Hi All,
A few years ago I had a foal born with what is termed 'wry nose'.
Another lady this season was referred to me when she was presented with a colt foal with the same condition and it has prompted me to re do Bubbys website to hopefully provide some knowlege of what this condition is and the stages of recovery after an operation.
My mare was quite severe with her front teeth 90 degrees vertical to the right side of her face so she couldnt drink by herself and would not have been able to survive on her own, she would have slowly starved to death.
There is virtually no information on this condition as most of the foals are put down due to the cost of the operation and amount of work involved and as its quite a rare condition the cost of research hasnt been warranted.
I would love to hear from other people who have had foals like Bubby and also would like to ask them a few questions privately for my own research.
Through making this public on a couple of Australian yahoo groups I have found another mare who didnt need an operation and has foaled a beautiful filly, which gives me a lot of encouragement, as Bubby is in foal to my Amir.

So here is Bubby and her journey from birth to now.

Karen

nb: many people will not understand how and why I had to do my best for Bubby, mostly when it came to spending many thousands of dollars. I am a very, very small breeder and this foal would not have been born without my choosing to mate these 2 horses, and as soon as I knew she would be able to be used as a riding horse and a breeder I had to give her a chance to survive.
If anyone knows how to get this website onto google or other search engines i would be most appreciative.
