    Unhappy My heart is broken.....lost a foal today...

    I think I am still in shock......

    My mare Nyla lost her foal today....she was 7 months in foal and she aborted due to the foal having an umbilical torsion.

    It was a filly....she had a white face and 3 white legs.......I so wanted a filly from this cross..this was my dream foal......

    Nyla seems to be doing fine..which is my main concern....she has not passed her placenta yet but I am giving her oxytocin every few hours to help things along. Vet will be out again in the morning......

    Please keep Nyla in your thoughts.......

    I'm so sorry! And really worried for the mare who hasn't passed her placenta yet. Please let us know when she's out of the woods.

    So sorry for your loss. Jingles for Nyla and ((((HUGS)))) to you both.

    My friends lost a foal on Sunday. She wasn't due until April. They were out of state for the weekend, taking what would have been this baby's full sibling to a trainer in OK. It was a filly also. Their grandson did chores for them, but it must have happened after he chored in the morning and before they got home. At least she was up in the lot and not out in the back 140 w/ the other mares and cattle. Probably never would have found it. She had caslicks, too, but all is well back there and she's doing fine.

    I'm so sorry for your losses.... the loss of the foal and the loss of the dream. I hope Nyla passes the placenta quickly and gives you a healthy filly next year.
