First of all ... thanks go out to all of you who took the time to express your condolences on the loss of my mare. I cannot tell you how much it comforted me. You're an amazing group of caring, supportive people!!!
The necropsy results came back - "Inconclusive". The necropsy report says:
"There were no specific gross findings to indicate a cause foe acute death in this case. There were no changes in the heart or lungs and the brain was grossly normal. Thorough examination of the brain is pending fixation. Samples were collected for toxicology, should this be required, and will be held for a maximum period of 60 days."
They also found that she was pregnant - the "in utero age" of the male fetus was approximately 80 days. They also found that both ovaries were enlarged - the left ovary had 2 cysts in it and the right had one ... amazing that she was in foal!
Just wanted to let you all know what they found (or didn't find). Doesn't help much with closure ...
Thanks again everyone.
