Awaiting champagne foal

Postby wolfwoman » Mon Mar 24, 2014 7:42 am

Madelyn is a 4 year old champagne mare we rescued from slaughter last year. we were not aware at the time that she was pregnant but knew she might be since she was pastured with a stud. We think Madelyn is a Rocky Mountain Saddle Horse. The stud is an Arabian/QH cross and is gorgeous. White hair with gold patches on his skin in a Tobiano pattern, a brown medicine hat and blue eyes. Madelyn is a homozygous classic champagne so the baby should be awesome.. She is due any day! I will try to post pics.

Thanks Lori. Madelyn foaled on April 16, 2014 at Tennessee Equine Hospital. Unfortunately the baby could not be saved. She was a beautiful classic champagne filly. The cord was wrapped around one of her front legs. By the time the vets were able to get her out she was dead. They trued to save her but she was too far gone. We are devastated and heartbroken. If Madelyn had not been at that facility we would have lost her too.

I'm so sorry to learn of this. Hope you and your mare are recovering.

I have not heard of that problem in foals before, although I could see it happening. Did they say there was any particular reason for the cord to tangle in the legs? Did the cord break before the birth due to that? Hope you don't mind the questions, only trying to learn.

Take care,

Lori

The cord got wrapped around her leg during her normal movement or during positioning for birth. The cord did not break before birth and Madelyn retained the placenta for 30 hours. This is the same thing that happened at the birth of my first child except the cord was wrapped around his neck 3 times. They are just horrible accidents that can't be prevented.
