Our TB mare Socks has finally foaled 2 weeks late, she had a beautiful solid bay filly by our friesian stallion Wessel yesterday morning at quarter to 4, all went well, and she only needed minimal help to make sure the bag was off her face and her shoulders required a bit of wriggling as it was bit of a squeeze!!
She was up and feeding within half an hour, she didn't go out yesterday as the weather wasn't great but turned her out today and she's been having fun. Socks went straight to stuffing her face, and the first thing the little filly did was stick her nose in some nettles!!!
Here are some pics:
Wessel all excited to see Socks back in the paddock next to him - excuse his hair-do as he likes to fluff up his forelock plait so looks like Elvis!!!
