My intention yesterday was to come and post a foaling thread for my saddle mares that are due this week. Instead we woke to a mare in distress and a malpositioned baby. We lost the foal - a beautiful filly that was a perfect match to last years colt. The mare seems to be doing better today. I did milk her out and froze/banked the colostrum in the event anyone in the area losses a mare but baby survives and to promote delivery of the placenta as well as help shrink the uterus back to size. The other mare is still waiting and I am dreading going out and doing checks for fear of what I'll find. My head knows that the odds are in my favor and all should go well but my heart is hurting.
