Well, the vet came out yesterday morning and gave me bad news....

Sally was way, way over her dates, laying down alot, off her feed, just something not right and looked as if she was feeling bad. She'd have been 365 days tomorrow....and has always foaled close to 345 days...so I had her palpated.

Dumplin, who is 23, never gets big or a bag. Since she was around a week over her dates, I had her palpated.

In the spirit of being now gun-shy about the other two, I had Fancy palpated too. She would have been 345 days on 6/25.

I bred a maiden mare in April and 2 wks later we had a bad cold snap. I had her palpated to confirm pregnancy.

Results of Vet Palpations:
Sally-no baby, cervix seems closed
Dumplin-no baby
Fancy-no baby, cervix feels hard, as though she could be coming in heat
Dolly-no baby, also may be about to come in heat

I'm still in shock! I'm so glad Lady had little Sugar....

I've spoken to the stallion owners/managers, and they have been just great....I'm breeding back when they are ready. The vet said the drought was likely the cause, as there have been so many losses in this area because of it....mares dying, foals dying, both dying, and tons of spontaneous abortions. Seems their bodies just told them it wasn't feasable in such conditions and absorbed them.

Dumplin is officially retired and will be her beautiful self in the pasture from here on out. Sally (we think) is reacting to the really sudden hot temperatures and humidity....she's getting B-12 and mylanta to soothe her stomach a bit.

Thought I'd share with yall, as you've all been so great!

I'm sorry:-( I can't believe that all of your horses lost their foals, what a streak of bad luck. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can get them pregnant again.

That's unbelievable, I'm so sorry to hear about all your mares being open. That stinks! I can't believe how much weather conditions affects these mares.

I hope you have very good luck from here on out.

Thanks yall.
Sally is back to very slowly eating after a B-12. The mares are enjoying being out all the time now, not in the stall at night and out during the day.

I have 2 maiden mares I'm getting ready to breed. Dolly will be re-bred to the same stallion and Precious will be bred when she is healed from her accident at 2am Sunday....she somehow was impaled on something, but nobody can find what. She has SEVERAL stitches in her right side over a rib...vet told me if the rib hadn't stopped it or it had been at a different angle, she'd have collapsed a lung and died. She's moving well, just a bit sore...and runs from the penicillin injection every day. So she's feeling fairly well.....good enough to run Dolly off her feed!

The other three mares will be bred this fall.

I'm very thankful that Lady was able to foal Sugar without any more problems than she had. She is a great filly and is halter breaking very well. I've been spending a lot of time with her, so she'll lead like a pro by weaning time!

Beth, I know that this is an old post, but I somehow missed it and wanted to respond. I'm so sorry your girls didn't get pregnant. How disappointing for not just one, but all four!

What is the status now? Please forgive me if you've updated us. I have some memory problems and am still trying to learn the names of at least the regulars, and their horses. I need to make a list, I think.

I'm hoping all are pregnant and doing well. I'm crossing my fingers for you and sending good vibes your way. And I think it is great that you are able to retire Dumplin to a lovely pasture for the rest of her days. And glad Sugar is coming along so nicely with halter training.

Anyway, wishing all is well your way.
