I would suspect that Squid is running short on system resources, specifically TCP sockets. Have you tried tweaking FreeBSD to increase either the total # of TCP sockets available on the system, or the # available per process, or both? Offhand, I have no idea where these tuning parameters are in FreeBSD, or if they are tunable without rebuilding the kernel. Even if I did, you didn't bother to mention the VERSION of FreeBSD, the hardware its on, or even the version of Squid, so getting specific is difficult.
