Aw haha :) And yeah she's VERY passive. Took some effort to get him to recognize her as a source of milk, but once he did, he just walked up underneath her and started suckling!


But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

That's good news and will make things easier on you, if she keeps letting him nurse.

Now he doesn't have a filly friend...he has a sister!

Hey guys. I have a rather unsettling update:

I got a text from my mom earlier today saying that the little guy was playing and running around with his filly friend in one of the fenced-in fields behind the stables. My mom was watching them but she needed to go inside for a few minutes. When she came back out, the little guy was on the ground right next to the fences (he was sitting as if he was resting) but he wasn't standing up and was seemingly having trouble doing so. He had a rather large bleeding gash on the side of his head too, so she thinks he probably lost his footing and slammed his head on the fencepost. Whatever the case, he definitely received a severe blow to the head.

My uncle (who is an equine vet) is keeping a very close eye on him and I'm not aware of his current condition or any definitive diagnosis, but needless to say, it's had me quite worried all dayy :(

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear! I hope he'll be alright - he's such a little guy and has already had enough of a bumpy start. Thank goodness your uncle is an equine vet! That's quite a bonus there. Prayers coming, and hugs for that little sweetie :)
