I don't know how they did that. They are a truly wonderful facility & great vet. Just one of those things. I was literally in tears over it as I've gotten the most wonderful Rotspon filly this year. Just fabulous & wanted to breed to him again.
I instead have used my one dose of Furst Romancier. I know some people have said that his get have been kind of on the clunky side but I personally have only seen very refined ones. My broodmare has movement galore & has only produced wonderful movers in the past so hopefully this cross will be great also.
Thanks Justonemore & everyone for the well wishes & help. I did get a great one this year but just found out that she has an umbilical infection & will need to be on antibiotics for just under 2 months. She doesn't know she has any infection though. She's feeling great, blood work perfect, no temp. At EMCO now with mother & they're the best so she's in great hands.
I believe that God does work in mysterious ways. Maybe this is his way of saying, Enough Rotspons. Time for something else that may be even better! Who knows.
Jingle for little Replicant von Wattfee. (Replica of Wattfee). Barn name Reesy cause she's sweet like a Reese,s cup!
If anyone on this board knows my big Walt Disney mare you'll know just what this filly looks like as she is truly a clone of her big mama.
You might want to just call a couple of different vet clinics and casually ask what their antibiotic protocol is usually for mild umbilical infections...
I've had two foals, both had umbilical infections within their first 2 weeks of life. One of them was more symptomatic (i.e. green pus on her stump and a very slight temp), the other was less so (just a bit of swelling around the stump). The first was on antibiotics for 2 weeks, second for only 1 week. Both infections cleared up quickly and easily...
Yea, I'm keeping her down near EMCO in Ocala for a while so they can continue to ultrasound the area to see if we're making headway. If not we'll change antibiotics. If so then we can hopefully not make her go through such a long period of meds.
