Can you have a shipper, perhaps a local person, take the foal to the vets for the coggins & health cert. Coggins should only take a day or two, then have the foal picked up from the vets?
Heck, post on U-ship, you can probably find someone willing to deal with Jill & pick up said foal & deliver to he vet for layover.
LuvMyHunter - maybe hire a Private Investigator to find out the location of the foals, if she has moved them. (Or maybe Dawg the Bounty Hunter has a few free hours, lol)
Is your foal weaned? If not, it has the same coggins status as the mare until it is weaned. Dunno if that helps you or not.
As others have advised - I would get yourself or someone you trust to act as your agent, out there , hire a hauler to meet you and get your foal. Drive directly to a vet clinic to get a coggins in your name. Maybe even board the foal at the vet clinic until the results are in (or for treatment if the poor lil thing is sick)
I Agree fully with Jody Jafe who advised calling the local newspapers and the TV news.
This is a horrible situation, I hope it all turns out well for you! Good Luck!
HoofJustice seems to know where the horses are and their condition. Doubt that she would get involved but perhaps she might let you know the location.
Jill's cronies are probably updating her on your post so I wouldn't be surprised if she moved your colt.
I'd bet something happened to the foal and that is why the stories or that she is going to say you owe X amount of dollars for board or whatever before he can leave. Seems like that is the pattern she follows. Sorry you are having such a hard time. I would do as others suggested and get law enforcement, the press and anyone else willing to help involved. Also second contacting Hoof Justice.
Jill has accepted friend requests on FB in the last day, so she's got web access, and is most likely reading.
As for the poster who can't get her foal seen by a vet, hire a shipper to haul the foal to a veterinary hospital in the area or to another farm. A few days or a month at another farm is a small price to pay to not have to deal with JB.
Not sure if they will be of help to you or when their next run that will pass Marin will be scheduled (they run WA to Southern Cal, weekly) but American Horse Transport is the shipper that I used. They were rockstars and were adamant about getting my mare off of Jill's property. I owe so much thanks to them in helping me out of my GFF situation. It may be worth a call to the dispatcher to see if they can help, even though at the time they vowed not to go near Jill's property again. Although, you'd have to have a current address for the foal... I wish you all the best and I'm so sorry that this type of thing continues to happen to honest horse owners.
If the vet clinic wont go out if you pay them upfront, you need to do more and now.
I would've been in CA yesterday. I hope every thing works out and your baby is OK.

I may be wrong, but pretty sure you can remove Facebook posts via a computer, but not via a smartphone. Her computer probably crashed months ago and she's too broke to fix/buy a new one and is using her smartphone now.
Sounds like it's time for legal action...hopefully you have something in mind.
This is too ironic, I just emailed her today for more info on breeding to romantic star. I am crushed, I was in live with him and he is a perfect compliment to my mare. I guess the search is on again.
