Lots of prayers! Terribly tragic, don't even know what to say...
Having lost two mares foaling I know the pain. Hopefully, surely, there is a VERY special place in Heaven for our departed.

Thank you guys, her owner is heart broken, as are we all. I went over there numerous times just to see the momma to be
She posted an update this morning.

She is stable right now, as of this am they are waiting to get her white blood cell count up so they can repair her colon and rectum which both tore badly during birth, and to make sure nothing else has been damaged. She lost half of her blood supply yesterday so its taking some work on her part. What a tough lady!

:( so sad. I have so many friends who own stud farms and breed their horses. I'm sure they take in all the considerations and possibilties of their horses having something like this happen but still, I dont think I could do it without worrying through the horses whole pregnancy. so much chance. Rest in peace little foal, heaven needed you back far too soon :(

Just got an update that the mare, Tina is doing better every minute and even got to go outside for a little bit. I don't know if they did her surgery yet or not tho.

I feel for the mare and the owner, the foal knew nothing of a life and I hope its suffering was minimal.

Do you guys have birthing/foaling centres over there?

We use a birthing centre here where the sew magnets into the vagina of the mare so that when the foal breaks the contacts a phone call to a cell phone or a radio signal to a reciever to alert them of the birth.

I know exactly whats being thought now, "it costs too much to use one of these centres!!!", and yes it does cost, but we factor this cost into the total breeding costs for the mare, if I can afford the studd fees for a popular stallion, the vet costs, the stabling, the keep of my mare at home then I can afford the birthing centre!! I mean would you want to spend €3,000 ($4,500) on 1 straw(0.25ml to be exact) of Mr. Blue(retro jumping stallion), then possibly another €350 ($475) on insemination and stabling fees at the breeding centre, it still costs me at least €1000 ($1500) to keep my mare a year at home, and there are the rest of the costs too but for another time, for me the birhting centre makes sense, proffesionals dedicated to making sure it does not go wrong.

What do others think?

teaching your horse manners costs nothing and lasts a lifetime.

wranglerman.. your description made me wince!

It's a smart idea with good intent but I would not do that if I were into breeding.

Glad she's doing better.. keep updating us Rachel. We're pulling for momma!
