Starflower squealed as her belly rippled, head pointed toward the aurora. The sky was beginning to pale, and the aurora looked washed out. Author's Notes
The foal still inside struggled, and two hooves stuck out briefly, pointed to one side. Ranya frowned. Dlameda peered at the birth canal unhappily. "At least she's not bleeding," Dlameda said.
"I had hoped she'd pass the first placenta before the second foal descended, but the way it's kicking, it could be in trouble. Dlameda, you better get that second foal repositioned right away."
These two living foals aren't enough to stop the dwindling of the herd, even if they live to adulthood. The genetics stock is just too limited. Sadly, there are no wild snow-unicorns.
Might there be wild snowies in one of the shards behind the time barriers? And even if there were, and the barriers drop, are they genetically different enough to solve the fertility problems that plague the snow-unicorns Jrilii's people depend on? What will Jrilii risk to find out?
Stay tuned for Wild Snowy Chase. Maybe Jrilii can turn this saying of her people upside down. You can bet she'll try!
