Crap End To A Crap Week..

I was so excited earlier on this evening, one of the Mares was running milk, so we knew that a Foal was imminent. Nikki, was on the phone telling me all about today and how much she'd enjoyed KDF and I was telling her that we knew a Foal was going to be born tonight.
Unfortunately, much to the Mare's and my distress the Foal was dead. We tried to revive it, but it was still born.
As you can imagine what with having, to have Muffy put to sleep this week, this has really knocked me for six tonight. As Debie said, we have obviously hit the Good Luck Fairy with the Shitty Stick.
We have two Mares left to Foal, but I can't even get excited about it now. Until they are here safe and sound. So much for me having no stress. So you can see why its a crap end, to a crap week for me.

Oh no! I really hope the world gets itself straightened out for you. I don't know who I feel worse for, you or the mare. Anyone who thinks they don't understand because they are "just animals" has never spent any time with them.

Hugs to everyone and I'll be keeping various appendages crossed that the other two will have uneventful and happy births.

I'm so sorry about your crummy week. Two years ago my mare had twins a month early. Neither made it. It absolutely sucked.
