Congratulations!!! I'm surprised you didn't consider naming her Patty in honor of the holiday.
With the foal saver, I like to move the belly band forward one Velcro strip when attaching it. That way it doesn't have any potential to rub the umbilical stump. Have you done the first stump dip? Does she need an enema? All of my foals have needed an enema and still strained some to pass that hard meconium balls. I usually give them 2-4 hours before I do it though.
She is just cute as a bug!

Yes I dipped the stump in 5% iodine. And will do it a few more times yet, just to be safe.
She did need an enema. I figured she was a few hours old and still hadnt passed the meconium. Her butt was very clean...So We gave an enema at approximately 4 hours old. And within an hour, she had her first poop. Didn't seem to strain much. They just popped out. LoL.
She has SUCH a unique facial marking. It's all jagged on one side. Her bottom lip is all white. It's ADORABLE!
Definitely Frame and Sabino on this little girl.
