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!

Thanks for the advice on the Blanket. Great idea. I'll do exactly that.

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.

Oh yes, and we called our vet and told her. The first thing she said when she saw it was us was "Chilly had her baby!" My mom was like...Yup! She was very excited.

Vet will be here tomorrow to do an IgG(?) on her to test her antibody level and check Chilly over.

Chilly is being wonderful. I am afraid she is going to step on her when Wrecker is sleeping though! But so far, so good. We've already had 6 visitors before 10am. LoL.

Congratulations!! She is beautiful! Looks like she's got her mommas belly spotting.

May I ask where the name 'Wrecker' came from?

Well Congrats!!
I am also for something "PATTY" in her name.....I didn't get to be a Patricia because we don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Germany.....
