    It really sucks waiting so long(almost a year at this point from her first breeding exam) only to loose it.

    The vet thinks it might have been stress, this winter has had a lot of snow and ice, as well as abnormal temperature swings. It keeps going from above freezing to extremely cold and back again, almost weekly. Average daily high for this time of year is -2, forecast for tomorrow is -35. Its been really hard on the animals trying to adapt. The vet just had a late term abortion in one of his best brood mares for no logical reason.

    just goes to show, breeding isn't all joy and adorable foals

    Found the body. It was just what the BO was hoping for all the time, a bay colt

    gosh this is heart breaking. Lets just hope the other three mares make it uneventfully through the next few months

    Don't forget, abortions also accurre if the foal was developmentally not "up to par". Also, how many times was this mare bred? If the mare and foals blood type mismatch eventually the mare will build up antibodies to their future foals. The body will actually the baby because it recognizes the foal as a foreign body.

    The mare is a maiden. Foal looks perfect, but you never know.

    Look at all the babies who come out looking perfect, alive to stillborn, who have issues. You cannot see everything from the outside.

    I was reading, and there are so many potential causes. It could be rhino, because the vaccines are not 100% effective, could be another virus, bacterial infection, umbilical cord twist, foal defect, mare stress. So many possibles. She is being tested for rhino, but we may not know for sure what did it.

    Before I rebred her, if she was my mare, I would have cytology and culture done. Frequently, late abortion is caused by a subclinical infection that can be cleared up fairly easily if treated before the rebreed. The key is the cytology, it will pick up things even before they show up on culture.

    So very sorry to hear of your loss. Was your mare running a fever? Was she up to date on her vaccinations, or exposed to any other horses who may not have been? Late term abortions can be attributed to Rhino, among a long list of other less common problems.
