I just came in from the barn to get the theromometer...I tried tro check her and she is tight, she usually has labor for approx. 3 hours before she gets down to bussiness. Please pray for her and her foal....

Have you spoken to the vet by phone about massaging the mare's spine, and also massaging her belly while she's eating? This may encourage the foal to move naturally and release some pressure. Ask you vet what he or she thinks. I personally have no experience with this, so I'm just going with my "gut" here.

I have never heard of this, sure hope she foals safely! Sending prayers!

Is this nerve kind of paralyzing her back legs or causing her pain?

Theresa,

I agree with Maryann - try to massage her spine a bit . Hang in there - you are doing a good job! I am praying for her and you.

I have to say its times like these that you can truly see how kind some people really are.

I am in tears watching her care for this mare. I pray everything works out for her.

is your vet at least able to watch her on marestare online

and make anymore suggestions from what she sees

just a suggestion

praying all will be fine with her

edited : please consult with your vet first but might it help to roll her on her other side

by way of her back I have no experience with this at all just a thought

possibly the foal will shift a little???

Sending prayers for you, your mare and the foal. She looks to be in so much discomfort
Is there any other vets to call, or is someone on here the forum close to her to help
I have never had a foal, so I can't help that way, but I pray all of our prayers help

Me and the hubby just got home from there. (We were the extra help) We massaged her quite a bit. She got up and we helped her take some steps. I hope she'll be ok now. She has a lot of pain walking still. Theresa knows I'm here if she needs me.

{{{hugs}}} to Theresa & Momma mare.

Theresa and Art are wonderful people and I'm so glad they're our friends!

She's there for me and she knows I'm there for her.

Momma is such a nice mare
