More bad news today. We have three mares in Iowa with a friend. He is the one who owned the stud that had to be put down a few days ago, Taxes daddy. Two of the mares were in foal to him again and one had her baby a few weeks ago, the other one, Barbie, was trying to give birth today and the colt was so big that she got into trouble. The vet and Elliot tried to pull the baby because she was in distress but they got it out as far as its hips and couldnt move it any further. The vet said it was the biggest foal he had ever seen. Unfortunately the foal died in the process, a spotted stud colt who would have been the brother of the yearling we have here called Dream. Barbie is still down and we are hoping that she will recover but she is not good. She is also the mother of Wiggle.
I am going to keep this short because I am really upset, he has just phoned a few minutes ago. I have posted a picture of Barbie, please pray for her, and her yearling colt Dream when he was about 5 months.
Hope you are all well. ((((Hugs)))))
