Rebel is 2 days old now and he nurses pretty frequently but for only a few minutes at a time. It seems as soon as he nurses he is laying down for another nap. The only time he is up is when they move around. I don't think he's too thin but Chanti's bag isn't very big. I checked today to make sure she did have milk and she does but I expected her bag to be a little bigger after she had the foal instead of smaller.
She is on Lifestages Mare and Foal by Nutrena, on pasture 24/7 although it's already just about bare because of the dang weeds. We are going to buy a good quality round bale of bermuda to leave out and I am probably going to check around for something to add to her feed to help her out. Any recommendations on a good supplement I can give her to help with her weight? She's thin but not horribly thin.
Also, when he lays on his side to nap his breathing sounds like snoring. Chanti did this as a youngster and still does even when she's not napping but I wanted to see if that was normal or a sign of a respiratory problem.
