@8 am our baby arrived All white except for the ears are sorrel.
Baby hasn't nursed yet...after birth is still hanging from mom. Do I panic yet???
Congratulations! Duchess and frog have both had far more babies than I have. But till they get here I’ll say what I know.
Don’t pull on the afterbirth. Let it hang. If it’s dragging you can even knot it. to keep her from tearing it. That’s not a worry it can take a few hours.
You say baby isn’t nursing, but what IS she doing? Just resting, trying to get up... it can take a long time for them to figure out where to go to nurse.
Now.... who is this baby and where are the pictures? Long time no talk!
Hair is right. Tie a knot in the bottom of the afterbirth. If it soesn’t drop after 6 hours, call a vet. You’ve got about a twelve hour window for the foal to nurse. For sure, the foal has some color right? Not solid white?
Oh, and congratulations :)
Congrats on the new baby Mommadoo! You’re gonna have SO much fun playing with it. I’ve only seen one of my foals born and he took about 2 hours to get up and nurse. The rest of them foaled while I was at work and were nursing by the time I got home. I’m hoping yours is all healthy and happy and running around like crazy by now. I’ll look forward to the pics!
