    To the OP - I lost a beautiful filly in 2011 because of a neck injury that caused severe ataxia and did not improve with the best possible treatment. She was about three months old when we had to put...

    I cannot speak to your mare's bloodlines, csaper58, but I do understand your thoughts and I am very sorry for your loss. Special horses leave huge holes. My best thoughts to you.

    I am a fan of Fidertanz. Any day my Prince Thatch mare should give us a Floriscount baby in Germany. :)

    My bet is that he can't count placentas, too. :winkgrin:

    My only case of twins being carried long into a pregnancy was from a cycle where the vet never worried about twins because she was absolutely certain that the mare did not double ovulate. Obviously,...

    I interpreted this as the mare has not yet received her pre-foaling shots. I certainly did not make the mental leap to lack of any vaccinations.

    OP, I agree with ahf on this. Consult your vet to...

    Interestingly, my mare with the one white sclera eye is by Weltmekannt (no white sclera, dark brown with minimal markings) out of my Rubinstein I mare Rubizza (no white sclera, dark bay with minimal...

    Thanks, twelvegates! She is a smarty pants. :winkgrin: She was a wonderful show horse (super work ethic and potential). I kept her in work with my trainer for a couple of years before I bred her. Now...

    A lot of horses with large blazes will have an eye with white sclera. On of my first homebred fillies has one. At first, I disliked that eye and would always try to take pics of her from her "good"...

    I am mind boggled by the numerous generalizations on this thread of WBs being hard to ride, too sensitive, etc.

    Because real breeders still will have breeding horses in their blood and will until they die. I continue to live vicariously through other's foals. Some of us retired breeders might even still be...

    That is so sad. He was a wonderful horse. Condolences to all his people.

    Ditto Siegi, Mystic Oak and DY. I am out of it because of Siegi's list, without exception. I have one mare breeding in Germany and because of what Alexandria has described, I think that I should give...

    Ranch Adobe, not recent. I used in-utero insurance it in 2005. In hindsight, I should have gambled and saved my $$$. :winkgrin:

    As far as foal insurance, I think it is still possible to find it...
  17. I had a client who was able to get foal insurance...

    I had a client who was able to get foal insurance from 3 days of age, but I do not remember the company she used. That will be much simpler than in-utero insurance.
  18. Very few offer in-utero insurance for anything...

    Very few offer in-utero insurance for anything except TBs. Cunningham and Cunningham in NY does. It is VERY expensive.

    Honestly, the diagnosis just does not seem at all likely. I would have her seen by a vet that is very, very familiar with young horses, their growth and especially with LOTS of experience in reading...

    dressagecat, there is a legitimate well regarded farm that uses the "grey farm" spelling, as opposed to the farm in California that has become very poorly regarded that using the spelling "gray fox."...

    They really WANT the horses to move this way??? To me they look almost lame. The heads in the dirt look ridiculous. These big men on these poor little things hurts my eyes, especially with the...

    I am so very, very sorry for your loss. You did everything possible to save your little one. Sometimes nothing is enough. They are so very fragile. Sending my best thoughts on this sad day.
