Not my own mare luckily, but back where I got her, a mare miscarried a couple days ago, but I am wondering which mare it is. The owner said it was Brandy, but also said that Indie has had a major weight drop off and is acting odd and sick. Would this be miscarriage? Or would a pregnancy affect her that way if she doesnt have enough nutrients? poor baby

There's no way of knowing. A vet exam would be necessary in the event that the aborted fetus or other more obvious signs were not apparent.

My mom lost two colts. They wouldn't try to get up when they where born. Twenty four hours later they died. My mom blames the stud, I feel that the mares didn't get what they needed to go the full 11 months.

Twins or separate pregnancies?

If twins, then that is almost certainly the cause of the loss.

If separate pregnancies, unless there is hereditary condition (which must also typically be carried by the mare) - for example OLWS - the it is highly unlikely that the issue was with the stallion (and as I note, in the case of a hereditary condition, it is almost certainly an issue that has to be carried by the mare as well).

There are quite a few causes of neonatal death. What was the IgG reading of the foal's blood taken at 9-12 hours post foaling? If it was <800 mg/dl, then there was probably a failure of passive transfer and you saw neonatal septicaemia. This can be as a result of an environmental pathogen such as Klebsiella pneumoniae which is found in a variety of places including shavings and sawdust; you could also have a Clostridia problem on your farm, which is not uncommon and can also cause death shortly after birth; or if the mares had been exposed to an active case of EVA in the last few weeks, that could have been the cause of the foal's death... the list goes on...

Have the foals necropsied by your veterinarian. Send both the foals and the placenta. If there is a potentially recurrent issue, hopefully the necropsy will identify it, and you will be able to prevent it in other pregnancies or other mares.
