Well good thing we did take them into the vet. Ohio's placenta tore (I was afraid of that after she held onto it for so long) so we had to remove the placenta and then flush her.

Shiver got a pretty much a clean bill of health. He is a bit dehydrated and weak. He is getting up and nursing on his own now so hopefully that helps the dehydration.

I gotta admit I am feeling just a bit discouraged. I am used to foals that are born up and running. While he is very alert his easy going attitude does worry me a bit, hopefully I am just being a worry wart...

Glad to hear both mare and foal are all right and very good decision on your part to follow your gut and take them in. Hopefully Mr. Shiver is just a little dehydrated and tired from the trip to the vet. I assume you trailered them there and I can imagine a trailer ride at ~24 hours old would be a little exhausting! I'm sure he'll be up and giving you a run for your money in no time. Sending good vibes your way.

Finally...a foal! And such a nice fella. Congrats to you. & glad you took them to the vet & didn't take chances. Give him a chance to get his legs under him-he'll probably be scampering around pretty soon.

You'll soon be regretting that you said he lays down too much! ;) he'll be up and around in no time!
