Lost foal!

Well, I posted on baby bumps that 1 of my mares lost her foal. The vet came this morning and believes it was a stillborn. They took the foals body with them for some test and did some cultures on Dutchess. We have her separated from the other horse especially the other 2 mares in foal. Have her in a round pen we put together just outside the back door so I can keep an eye on her. She is mourning I think. This is her 2nd foal to be stillborn and last time they couldn't find any reason as to why. I stayed up most the night sitting on the back porch talking to her. I know that may sound silly to some but she is one of my babies and I feel for her. As for my other 2 mares they were checked and vet now believes they are due sooner than we thought, before end of April. Trixie the pally has already dropped, lost her plug,waxing up and very restless. Divinity has not dropped just yet but is very tender and relaxed in the tail and I think she'll be waxing soon as well. I'll get some pictures posted soon. I took some while vet was here, but now waiting for farrier

So sorry to hear that! May I ask how old the mare is? Was she on the same diet and exercise program as the others?

How sad :( HUGS to you and your mare. Check her pasture. I know their are weeds/plants that can cause this, but I can not remember the name.

I'm so sorry for your loss! I hope your vet can find the cause and hopefully fix it, for nice, healthy foals born in the future!

Thanks everyone! We kept the foal near her pen til the vet came and when they took it she was neighing out. Broke my heart! I'm going to keep her in the pen closest to the house for at least the next 2 weeks. Vet will be back on Monday!
Lilruf-she is 7 almost 8 and yes same diet and exercise as the others. She has had a hard time taking and carrying a foal safely to full term twice now (this wasn't a planned breeding). She is going to be retired and just kept as a riding horse for my nieces and nephew and the neighbors kids. She has always had an awesome sweet bombproof disposition so she will be put to good use I just think a brood is not her job here anymore. So I just going to have to split my nights between foal watch and keeping an eye on her (checking temp,swelling and making sure she doesn't colic or become lethargic on us).
