Thanks. This was my riding mare who had badly hurt her back leg. I was told by the vet to shoot her. I phoned around and got other opinions and decided to give her a chance. If she was willing to fight, then so was I. I spent 11 months nursing her leg through the winter. Tons of bandages, setbacks, etc. The day she foaled I happened to be home and got to watch all of it. It was so rewarding especially after all of the work. I sat in the pasture and cried! The mare is now fine and can be ridden lightly. The foal is now 2 and has started ground work. Thanks for the comment.
