So sorry for your losses. Sending positive thoughts your way!

So terribly sad. I find it incredibly frustrating that the most careful, loving owners - after carefully researching crosses of mare and stud and excitedly planning each foal - suffer such losses while the most neglectful, crappy owners seem to get their skinny, elf-footed, jug headed mares to knock out baby after baby without the most basic measures of care :(

I'm afraid I can't offer any real ideas what might have caused them. I don't really consider those late term abortions - they are too early to really suspect fescue or endometritis, and evidently infections have been ruled out. My instinct is to suspect something they injested - could be either food or water, or some kind of stress, both of which can be difficult or next to impossible to conclusively identify...

Oh no, so sorry. We lost a foal last year, he was a still born. It's such a sad thing having the loss of a foal, not to mention two. :(

It sounds like you've done everything you could have possibly done to prevent this. Sometimes things like this just happen... doesn't make it hurt any less though.
