Annie aborted a beautiful sorrel filly early yesterday morning. All of the filly's intestines were on the outside of her body. We noticed Wednesday morning that Annie was acting colicy so we gave her 10ml of Banamine IM which perked her up a bit. A short time later I noticed she had a bloody discharge from her vulva so we called our repro vet. She came and did a spec exam and noted that her cervix was still tight but she had a vericose vein that was bleeding hence the discharge. She palped her rectally and got a good bounce from the baby and did an ultrasound and didn't see anything to be alarmed about. She was gasy on her right side so we thought maybe some gas colic and the baby in the wrong position.

Annie perked up throughout the day but around 1:30a.m we heard her cast in her stall. Her water had broke and she was having a red bag abortion. The filly had her head and one leg back and we were unable to correct on our own so again repro vet on the way. The short end of the story, two vets myself and my mother later we delivered the foal with the head back. Annie retained placenta so she was given oxytocinX3. She is very sore from the being cast and the ups and downs of the birth. We are keeping a close eye on her and are thankful that she is still with us.

I am so sorry for your loss. My mare just had her first foal, (and my first foal experience) and I just cannot imagine going through this. My colt is a sorrel and so is the mare, I really feel bad for you. If there is anything at all I can do, please let me know. =0(

Suzanne, I just saw this and realize it was almost two months ago that you lost the foal. But I want to say I'm so sorry.

Is Annie still okay? No infections or anything? Are you breeding her again this year? Of course it's okay if you don't want to answer all these questions.

It seems the only consolation is that the foal wouldn't have been able to survive if carried to term, I don't imagine. I don't even know if they would do surgery on a horse with that condition, like they do for humans.

But most of all, I'm sorry for your loss. It would be difficult to go through.
