What could have caused this foals death?
A friend of mine told me that one of her mares slipped her foal after 7 months gestation. As terrible as that is what was interesting to me was the foal was pure white. I know many will say Lethal White Syndrome but neither the mare or the stallion were paints of any sort. The mare is a sorrel TB and the sire is a dark bay Oldenburg. Neither have any paints in their lineage so what else could this have been. Is the fact that the foal was white even a factor in its death? I don't know but it sure got me thinking. I have no more data other than this mare has had several healthy foals and this stallion has no known history of issues with his offspring.
