Can anyone shed some light on my situation, I posted some weeks ago regarding a clydesdale mare with a weak vaginal floor causing her a visual vaginal prolapse when lying down and getting up, this never got worse than rugby ball size, she foaled reasonably unassisted, the prolapse was held in place while she foaled as a precaution and she foaled fine and cleaned within an hour or so, however we lost her foal at 3 days sadly, the mare seemed to pick up fine and at 5 weeks post foaling we starting thinking of bringing her back into work but at week 6 post foaling she was found dead out at grass with a full uterine prolapse, intestines out ect, what could have caused this? the vaginal floor prolapse had gone and our vet said she could have beeb re-bred easily enough although we refrained from the idea.

A prolapse for no apparent reason that long after foaling would be most peculiar. What did the necropsy show?

Vet didn`t see any need to come and see her, he couldn`t give any explanation either, he had examined her during pregnancy and was never concerned for her as it was just vaginal wall that showed and he said this was not perfect but ok. It had no grazing as we were very careful to keep her on a god clean bed ect so infection should have been little or none. Vet said it would have been the internal bleed from the uterus that would have killed her very quickly.
I think I will always look for some kind of answer as to why.

How sad for you with the double whammy! I think another hard part for you is never knowing... I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sadly, the fact that you are left asking questions indicated that there was a need for the vet to look at her and do a necropsy :-(

You really won't ever have an answer now, and all you can do is put it behind you and move on. The good news (if there is any in a situation like this) is that - as I noted above - it would be a very peculiar situation, and not one that I would expect you to see ever again.

I'm sorry for your loss. Hopefully, as Jos said, this will never happen again. I wish you the best and maybe you'll be on foal watch with the rest of us next foaling season.

A Cormack I'm so sorry. We lost both of our foals this year. I just want to say that you said your mare practically just dropped dead for no obvious reason and the vet said he saw no need to come and see her body and perform the necropsy, I would definately be seriously looking for a new vet and I recommend that you do to.
