I'm so sorry . I know it's hard but don't blame yourself, these things happen to everyone. You gave her the best life you could for the time you had her and that is what is important.

Oh my goodness!! I am so terribly sorry for your losses! I can't imagine how you feel but I assure you it was definitely not your fault. The unfortunate just happens sometimes and our hearts break.
You gave her the best she could have and that matters most.
HUGE hugs!!!

I feel like it was my fault because I hadn't even gone down to check her, but her bag was not full, and her hind end was not relaxed enough. The colt was alive just the day before because I saw it moving around. My dad assured me that there was nothing we could do, and even if I had been there, caught it, and called the vet, the foal wouldn't have made it, and the mare most likely wouldn't either because they would have had to cut her open to get the foal out. I hadn't checked on her because I thought she wasn't ready... but either way, they both didn't make it.

Oh, and just the crown and the ears made it out.. and it was a black mule foal...
I'm very sorry for your loss, but I have to disagree that the mare and foal couldn't of been saved.

Timely intervention could have turn the foal's head. Iif not a fetotomy can be done... aka cutting the foal out of the dam piece by piece and it would have been inside the mare, not cutting up of the mare to get the foal out. Not pretty, but it saves the mare.. things like this are why it is so important to keep an eye on mares ready to foal. It's an unpleasant subject and is a good thing for anyone thinking of breeding to keep in mind...

I totally agree. Equine medicine has come leaps and bounds in dealing with dystocia in mares.

Sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss :(

Though there may have been a way to save the mare and/or foal, hindsight is 20/20 and it does you no good to spend time wishing you could go back in time. Move forward, stronger and wiser from this tradegy. *hugs*

I'm so sorry this happened. It was easy to tell she was your favorite. They can never be replaced but keeping my fingers crossed that soon you'll have a new baby to hug and help you smile again, it does help. Hugs!

Agreed. I too am very sorry for your loss. Guilt won't bring her back. For the mare's sake though, I do hope lack of manual repositioning of the foal's head caused arterial rupture letting her go very quickly rather than spending hours with septicemia.

Using this opportunity to learn from and educate others would be a good way to honor her memory, and it might help you work through the grief.
