Dang, that is upsetting Shefff... One thing I hate about being so active on this horse forum is you see the ups and the downs. Everyday someone has to update their thread with something as tradgic as losing a foal I count my blessings. I hope LuLu gives up on her baby search and goes back to being a horse. So sorry you had to go through something like this.

We removed the filly from the barn and broke the sac. One of her legs was folded back and the other one was forward, as it should be.

For those of you still wonder what the baby looked like- she looked EXACTLY like her momma; Solid black, faint white snowflakes on her hips, striped hooves, and one sock on one of her hind legs.

Sorry for the bad news after all the hype. I'm very disappointed. :(
...but the good news is my mare is doing just fine and she did pass the placenta. She keeps running back to the barn looking around, which is sad, but she is in good health.

Thanks for all the support anyways!
that is heartbreaking :(
