I am so sorry to hear of your loss however, what jumped out at me while
reading your necropsy report is that there were no fecal pellets, so perhaps
she had a block.  There should have been lots of fecal material in the
colon, especially since her stomachs were full of grass.  She was eating but
not excreting is what it sounds like to me.

I don't know if you have dogs but they love to eat placenta.  There are a
lot of healthy nutrients in the placenta and my dogs love lambing season and
get very excited when they see me carrying a placenta.  I always wash off
all the grass/hay and they can't wait for me to finish and divide it up for
the 3 of them.
