Bahia grass is probably not the problem - that is standard grass for the southwest (I lived in TX for 10 yrs., and that was all we had - never lost a foal). If she is reabsorbing, there is no way to tell exactly when, or how long will take - depends on mare, size of embryo, etc. Horses abort/miscarry/absorb based on many different reasons - could have been a twin, could have been a genetic problem, infection, hormone imbalance, mild colic, etc. Horses are very dainty for all their size, and it doesn't take much to make it happen. I would have the vet do a physical exam, to make sure all is OK, and evaluate her condition. Overweight, underweight, too much supplements, too much protein, insufficient access to water, etc. Anything can trigger it. Hopefully the next one will go OK. HOpe this helps.
