Unfortunately, it doesn't look like a speedy recovery is in play. Let's just hope for a recovery period at this point.

Stonestreet Farm ‏@StonestreetFarm
There is no change in Rachelís condition tonight, which is good & she enjoyed a mint. She is so courageous in this most important fight.

Stonestreet has some info about the nurse mare for the foal.
1) Rachel will not be reunited with her baby.
2) Rachel herself was raised my a nurse mare.

The reason she won't be united is because its almost 100% of the time when they go through something dramatic post foaling OR surgery where they are put under, they lose their milk.

The foal will generally have no idea about it, as long as their is a nipple, the foal is happy. Now Rachel on the other hand, I'm guessing she will know, but not sure what her feelings/actions will be like.
