When I got to the stable yesterday I was informed that the pregnant frieser mare had given birth to a dead foal one month before her due date. She had gotten an illness which is normally vaccinated against, but the owner hadn't done it.
This is such a tragedy. The owner had invested so much money in a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with an amazing and very famous stallion, succeeded in getting pregnant and now lost the foal. She must be so sad and I really feel for her, she is such a nice person.

But my heart goes out to the horse most of all. She was standing in her stall with the afterbirth still hanging out of her, more than 12 hours after the birth, and the veterinarian visited several times to give her different shots and medication. I hope she will still be alive when I arrive tonight. That horse is so beautiful and sweet, I just love her.
