Well he told me that the fetus had died in utero and pretty much hasn't been growing or active since most likely 8 weeks along. He scheduled me today for surgery, just a D&C so I wouldn't get an infection. I have been heart broken all weekend knowing the outcome wouldn't be good and it has been very emotional for me because my husband and I have tried for 1 1/2 yrs to get pregnant with our 2nd child and then this happens. Well, you can bet once I am better we will be trying again for sure. WELL that was the bad news.
The good news is that well, when I got out of recovery, my husband surprised me with a new horse!! He knew I was looking at this filly for a while (before we knew all this going on), he never really paid much attention to her, but I guess when I was in surgery, he left the hospital, went to the woman's house and bought the filly for me and had her home in our front yard (to make sure I saw her, lol) so when he brought me home, you can be sure I was in tears!! My husband is the sweetest man EVER!!!
I mean, it won't undue what happened, but I know he was just trying to cheer me up a bit and give me hope. Okay so more about the filly.
Her registered name is Skootin Poka Dox and she is APHA (Perlino)
All Breed Pedigree Query=
I LOVE her, I never thought I would like Perlino's but she is GORGEOUS!!! Her mane goes past her neck and she reminds me of this mystical unicorn. They dind't have a barn name for her so I have to think of some names. She was 2 in May of this year. She is very very mellow and is NOT dominant around my gelding at all which is AWESOME because he loves other horses and I can't stand bossy horses, haha.
Okay so I will attach some photos of her from what they gave me, but I will try and take better pictures tomorrow of her and of course so you can see them bigger. The last picture I am attaching is of her sire. Apparently she is very nicely cow bred and her sire is a straight up cutting horse which is nice. I am just soo excited to start working with her on her ground work, which by the way she is great at lunging and the saddle. Once I am not cramping or bleeding anymore, I will get out there and start working with both my horses.
Sorry for the long story but it was just special to me how she came into our family and I just had to share.
