Lost a foal :(
My mini mare Diva wasn't doing well, Thurs she couldn't walk right ect, vet came out, neurological problem, typing on my phone so wont get into it but
Other than a lack of eating and looking like she felt bad, Diva had been doing much better, breathing and walking improved.
This morning (313 days pregnant) she started aborting her foal (Yesterday I had a feeling she would) and it was a bad dystocia, just an ear seen, went in and it was upside down on top of the poll coming first. Despite my efforts and Craig's help, I couldn't reposition the foal, so we walked her in turns to prevent contractions while waiting for the vet. It was NOT easy, but he managed to get the front legs, then eventually the head, and delivered a beautiful pinto filly, upside down.
This was done on the driveway, and Diva laid there for awhile, exhausted. A neighbor walked by and I'm sure he thought she was dead. After a rest we took her back ro her stall, she ate a watered pellet and had some water. Now we're waiting for her to pass the placenta, she will get an oxytocin shot soon if she still hasn't.
The good news is while walking waiting for the vet, she walked normal, so hopefully she will recover fine.
