“We have a heartbeat!”
During Honey’s ultrasound today, about 30 minutes ago, I rejoiced at those words.
“Wait–we have another heartbeat.”
Most twin foals abort at 7 to 8 months–and don’t make it.
Sometimes the fetuses get tangled with each other and can’t be born–and when they die, so does the mother.
I can’t risk Honey Bear.
“We could pinch off the smaller fetus and her body will reabsorb it. Then the pregnancy will most likely go on. I have another Vet we can use to pinch off the weaker fetus.”
But it’s a BABY. It has a heartbeat.
And I would choose to KILL it?
How could I do that?
One awful choice.
