So sorry about the filly. But so very happy your mare is ok. Is there any possibility of using her as a nurse mare if someone needed one, or do the meds she was given or her temperment rule that out? Just thought if she had a baby to raise, she might feel better.
I did offer her as a nurse mare but there are not really any foals this time of year (especially up here). In the future she would be a perfect one that is for aure. She will be very heartbroken not to have a foal of her own anymore.
Guelph said it could have happened in a previous pregnancy about 3-4 weeks prior to foaling...it would have been some sort of slip maybe? They weren't too sure...it just happened to show up/affected her this time...that is why they said I shouldn't breed her (to carry, just ET) anymore because it may or may not be a problem, and why have to go through this process again.
I am going to pick her up tonight, the vet wanted to flush her one more time and my driver was sick so it kind of worked out last night. I cannot wait to get her home!!
FalseImpression: Yes, she is home and happy to be home! She still doesn't have the glow usually in her eyes (she is still a touch sore) but there is a bit of a glimmer tonight which was VERY nice to see!! I have slept the BEST I have in weeks the last 2 nights that is for sure!!
I measured her belly where it was the biggest (just before bringing her to the clinic) and compared to now and there was about 5-6” difference!! (Just so you know I did cut marks in her hair on her belly along the 3 measuring points to ensure the same measurements every time.)
