The foal started nursing because the twins kept 'railroading' her to momma's udders. It was funny to watch.
Baby has sorrel ears ,a sorrel heart between her ears, and freckles on her butt.PHEW!!! No lethal white. OH...she has a blue eye and a brown one.
BTW...I have to get to Wal-Mart for a new scanner so I can send pix.
Wow, baby sounds beautiful. I can’t wait for pictures of her. Any name yet? I’m glad everything worked out.
That baby’s gonna be cute with those little sorrel ears. Does that make her a Medicine Hat paint?
I like to give my foaling mares a shot of occytocin after I’ve made sure the baby is ok and has nursed. Even if it looks like they’ve passed all the afterbirth I just like to make sure they’ve cleaned it all out. It doesn’t hurt them, just makes them lay down and have some more contractions for a while. Plus, I think occytocin is the “bonding” hormone, so it helps with that too.
