Ummmm, correct me if Im wrong, but if her last breeding was May 14th, then she's due in April 19, .. based on 340 day pregnancy

This is what I was thinking, lol, as horses have a gestation period of 11 months, not 12, and can foal as early as 320 days (this is the safe zone)

Just pointing out the above because she seems to be bigger than due in late may IMO....
And can the foal (previous foal) be lethal white AND the same color as this mare??? I didn't think so, so Im just asking because Im definitely not an expert on it...

Yeah, if she was last bred May, she will be due in April. Also, if the still-born foal had the same colouring has her, I don't know if that was Lethal White. Lethal White foals, as the name implies, are born completely or almost completely white (picture below). At least that is the impression I was under. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, or if it is possible for them to be born with normal colour patterns.

Yeah your right Got my figures messed up.
That is the impression I was under too on the lethal white

I did a little bit of research on lethal white foals a while ago, as I was very curious to know how to avoid and stuff, and everything I read said that a foal with lethal white syndrome is almost all white, it can have dark eyes, and dark parts, or can look like a cremello or perlino, but it doesn't have any patterns, or anything. That is just what I got from the research, I am not sure it is entirely true... so from what I read, I think it was you just had a still born foal... not a lethal white.

Thank you for the information. It was her first and she foaled in the pasture with the rest of the horses. I am not saying that the other horses did anything but there is always that chance.
The reason we did not put her in the barn is she does not do well when kept in a stall. This time we have it fixed where she can go out into a small paddock or she can go into the stall and she is right beside the house, so she can be watched more closely.
She had the still born after I had left and before the breeder got back home only an hour between when I left and she got there.
When I left she was fine standing in the shade with all the other horses.

She's beautiful! Can't wait to see the baby

If the stillborn foal looked like like her, then it was not a lethal white. Something else went wrong in the foals development or during the delivery process to cause a stillborn. But its not because of LWO. Those foals are white.
