    Aww, I'm so sorry, and like everyone else said, there really wasn't much you could have done otherwise. You didn't know.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of the little guy. It's hard to say what could have happened. There are so many things that can happen that really even if you had known the mare was pregnant it would have made little difference in the outcome. Nature works in mysterious ways which is at times, very sad.

    Foal
    So sorry this happened to you. Please believe me when I say that there's probably nothing you could have done. And actually, giving birth in a grassy pasture is a great way for a foal to come into the world. It's usually cleaner than a stall with less opportunity for the umbilical cord to become infected.
    A friend of mine, who's a breeder, has lost foals over the years. They were usually premature. I actually helped her with a 2-3 week premature Friesian, and I wouldn't wish that experience on anyone. There's such a small chance of survival in those cases, and this little guy did have to be put down in the end.
    My2Geldings is right....nature often does work in mysterious ways, but they usually work out for the best.

    Foal
    I'm so sorry =(


    Don't beat yourself up! It sounds like you take very good care of your horses and theres nothing you probably could have done for the foal.


    At least you had checked her background when you bought her, you were mislead! =(


    It could have happened to anyone
