Our last foal of the season, Mississippi Belle was bred to HCM High Tech for her first foal -- I have waited 7 years for this baby, but I guess it was just not to be. Missy went into labor about 9 pm - wasn't progressing like normal - went in and checked and found a huge mass - didn't know if it was breach, or what, but ended up taking her to the clinic -- big mess there, the new facility was under some sort of renovation, the vets were disorganized the interns were inept (took nearly 40 minutes to get a catheter into my mare and she was sedated and just standing there! OH! . Ended up going to surgery for a c-section and finally got the foal out - needlesstosay lost a pretty little filly. Still touch & go for Missy - she is still in ICU, need to get the placenta out, bad night - I am pooped.
