Found a photo of a stud with the markings of the colt we lost, so I took a magic marker and colored in the white that my foal did not have and left the markings he did have. Just wishful thinking of what he may have looked like all grown up.

This is what he could have been:

Jo, I'm so sorry. He would have been beautiful. I'm sure. That is so sad. What breed was he? I don't remember, but did you have other foals this year? If so, are they from the same stud? I'm sorry if you have told us all this before. I try to keep everyone straight.

Jo Angela~ What a hansome foal your mare produced.....How is you mare doing? Hope she is still recovering steadily. I really encourage you to look ahead and perhaps toy with the idea of rebreeding. I know in 2006 what finally made up my mind was I had that Live Foal Guarantee with my breeding and the stud had gone on and done some really nice winning the year my mare was pregnant and it was good for only one more breeding season. I lost my foal April 14, 2006 and we finally rebred my mare in August of 2006 and a wonerful filly born in July of 2007...I like you have one mare, beloved, riding, friend....she is now 17 and I did want a baby of hers to be my golden age horse. The only thing I did do different the second time around was I did ship her off to foal out at the Equine Hospital. 24 hour vet on duty, foal alert, and necessary surgery there. Of course that guaranteed she would have an uneventful foaling at 4 pm in the afternoon. Best $900 I spent.....

Big Squeeze!

Cj I have 3 TWH's only my 1 mare and 2 geldings and the colt would have been triple registered TWH,SSH & NSSH.

Jan my husband wants a foal from my mare so bad but at this time we are to scared to chance her, so we are checking into embryo transfer, just a idea.
The stud owner offered to rebred or assist in anything we would like to try, he was really looking forward to this foal also.
He did not have to offer because my foal was alive for a good 1 1/2 hrs and he also qualified as a spotted horse even though it barely made it, we was hoping for more color, but I would rather had the mostly black than a mostly white.
My husband don't like a lot of flash, so to him the foal was perfect and it was to be his anyway.

Vet will be out every Friday for a month to check her and at the end of the month hopefully determine the damage or amount of healing.

Embryo transfer sounds good too. Then you won't have to give up your mare for riding...Those transfer mares are old hats...I will keep you in my positive thoughts as you work through what will work best for you. Glad to hear that Mira is in such good hands, your vet sounds very compassionate.

I wish you the best on whatever you do. I can't imagine how devistated I'll be if I lost the foal, but losing my mare would be worse. Again, so sorry for your loss. I hope that in the future you will get your foal from her.

I'm so sorry Jo :-(. I can't imagine how devastating it is for you. All my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your husband. I hope everything works out for the best for you guys.
