Lost the Baby- Thanks to all

Sugar aborted her baby Thursday pm. Heatbreaking but for the best as the Vet showed me how his insides were growing on the outside. He estimated that she was about 4-5 months along. Apparently the baby had been dead for a while but no infection for Sugar since it was still in the sack. Mother Nature's way and not stress from her move. Thank Goodness or I would have never forgiven myself. She did not pass the after birth so Vet came out and gave shots and removed it. She was a good girl especially considering no sedation could be given. Only shots for contractions. Guess it was good that I got her as the Vet said there is only a 10-12 hour window to get the after birth out.
The good news is that she is now eating well, and in with the herd. Her and Homer are best friends but now she is the one bossing him...

Now if I can only get the sores on her legs healed we will be good to go.

Just wanted to thank everyone again for all your help and support.

Well, nuts! But I'm glad Sugar is doing okay. It sounds like she and Homer have buddied-up so maybe it will be less stressful if you decide to try again.
Sure wopuld love to see photos of them!

I'm glad you ended up keeping her, sounded like for a little bit you weren't sure if you would. Sorry for your loss.

Oh no :( I'm so sorry Sherie!

You did everything right though, by the sounds of it. If she had aborted back at her old home, her breeder may have not noticed so quickly and she could have gotten a very serious infection. Afterbirth is nothing to be messed with.

Poor gal, no wonder she wasn't wanting to eat! I'm so glad to hear that she and Homer are friends now though, and while the death of the baby is sad, things should go much more smoothly for you, Sugar, and Homer now.

We still need pictures of miss long ears!!!

Hated to hear about the loss, albeit it being for the best. Hopefully the legs will heal soon and she can be even more relaxed.

Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your condolences. It was a bad experience but trying to focus on the positive and that is that Sugar is doing so much better and has bonded with the herd. The farrier was out on Monday and we were able to get her feet done so that is another good thing. Still treating the sores on her legs. Farrier suggested furazone so we have been doing that for the last couple of days. Vet had suggested fly leg wraps once she is healed but after the experinces I have had with fly masks with my horses I can't imagine them staying on.
Wish I could post pictures but I don't have that kind of camera and I am tech challanged anyway. My friend has promised to come out and take some and help me post for you guys. Must say she is really cute and looks so much different than Homer. She is gray & with white spots so I guess she is a spotted donkey or a paint as my farrier joked. Her face is white with grey ears and she has a brown cross. My husband says she has a face like a horse... so unlike Homer. He is a gray & roan color with a really big head. Also his top lip comes down almost over his bottom lip but Sugar does not have that going on. I don't know if it is because he is from BLM parents or if it is because she is a mini. She is so adorable I am tempted to breed her again sometime but after all the worry about Homer hurting the baby I will likely not take the chance.
