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.

I am so so sorry to read about Muffy and the still born Foal. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with the two mares.

Lori said...

So sorry to hear about your rotten week...I can't send a do-over so I will send a hug instead.

Gaina said...

Oh no! I am so sorry ((HUG)). They say bad things come in three's so my Mum usually deliberately breaks something (not a mirror!) and that's the three out of the way.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of your Mares give birth easily to beautiful, healthy babies xxx
