Mare that wasn't prgenant (lol) surprised us with a foal at 3:00 yesterday she was distressed at 6:00 gave her more banamine,and called the vet we lost her at 3:30 am.. I milked her one last time post mortum. I don't even know if I can use it, but I took the chance. Does anyone have collostrum or nurse mare or ideas for an orphan foal?

I have frozen colostum by I'm in Florida. Call all large animal hospitals, vet schools and large breeders in your area. Your vet can give her plasma IV to get her IgG numbers up to 800. Get your vet to check her IgG, they usually want to wait 24+ hours old but should be done as early as 12 hours, insist on it, time is your enemy. It is physically and emotionally difficult raising an orphan, don't skimp on the IgG test and if it needs a transfusion you need to do it or you will lose the baby. You are welcome to my colostrum but the expense of overnighting it would be better spent having a plama transfusion done. Treat the navel with diluted Novalsan several times a day for a week. You will probably need a blanket to keep it warm, if it is small, a large dog blanket should fit.

Here is an article on IgG to help you understand the importants and be able to discuss it with your vet.

I wish you luck and strength with your new baby.

If your foal is still in need of a nurse mare, we have a friend in TX who lost a newborn foal on Apr 3rd. Might not be too late to try...
