Anybody know why Winchester would have the scours?? He's definitely not weak and he's nursing fine. He got them on day 9, they cleared up on day 12 and now they're back again... I will post new pics of him in a few also!

Do you have someone who will help you clean him off? If you leave that on him it could cause sores, which wont be any fun for the little guy

Yes. I just got finished cleaning him... But is this common? None of my other babies had scours after the first 2 weeks or so.

Thank you! He is full of himself for sure!

The scours have cleared up since I cleaned him up and he's back to himself... Sassy and handsome as ever

So what is everyone's advice on a biting foal? I don't want to cause him to be head shy at all, so I've been consistently pushing his face away, but he is very persistent...

And I tell him no firmly... He is not being mean but he is trying to show me he is the boss about it...

It doesn't take much to teach manners to a foal. A quick flick the moment he attempts to bite will teach him that it isn't allowed and also isn't a game. If he is only scolded in the moment of misbehaving (he knows what he did to get a negative reaction), he will not become head shy. Reinforce positive behavior and scold negative behavior, then he will try harder to get more positive rewards for good manners.
