    If you want to see pics of a text book foaling - merlot's foaling is here...

    Regarding handling a foal, I handled my guy Zephyr Moo a little at birth and then stood back to let Mama do the bonding. Then I handled (and still do) him every day several times for no more than 5 - 10 minutes each time.
    There are pics of his handling on his growing up thread here

    I'm not saying this is the only way but it has worked a treat for us and he is just a peach to handle. (3 months now)

    I wish Twiggy's owner had done this with her when she was born! Instead she was handled at feeding time (twice a day) and turnout and even then she wasn't "handled" at turnout because no one could put a halter on her or lead her until she was 6/7 months old!

    Can I book one of those births in please

    I'm really hoping that the foal arrives this week - my sons are on holiday and it would be great to have them around to play (or maul) with it haha every time we're there instead of just the night visits they can only make when they return to school next week.

    We have a foal halter ready - i'm planning on this foal being the easiest thing on 4 legs to handle - now just got to tell the foal that xx

    Yesterday saw another beautiful sunny day (albeit a little frosty first thing) so I thought another perfect day for Foxy to go out - of course she found more mud to roll in.......

    Picture 1 - Enjoying the early morning sunshine.

    Picture 2 - The Mud Monster returns!!!!!

    AND STILL NO FOAL!!!!!!!!!! (I really thought the gallop the day before might have jogged it out)

    I've been convincing myself that tonight's the night for over a week haha.

    Had another day out today (no rolling around in mud thank goodness) and half expected it to be in the field when I went to bring her in - but alas, no - she's still carrying baby around with her. Boobies full, bum relaxed although she hasn't got the v shape - she seems almost to have split muscles under her belly (running from back to front) - if twins were a possibility it would look like there was one each side - but i'm thinking this is just weaker muscles due to this being her 7th or 8th foal?

    Well folks, here's the latest on Mrs Fox!

    Still eating although not as much as usual - and my hubby said after his early morning visit that she looked thinner so it looks as though she's dropped even further today so fingers crossed - and dare I say it (after convincing everyone around me for the past 2 weeks that "tonight's going to be the night" ), it might be tonight.......

    We seem to have what looks like a little waxing (she didn't wax with her previous 2 foals, but then again, she foaled 10 days after bagging up with both of them and as we're now on day 22 i've given up going by her past history ).

    She is very sweet at the moment though and seems to want company and just follows me round the stable whilst i'm mucking out - she's still not keen on belly contact though, hence the mud....
