Rem had a beautiful bucskin colt tonight. I missed it :( I came out at 6pm and she was doing nothing, ate all her dinner, seemed happy and content. I turned the heat down in the barn and went into have dinner with the kids and to put them to bed. Took my time, did dishes, cleaned the house etc. Came out after nine and she was standing in one corner and in another corner was a foal. Not dryed off and pretty chilly. I turned the heat up amd dried him off (tips of his ears were pretty chilly hoping for no freezing...I know it's my fault, I messed up I shouldn't have turned the heat down) Anyways he is up and nursing and doing awesome. Running around like a little dare devil. Vet check in the AM hoping I didn't mess up to bad and cause frost bite :( I wish Rem would have given me some sign. Her vulva was light pink and I couldn't milk even a drop, now she is milking like a dairy cow! Anyways will post pictures and vet check results in the AM.
