So Roxy was my first horse and I got her about a year ago. She was pregnant and due to foal at the end of the month so I started getting things ready. Then I got a call this morning that she had died giving birth... So I thought the foal had already been born and was okay. Well I got there and the foal was half out and half still in Roxy. It was horrible.. No vet was available! They had to cut my horse pretty much in half to finally get the filly out. We tried everything just to have her die too about an hour ago... They said the filly's back half was twisted a bit. Does anyone know what could have gone wrong? She has had foals before..

I'm so sorry Terra. Sounds like it might have been a bad presentation like a dog sitter. I'm so sorry again that this happened to you.

I'm so sorry! I can only imagine how you must feel! Keeping you in my prayers. When you say the filly's 'back half was twisted', do you mean twisted in the birth canal or twisted, as in deformed?

Thank you all so much! I think it was twisted in the birth canal because when she came out she looked pretty ok

Terra, I send my deepest sympathies. How tragic. Thankfully, they do not all turn out that way, but that doesn't change what you have had to endure.

I have just lost my foal in the same circumstances. It would have been my mares first foal. Luckily we were there when she went into labour and it took 2 vets quite some time }to pull the dead foal out by attaching rope to our beautiful fillys feet. Seeing my mare in that agony and the noises she made will haunt me for a long time. She was critically ill for 7 days and although we're not out of the woods yet, as least we still have her. Her foal was twisted inside her and had a back leg stuck. If we hadn't have been there, she would have died too. I want to send her to stud again, but I'm terrified the same thing will happen again and I don't know if I can take the chance?

My heart aches for you Debbie! I'm sick inside knowing the pain you're feeling. It will get easier as time goes on, but it's a slow and painful process. I'm so sorry for your terrible loss!

I believe if my maiden mare gets pregnant this year, I will take her to a vet her last month of pregnancy, to give birth. Jan O. did that and it seemed like a good idea and it worked well for her.

Again, I hope the pain of this nightmare fades and you have the strength to try again, if this is something you want to do in the future.
