Bring her in. The foaling barn I worked in kept the mares nearing due dates in paddocks close to the barn, so we could keep an eye on them throughout the day. We did have a few that went into labor while outside; they were caught the moment they began showing signs and brought in with plenty of time to prep for the foaling.

Dawn, here is a screenshot of a post by the farm’s manager on the thread on the National Museum of Racing & Hall of Fame page. Gives a few more details.

Anyone know anything more about this little girl?

I love the owner's sense of humor. :lol:

This morning's update from Annette Orlando, Edition's Farm Manager: significant changes in quantity of wax; evidence of drippings on her legs.

So, what does this mean?

It means we're all still waiting La Verdad!


I'll be at a hockey game tonight (most likely) and I just know if I go, she'll foal and I'll miss it. :roll:

Wish we could get some news. The little filly can't know it, of course, but there's lots of people pulling for her recovery.

@Lurkey...I'm certainly no expert by any means, but at the moment (7:20pm EDT) LaV doesn't look like a mare who's going to give birth anytime very soon.

Usually in cases like the Freud/It’s In His Kiss filly, I'd say no news is good news...but these two labor/birth events (premature separation of the placenta aka red bag and meconium aspiration) is double trouble.

After the Finish Line (Dawn Mellen) posted "For further updates, please email the farm at, vivien@editionfarm.com." Don't think I'll see any updates unless and until it comes from the farm.

For whatever it's worth, Matthew Maiello, who works at Edition Farm, said a couple of days ago that the vets were optimistic, that both mom and foal were still alive, and that they come from a family of fighters.

Well if this makes anyone feel a little better, we had a mare that had placentitis without us knowing until the day she foaled and the foaling ended up being a red bag and the foal was covered in meconium. He made a full recovery.

I waffled back and forth for about an hour today and finally sent a polite email this evening sort of introducing our interest from the forum, and saying I/we understood if they weren't going to post any updates, but that we were rooting for the filly and mare and hoped there would be good news.

And now I'm feeling like an internet stalker and embarrassed and I should go crawl under a blanket and go back to lurking. Ack, eep. /o\

And yes, Summer Bird, that makes me feel a little better, thank you for sharing your experience. <3

Thank you for taking the time simply letting them know we care, without prejudice.

Lurkey, don't feel like that for one minute. The site would not have publicized the email address if the farm did not welcome polite good wishes. We are all pulling for that mare and foal, and maybe knowing people care helps bring some comfort to those who are close to the mare and her baby. We can only hope.

I did the very same thing last night. Continued thoughts for her & all her connections.
