Please Help! I have a term mare (only days off foaling) who i thought was going into labor last night, that is untill she started rolling violently. I rang the vet as i susspected that we had a breach foaling, when he arrived he had a feel around only to discover her bowl had some how worked it's way over her uterus. He is a very compatent equine vet and he said he has never seen any thing like this in his whole vetrinary life. She has stopped thrashing about this morning but her bowl is still where it's not meant to be. We have now been confronted with three options, surgery (the mare is 18yo and he said that the odds aren't good) besides that it is way out of our reach finacially. Option two is to induce foaling and hope that once the mass is gone from her uterus the bowl will correct itself and option three is to put the mare down.
I have opted for option two, and it will be done at lunch time today, as you can imagine i am a little worried about things going very wrong. Just tell me i have exhausted all options and i am doing the right thing!!!

Oh hun! I am sorry you and your mare are going through this. I will be praying for you and i think you have doen the right thing by her and yourself. If you did not try you would always be second guessing youself. I have a feeling things will be okay. Cant wait to see the new foal! Maybe things will work out before you hve to induce. Be thankful that she is a term mare too!

Unfortunately, this is an area where we are really unable to provide assistance or advice, as there are so many variables that only the examining veterinarian would be privy to. :-(

There are significant risks in inducing foaling, so although it may be the route to go, induction in itself is not without its own risks.

All I can suggest is that if you are uncomfortable with the decision, seek a second opinion from someone who is able to evaluate the mare - perhaps your local veterinary teaching university.

Good luck!

Hey every one, I have been posting updates on the foal watch disscution board but for those of you who haven't been there, Honey didn't make it, she expelled her intestines as we had feared she may have. We are working on getting the foal good now. He is not looking to bad so fingers crossed.

OK sorry, i was a bit down before when i posted that ... its a bit like a rollar coaster at the moment. He is chestnut with a white face and a white sock. We have named him Sonny, it's sounds a bit like Honey and he is her son. Just kind of fitted. I am going to post pics on my website tonight so when i'm done i will post a link to his page.

Emma,
I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a gorgeous, loving mare when she was 10 months in foal...hard enough to loose the one's we love so dearly, but even worse when there is a foal also.
Never doubt your decision to let Sonny go...he's with his mama now over the Rainbow Bridge. I hope they meet Dronita and her foal up there...I feel certain that once she entered Horse Heaven, that she gave birth.
I guess we have to deal with the heartaches that come with loving our horses so much, but they do enrich our lives so very much.
Again, my sympathy.
