I am so sorry. May she and her foal be running side by side in the lush meadows above. So many things happen that are out of our control. You did everything you could.

I'm so sorry! :( If it was me looking at that mare I would have thought she was just in the days before birth. Mares are always uncomfortable and antsy around that time. I'm sure many of us would have missed it.

She was overweight and the vet I had didnt seem to experienced with mini's. Last week she ran fever and started laying down and getting up, biting stomach, and pawing. The vet came out and gave her pain shot and ran a tube in her nose to her stomach for dehydration. She was given bute and batamine. After vet left she ran to the back of her stall and wanted to stay there, she pawed and pawed. I never could get her to drink or eat hardly. She did have a craving for her mineral salt. I tried walking her and she seemed to be doing ok but not her best. She only nibbled on hay and drank very little. I called vet daily. Yesterday, her temp went to 104.8 , she kept standing by wall pawing and and a few hours later she would just fall down and get up. She also had diarreah. I called vet twice and told him He said its just baby making her uncomfortable and to give her batamine. He stated he would come out next day if needed and hydrate her again.. All the rest of day I sat with my little horse, she laid her head in my lap and was breathing heavily.I knew something was wrong, She hadnt touched water at all or even gatorade. Again she did crave her mineral salt. I called another vet and they said it would be 2 days before they could come out. I sat with molly all night. It was about 5am and i decided to go to restroom. When i returned she was dead, I was gone 20 min at most. The vet never came back out , he just said he was sorry that she died. I hate i lost the baby and Molly, I never dreamed this would happen.
