That birth was witnessed by many folks through Foal Patrol, people with various levels of knowledge about these kinds of things. I think the farm must have asked that for further updates send email to that address. I saw that same post on all the pages where I saw folks talking about the birth. I think they would expect to get email in response.SSilence86 wrote:lurkey mclurker wrote: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
I did the very same thing last night. Continued thoughts for her & all her connections.
I didn't send email only because I know how crazy this time of year is for the foaling/breeding farms, with or without complications. It'd be nice if they respond but I wouldn't be surprised if it took them awhile. And I still hope no news is good news for the foal and mom, that they're still fighting.
Better yet I hope, at some point in time, the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame posts a blog educating viewers about these rare complications, and lets the farm employees continue about their business. Perhaps if Edition Farm gets enough email, the museum will see the need to do that so don't feel bad about contacting the farm as they requested. I just hope they've all thought through this possibility and it doesn't stop them from doing these livestreams again in the future. Things like this really can be a fun and real-life educational experience for racing fans.
Come on, La Verdad, get this done - don't make them have to collect your colostrum - that's no fun.
