Just confirming that they had their Pneumabort vacs at 5 months? Grabbing at straws here, sometimes Mother Nature is just a Beyotch and breaks your heart, no other explanation available.

Pneumabort shot should have been given at 3, 5, 7 and 9 months throughout the pregnancy. If you don't vaccinate while they are pregnant, did they at least get these shots at 3 and 5 months?

Do you not give vaccines 30 days prior to foaling?

Sorry for the loss.

We do not do Pneumabort. I like hundreds of others had foal deformaties from the vaccine. I would rather have a spontanious abortion than a deformed baby on the ground.

The USDA did test for EHV (what pneumabort gives immunity against) they were negative.

Yes I do the vaccine 30 days prior to foaling. That is the only one I do while pregnant as at that stage they are completely formed just waiting to be born :)

Vet is thinking it is mother nature at this point :( Had a friend that seemed to think hickory leaves would cause abortion we do have a hickory tree outside the field.. but I have pastured pregnant mares in this field for a lot of years with no issues. We hae had some wind storms as of late that blew leaves into field... I cannot find anything thought on the net that relates hickory to abortion..

That is just sick and wrong of mother nature, then.

I live in the northern mountains of Utah with my wonderful husband, 5 horses, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 32 geese and 9 ducks. Life is good.

Me too. I'm hoping it's just bad luck X2 and not something more.

Everyday just keeps re-enforcing for what a trainer of mine once said, "You can wrap them in bubble wrap and keep 'em in padded stalls and then they'll eat the padding colic and die.". Horses are the most amazingly delicate of big, tough creatures!

Yes very well said. I always tell people horses are constantly trying to kill themselves. Im hoping this is it. When we hear back about lepto i'll post result. Still waiting on result though vet doesnt seem to think that is it as there would be some other signs

Ghost, so sorry.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
