    Well, I will get pics in the morning... by the time I got everything done tonight it was too dark... She has REALLY sticky, white, skim looking milk and her bag looks really tight. She doesnt have wax, but I know some of them don't. Her tail head is so dropped away it looks like she's holding it up, and she's still sucking on the hay bale... so maybe in the morning I will get up to a baby to take pics of. She's really close. Im thinking in the next 24-48 hours at least. I sprayed her with fly spray because gnats were swarming her, and the stinker gave her a pretty good kick while I was watching too:)
    Evie has teefers now, so no more letting her chew on my fingers :) I will get pictures of her too. She is sooo precious. Such a pleasure to be around. I hope this new baby has the same disposition. I heard a horror story today about a "hell baby"... the lady said she imprinted the foal and interacted with it for about 2 hours, then had to leave for a doctors appt. For about 3 hours and when she came back she couldnt get her hands on it and hasnt been able to since. 2 months later....

    New pictures? How can I properly stalk this thread if there are no new pregger mamma pictures? Lol. I don't think you will have a hell baby. I think you will be just fine with this little baby too.

    Stud colt... not a hell baby... but a dumb baby... but he had a really rough start. I knew she was close, and she mustve had him about 12am last night, because when we found him (in my backyard, hed gotten out of the fence), he was dry, and Lady was going crazy, Im guessing she had him around 10 because I checked on her at 8:30 and she was eating... Anyway, we got her back in the fence with her and he ran straight to Dusty and Evie, and Dusty turned and kicked him to the ground... so then I had to rearrange all my horses to move Lmady and "Skecher" to the foaling pen... THEN... he couldnt nurse... I guess her bag had gotten so full from him being away from her that she got really full, she wouldnt let him nurse, then when I held her she squealed, but didnt kick him away, she stood and adjusted and tried to get him to nurse, but he couldnt latch on, maybe from being weak from being away from her for so long and she was too full... anyway, I was up with the 2 of them, milked her, bottle fed him as much as I could, until she was almost empty, until after 4 am.... I got up at 9 and went to feed him again and HALLELUJAH!!!!! He can nurse on his own.... still a little struggle, and she is still turning walking away from him when he goes to nurse most of the time, but I have seen him latch on 3 times this morning and Im not watching constantly... any suggestions??? She seems to be a great mom, other than turning away from him when he tries to nurse sometimes... oh, and I already tried banamine ... gave her 10cc last night.... he has a star and a thin strip... black muzzle... probably going to grey out.... 1 back sock, 3 black hooves ans 1 white one... pics coming soon!

    WooHoo, a healthy baby!!! WE WANT PIX! WE WANT PIX! LOL. He will find nursing easier as time goes by cause he will be stronger and more coordinated. It may just take them some time to really figure out the whole feeding time thing.
