    Default Jingles needed (and possibly a nurse mare)-Update last post

    Partial repeat of thread below "foal can't lay down" and more....I never thought I would be writing one of these threads. On Monday morning my mare foaled at 2:30am. It was a text book foaling....good presentation, passed complete placenta, foal stood and nursed within an hour. When I left for work at 8am all was great. I continued to watch them all day via Mare Stare and the foal appeared to be standing ALL day, but was nursing and bouncing around the paddock normally. When I got home the filly's rear limbs were severely swollen so I loaded them up and on the way to the vet school we went as I was worried about possible septic joints.

    Thankfully all her blood work looked good and ultrasounds were normal. I decided to leave them there overnight to have the surgery team look at her the next day just to be sure. This is where it all goes bad...

    At 1:30am I got a call saying the mare was having a violent colic attack and she was not responding to pain management, surgery was indicated. So off to surgery she went. She has a 360degree colonic torsion. Thankfully because she was already there surgery was performed almost instantly. However, she then aspirated during recovery and has since developed pneumonia.

    She is recovering now and doing OK, not perfect, but OK. The foal is doing super and thankfully able to nurse from her mom.

    If all goes well they will be home in 10-14 days. If it does not go well I may be needing a nurse mare

    So jingles needed and just putting some "feelers" out there regarding nurse mares. My friend Ashley has been WONDERFUL about putting together leads if needed, but I thought I would network as much as possible. The more prepared you are the less likely you will need it!

    Yes! Thank you. I am really hoping to not need a nurse mare. This mare is a heart horse as she is the matriarch to my entire farm (as well as the namesake). She really looked better today when I visited but of course the vets will not say she is even remotely out of the woods yet. Being a vet myself I understand that, but also being the owner it frustrates me!! This whole thing has really reintroduced to me what it is like to be on the "other side of the conversation" and will make me much more cognoscente when talking with my clients about their animals.
