I read through the thread on this mare in the 2010 Nursery area and yep, they had lots of trouble with the baby. The vet was there and they absolutely needed those chains and all the help from the people. I guess the baby was just big??? and the mare's contractions weren't strong enough to get that baby out. So, good job, people! And mare. LOL.
This is what the owner said:
"Normally when we are just assisting the mare we do not pull until they contract, however with this colt we had been waiting for the vet to arrive, so much time had been lost. He was also not budging and she was not push, so at that point we will do whatever we need to get the baby out. "
So all is good!
