    I like all of those names!
    I have a couple questions....
    Wouldnt something be hanging out of her if there were still afterbirth in there???
    And if not, how quick will she go down... I can give her a shot of penicillin right now if it would help.
    AND, my baby has pooped 4 or 5 times that I have seen, she seems to struggle a little, and only poops 1 or 2 little marbles at a time... should I still give her an enema, or is she fine?
    AND... Is there anything I missed? I doctored her naval with betadine, I checked Dustys milk, its good, I imprinted the foal, what else should I do???

    I don't know about your questions but had to add in my 2y son watches the laptop every morning and got excited when he seen the baby so I asked him what her name should be and he said 2 names over and over..lol the first was Think You and the other was BEEBE

    Remember this is a 23month old and his favorite words are thank you and baby, just doesn't always sound right...

    Awww. That's awesome!
    I like Meesha, Story, Stormy, and my 4 year old also said Fire, ....
    I don't know which one is perfect yet though... I have to play with her for awhile first... She and my dog rubbed noses earlier, and of course, I didnt have the camera :( They are getting rained on right now though.... they have lots of trees for cover, but its pouring. Should I move them back to the foaling pen where there a shed??? And HOW do I go about doing that???

    If you are unsure at all that mom has fully expelled the placenta it would be wise to get a vet out and have him check her. Better safe than sorry in that respect.

    In regards to baby, again, if you're unsure...give the enema; it won't hurt her either way.

    I would get them back to where there is shelter; lead mom, and baby should follow.

    Okie dokie... I havent been able to find any straw for bedding, which is one of the reasons I have them out in the pasture, since it gets muddy back there (not in the shed, just in the pen) ... but I have shavings... should I put them in there???

    Okay, my vet will be out here this afternoon to do a check up on them both... so we should be fine. I kept the sac and put it in a bucket and in the back of my truck with a plastic bag over it since there were already buzzards flying around... nasty birds.
    It was really heavy...

    OK if the "sac" is really really heavy, then that IS the placenta. Good idea to have the vet look it over and make sure no pieces are missing.

    If baby keeps struggling to get the little balls out, then enema might be good. But keep watching, if it all passes you can leave her alone. There are about 18" of those meconium balls.
