Question what do you think happened?

I was told by Jubilee's previous owner that she was bred before, but her foal died. Apparently she accidentally did something to it. I was just wondering ... what are common reasons for a failed pregnancy or death in a foal? Does anyone know what could have happened with my mare's foal? Maybe this question can't be answered, but I thought maybe there are common reasons foals die. I have no other details on it, but I think the foal died during or shortly after pregnancy.

Just curious to know. Thanks!

There are way too many possible reasons to try to guess if you don't have more details. Can you ask what happened?

You could be looking at a whole gammut of possibilities. Accidently stepping on it and breaking its leg, being too uncomfortable to let it nurse right down to being so threatened by the foal that she killed it violoently.
You'll just have to keep drilling the previous owner to find out.

There are lots of causes.

What are the causes of foal death?

Your best bet is to ask

If they said it was an accident maybe she stepped on it on squashed it against something. I have heard of mares not being too careful and accidentally stepping on their foals :(

But like everyone said there are just way too many possibilities as to what is the truth.

Was the foal born healthy?

She could've been trying to get up and fallen on it, not let it nurse.. so many possibilities. If I were you I'd just call the old owners up and say you wanted to know.
