    Looks like the little black and white mare in the top right cam is getting restless.

    Can anyone fill me in on what's going on here? Every time this filly tries to nurse, mom walks away, kicks her, and will do just about ANYTHING (it seems) to keep the baby from nursing. Watching now, and the baby got so frustrated that she started shaking her head, and eventually bucking. Not like a cute foal buck, but definitely like she's getting frustrated because she's hungry. She finally ran as fast as her little legs would take her, trying to sneak in for a snack. I watched almost this exact thing happen earlier, and it went on for about 20 mins before mom would FINALLY let baby nurse. I don't know a LOT about foaling, but this doesn't seem right. Maybe the mare retained a little bit of her placenta?
    Anyways, hopefully mom and baby work it out by the time you guys get a chance to look! It's just stressing me out a little lol

    From the look of things on the forum, the owner is aware of things. Kitty was a maiden I think and she's still learning how to be a mother. I think the nursing may be a bit painful and feel weird for her and she's still getting used to the situation.

    Baby seems to be nursing fine now.

    My guess was mommas just a little unsure about it, its probably uncomfortable for her right now.

    This was all the warning I noticed...

    She paced twice back and forth, turned and nipped at her shoulder, went up and down twice, and then I saw her water break and she started pushing standing up so I called the owner. She would have been easy to miss if I hadn't been watching steadily.

    This mare might go very soon. She was pawing, pacing, went down, got up, and looks otherwise annoyed!
