The vet said their IgG levels were normal, and yes, he always does hands on work. Also, as I said earlier, he has babies with the same problem, so he wants to find the problem too. No one knows why they stay alive for five days, they just do, no one has to do anything to keep them alive, and as soon as we saw the condition they were in, we milked the mare to get the colostrum, and bottle fed the foal.
Also, the vet had a theory, that the muscle didn't adhere to the bone, but he said he was totally in the dark on this one.
Never discourage anyone if they are making progress and learning, even if it isn't at the pace everybody else is going.
