CLASH! "Ahhh!" Kayla screamed as a bolt of lighting slashed and illuminated the dark night sky. She was up and was waiting for her mare, Missy, to have her foal. Missy was a dark bay riding pony, nothing exciting. She was in foal to her best friend's stallion, Andy.
She had called Mira to tell her that Missy was in foal, but she hadn't picked up. She also called the vet, Dr. Mackin. He was on his way and she knew that he had done many foaling calls, so she knew he would have this under control.
After what seemed like years, Dr. Mackin finally came. He checked on Missy and told her she was doing fine. "One problem though." Many situations ran through Kayla's mind. Would this be Missy's last night? Would the foal die? She just didn't even want to think about it. Dr. Mackin checked Missy once again.
He finally spoke and said, "I hope the three of them do okay." Kayla looked at Dr. Mackin like he was crazy. "What do you mean the three of them," Kayla asked. "I mean," said Dr. Mackin, "that Missy is having twins. I feel one is strong and healthy so far, but i don't know about the other." Kayla stood there. She could lose a foal, two foals, two foals and a mare, or, she wished, none. All of a sudden, Missy took a deep breath and pushed. "Kayla," Dr. Mackin said with a little hint of panic, "this foal feels as if it is still born." Kayla felt like crying.
