Awww, sorry about the filly, that is so sad & disapointing. When I read the part about her escaping with her previous owner who also had a stud, I knew at once why she escaped. Mares in heat will escape to be bred if given a chance.
OHMAIGAWD I am VERY sorry for your loss :( Hope your mare is doing well, I can't imagine what you both are going through...
She's up there running with the herd, looking down on mum and you <3
Rest in peace little filly... Did you name her? :)
I named her Dovahkiin (pronounced doh-vah-keen) and was going to call her "Dovah." It's from the computer game, Skyrim. In the game a Dovahkiin is a rare individual born with the soul of a dragon. Dorky of me, I know. My Husband plays the game and I told him he could name the foal.. (so he would get attached too ;) But I thought it was rather fitting since this is the chinese year of the dragon.
RIP little Dovah!!!!
I have all this foal fever I don't know what to with now! :( So sad. She would've been a great horse! And poor LuLu...
I had a friend who bought a mare and a month later, she gave birth. No one knew she was pregnant. Previous owner said she got out and in with the stallion but "didn't think she was pregnant." Even had her checked and ultrasounded. The mare was thin already and we were all completely shocked.
When the baby came, he was healthy but the unfortunately the mare had no milk and rejected him. Sadly and much to our disappointment, he passed after three days. We tried everything to keep him here with us but was not meant to be. It was a complete roller coaster ride and very, very hard emotionally. We were all devastated.
It is very sad and I understand your loss. Again, I am glad that LuLu is healthy. And know too, that she will bounce back.
