be angry and sad those poor babies, especially Beau as the other one was no more than a few months old. He had a heart and a brain and little chin hairs and hair on his perfect little ears. He had two hind socks a little white on the back of his front hoof and a beautiful star. :'( I am so sad that I never got to meet my first foal.
Vintage however is doing good, gave her a bunch of apples and spent an hour grooming her, which she loves. We are keeping a close eye to make sure and I'm having the vet out asap to check her over.
Anyways sorry about the novel, just needed to get it out. I don't know how you guys cope with the regular breedings every year, this one had me really stressed but super excited.
Vint would have been a great mommy, poor thing. :(
You are a great champion. When you ran, the ground shook, the sky opened and mere mortals parted.
I love you Vinty, you'll always be my champion.
