Well I had not had this mare very long about a month. She acted normal and I when out to feed my horses this morning and I find her foal. She was about 170 to 180 days along I'm at a lose of words. It would have been the first spotted foals we even had and the only colt the now gelding had. We are really sad about the lost and Gypsy is very sad as well. I just wish I know what went wrong are vet give no answer today. If anyone interested I know it my gross some people out but I do have picture if anyone interested . "have them for the breeder to proof she did abort."

Angela, sorry for your loss, it is heartbreaking. My mare aborted this past March @ 295 days with twisted umbilical.

I'm so sorry Angela.. ((HUGS)) That must be soo heartbreaking. We were just talking the other day! This is horrible. I hope you somehow find an answer. Gypsy will be alright, just give her time. I know it's probably really stressful. I don't know what I'd do if Fancy aborted.. Goodness. ((HUGS))

I'm definitely interested in the picture, if it's not too much to ask. I'm going to school next year to be a vet, I eventually want to specialize in equine reproduction. Experience with seeing these kinds of things is always good, and who knows maybe someone can give some input.

Thanks for the support I really need it. If anyone see something wrong in the picture with the foal let me know it would be interesting to see if someone see something the vet missed.

Angela, I am very sorry for your loss, its a tough thing to go thru. As far as the picture, it appears that the umbilical cord is really large and thick. I'm not an expert as I have only seen a few foals aborted at this age. We did have a mare that had a foal a month early last year and that foal did not make it, she was born with an extremely large umbilical cord that even the vet said he had never seen anything like it and did not know what caused it to be so large and thick. Hopefully someone else can give some help.

Angela: I noticed right off the thick and large umbilical cord as well. I, like Beth, don't have a clue why that would be and certainly couldn't give you any idea on what the cause for the foal loss.

Angela~Warm hug..so so sorry for your loss...I know how devastating it is. I would strongly suggest that you have your mare cultured and a cystology done...perhaps there is a uterine infection going on. I know that my mare lost a full term foal at delivery due to placentitis that was not diagnoised....so sorry

I also was thinking the umbilicus was probably infected. had a foal full term born with an infection in her umbilicus. It was larger than normal but not that large. She went on to have a huge abcess and needed surgery at a month old
Too late now but you could have had the foal sent it and tested as to why it died in utero

Hi, I have just joined this forum because I was after some advice and support after my mare aborted yesterday, a little colt at approx 170 days. I would be really interested in your photos and I have taken some photos of mine as well. Am trying to guess the gestational age so is a bit of guess work and research on the internet. I am sorry for your loss, I too dont know why this happened.

Hi again, I just had a look at your photos and I think my colt was a similiar age, I am wondering if you have an approximate length or weight, my foal had a tuft of hair at the end of his tail. It is amazing how perfectly they are formed.
You said that your foal would have been the first spotted foal, were you able to see any colouring on yours, as I breed paints I was wondering the same but my foal had no fur, hope you dont think I am being gross but just trying to find out as much as I can
