Sad day for me and fi

 Fiona gave birth last night to a dun filly who was perfect in everyway however nature being nature meant that Iris was Pts at 6.30 am this morning the vet had no choice she had a hernia and was too little to treat so had started to colic. 

 

Trying to find a foal for fi via foal bank and vets etc as both me and the vet agree she has lots of milk and even now is sat with her dead foal and will not leave her alone but i know this has to be done i have no choice in it and when the time comes she can let go of her.

 Thank you fi not doing well she will not leave the body alone.

 

This was Iris when she was born when she was doing ok like the vet said fi made a perfect foal. Glad i managed to get a pic of her before she died and spent time with her and fi got a good 6hrs with them both and heard her winny and fi answer back and she tried so hard to fight but it was not fair to let her fight any longer.

OMG really sorry to hear that. Really sad news. I hope you manage to find a foal that needs a mum for Fi to be able to have a baby to look after.
