    foal arrived this morning!!!!!

    Well.... after a lot of waiting my mare has had a little filly. I am sooo excited right now. I arrived at the farm this morning to find a little filly just newly born. Already strong and on her feet as we arrived she had her first poo and also saw her suckling. She is a gorgeous bay colour with fawn coloured legs and black mane and tail. Picture overload to follow just need to upload them. Had a bit of excitement with my mare as she hadn't delivered the placenta properly and so after a while we decided to ring the vet. We had trouble keeping her still and all she did was spin while the vet tried to break away the placenta. After quite a while of trying to keep her still enough the vet decided that she would need to be sedated. Well that was a mission in itself. The sedation didn't work so I took my mare for a walk around the field with the foal tagging along and let her eat grass for a while, she quickly relaxed and was stood still so the vet approached oh heck off she went again spinning and prancing around eventually placenta out and all okay. Mamma and baby doing extremely well, as for me I put my back out, got trodden on and barged into fencing so a little battered and bruised

    Northern - survived indeed haha. I now have a feeling that these antics were why the previous owner sold her in foal.
