Oddly, this hasn't been a good foaling year for a few people I know. A friend of mine has lost two foals this year, both for reasons beyond her control. She ended up sending one of her mares to be a nurse mare for an orphaned foal.
This is very true.. dd things have been happening.. freak accidents with foals and mature horses, breeding issues, mares not ovulating, etc.. My Vet says it has been a very weird season in varied situations..

So sorry you've been affected..

Thank you everyone for all your kind words. Zina has been a real trooper - probably took it easier then I did. Vet gave her a clean bill of health. She figures it's just mother nature. A foal of hers did the same thing - came out fully formed but a still born - I did not opt for an autopsy on the foal, but she figures either birthing or developmental issues.
I know of three other breeders that have lost foals within the last month. It's been a tough year for a lot of people so far.
I'm crossing my fingers for the rest of my lil buggers that are coming and will be out there 100% of the time, whether they want company or not.
