First, I know of few people that would ever say a foal is stillborn.  They can have, say, a twisted cord and die in utero, and then be delivered dead, but I don't know of any that were just born as a stillborn foal except in Rh factors.

I have heard, but not experienced, the death of foals sometimes with repeated breedings to a particular stallion, when there is a Rh factor blood type incompatibility.  Just like in humans that have a negative blood type, carrying a positive blood type baby.  My daughter, for example, is A- blood type, so she receives a shot for Rh incompatibility.  If she is bred to the same stallion, in that case, and offspring could be a stillborn, and die in utero.

I could be wrong, and ask others to correct me.  She may have also had a difficult delivery, with no attendance at birth, and the baby be found dead and the owner call it a stillborn.  However, this breeder is showing a horse as "sold" that I know the horse actually died.  But apparently rather than admit it, she marked the horse sold -- as a friend had an interest in it, and was told the horse died. So, with this breeder, it's a bit confusing when talking truth.

But as I say, I know this mares breeder, and she breeds quality, not quantity, so, I'd probably still take a chance. 

But perhaps our friends here could render an opinion.  If she's pregnant for a spring foal, traveling would be safe at this point for her.

Sorry just saw this! Yes, its the same... the mare is pregnant right now! Last two were stillborn.  She wants 1000 for her. But, I really wasnt considering breeding or having a baby so soon. Whats your opinion? Kind of apprehensive--

It's one of my all-time favorite collections that I've found, at least when it comes to non-horse theme collections.

Looking for just the right  fabric to bind the tree skirt, so working on...
Found this fabric, last year, I think; just loved the collection, so had to buy it (paid full-price :o ).  And with the ruler I bought to make the tree skirt, I was able to cut interesting shapes to use.   The side borders will be pieced, the top and bottom borders will be the border print; I may use the same part top and bottom, or I may mix it up a bit.
